How do I put variable features on my success page?


Sometimes it is helpful to have certain variables passed through to the success page so you can display them to your customer. For example you may wish to display the order number on the success page so customers can keep a record of this.

There are several ways to achieve this, if you keep a database with the records in you can just extract it from there. Another way would be to include a query string onto the success page's URL, this is the method that will be explained below.
