Hi gang,

I've been subcontracted out to help a client with their website. The
client is a utility service and wants their customers to be able to
click a link from their account info page in our website, and go
directly to the paybill website.

Currently, we simply link them to when they click on the
"pay your bill" link. The client has requested that we make this
process easier, they don't want the customers to have to re-enter their
account information.

I'm curious if there is a simple URL that I could link them to instead,
something along the lines of:

that would prompt the paybill website to load up their account
directly. I can't quit figure out a way to do this myself. I was
curious if you have any suggestions. Thanks.

Just one caveat of caution - beware that a URL like that could easily allow
other users to spoof it with ID's that are not their own if they
knew/guessed the ID format - unless you protect it with some other form of

Pick it up in the subsequent asp page using the string Request.QueryString.

As others have said, beware of sending data through a querystring, even
to a secure server.

You could contact Paybill and see if they have an SDK available.  You
might be able to post the entire bit to them, eg.
<form method="post" action=" "> where
script is the name of the script that would process the information.
