here we r planning to link our e-commerce site with another e-commerce site.
here in the home page we give the link. after one finish purchase, the total amount, product details, must be posted to our site.
all the payments will be done in our site.
here if we go the final purchase page of linked website the values are posted to the page of the linked website. here the same values can be posted in our web site.
is it possible. give me the details.

You can do this in different ways.Since it is an ecommerce transaction you have to make sure that, the purchase details are safely passing..If you have access to another site(i mean if you have permission to access their database,normally people don't give permission to access to thier dbs..)..then simply you can read that purchase details from their database..
You should read the values from their site using file() function or something..but this case that site should give the values in a readable format.and values should give in the hidden fields or something...and the user should come to your site through a hyperlink..so value you should be able to read..
the first option is a viable one...If the another site is not allowing to access their main database then probably you may ask for creating a second database for the transaction purpose after each transaction the second database also should be updated so you can simply read the value from second database...

hi siju rajan,
thanks for ur reply.here we have to discuss with the other site, whether they give permission to access their db.
if they dont give the permission, we have decided to pass the total amount, merchantid,
productuct id, from the displayed form.
in this case if one checkout from the linked site, he have to register in our site.
we need the values for our reference.
