Demonstration:   Reseller Functions in WebStore
Form tag:   <INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="rsc" VALUE="31953-990923094722640">
rsc=31953-990923094722640 refers to a specific reseller present in the reseller database. E-mail to reseller 31953-990923094722640 will be generated for orders placed using the form to the left to access WebStore.
Form tag:   <INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="store" VALUE="reseller">
WebStore will require the store setup file reseller.setup when this form is submitted. Storing a database filename for resellers in $reseller_data_file in the store's setup file activates reseller functions in WebStore.

Reseller Link to WebStore:   &rsc=31953-990923094722640
The value in the name=value pair for the reseller code in the query string of this link is present in the reseller database. E-mail to reseller 31953-990923094722640 will be generated for orders placed using this link.

The following two links will not send an order e-mail to the reseller. E-mail to Administrator contains a small section describing the status of the reseller code received from the referring URL.
No rsc code
Link does not contain a name=value pair for the reseller code.
20001
The value in the name=value pair for the reseller code in this link does not exist in the reseller database.

Links pointing to WebStore from a reseller's advertising html document must include the rsc= name=value pair for the reseller's code. A valid reseller code must be included in the query string of the URL.
<a href = "http://www.ratite.com/400CS/ws400CS.cgi?rsc=31953-990923094722640">

Links pointing to database categories in html documents within WebStore must include a category= name=value pair and the cart_id= key for the shopper's cart id in the query string of the URL.

Do not include the rsc= key for the reseller code in these links as WebStore will substitute this name=value pair into query string links wherever cart_id= is found.
