    $REMOTE_ADDR is the pre-defined PHP variable for the IP address of the person viewing any given page.

    What kind of order form are you using? Straight HTML? If so go to www.boaddrink.com and grab their free phpformail and add the $remote_addr like Hostit mentioned. This script will email all the form info very nice and neat along with the IP address. We saved ourself 4 fraud sign ups last week. The credit card information was from here in the US but all the IP's were Indonesia. If the IP does not match the address area we don't accept it.

    Hi
    This is how to grab the IP address of someone ordering:

    PHP Code:
    <?
    $ip 
    getenv("REMOTE_ADDR");
    ?>
    Then in your HTML page insert a hidden field and include the following:

    <input type="hidden" name="IP" value="<?php echo $ip?>">


    Or if your using PHP Mail() just use $ip inside the body of the email.

    Hope that helps
