Storing Shopping Items

P: n/a
What is the best way to store the items and quantities that customers have chosen across a session without using cookies
The customer does not need to login to do online shopping and users will be prompted to enter shipping information when they proceed to checkout

Any input will be very much appreciated! Thanks!

Limited functionality, but it's a start:

Do you really think paranoid people who don't trust your site to keep a
session cookie are going to give you their credit card? I know this is
probably a pointy-haird boss requirement, but I've never understood the
logic behind making an e-commerce site work without cookies...

If I am to use session variables to store the item numbers and quantities in the shopping cart, do people generally store them in an array as a session variable or one session variable refers to one item (i.e. the variable name will be the item number and the value of the variable will be the quantity)

Thanks
