Submitting the Cart to an Order Management System

When users want to check out the contents of their shopping cart and create an order, the contents of the shopping cart will need to be transferred to an order management system for processing and fulfillment. The order management system may continue to ask the user for more information (such as credit card or other payment information) to continue the checkout transaction process. There are two principal methods for passing information to an order management system: XML and HTML forms. Both use HTTP as the protocol for transmitting information to the order management system, and both use the Order Management System URL property as the target for the HTTP message.
