ASP Shopping Cart Help Needed

hi,

i'm about to develop an asp shopping cart but need some hints on best
practice before i start.

how should i assign a unique id to a user ? i've used the sessionid in
the past but have found that the sessionid is not unique. is there a
better solution for assigning a unique id to each visitor ?

secondly, what's the best way to track visitors as they move about my
site ? i'll be recording items in the cart in a database but will
still need to track the user on each page ... session variables or a
cookie ?

many thanks for any help provided ...

Session ID is unique. But check this out:
http://www.aspfaq.com/cart/ for an example. (And then if you use it, go
here http://www.aspfaq.com/ and click the paypal image. :])
