I have a quick question for a veteren of sessions out there.

We're building a shopping cart and I'm playing with the idea of keeping the
checkout information such as Shipping and billing address in a session
variable until I retrieve it at checkout.

The checkout is a step process:

Shipping info -> billing info -> confirmation -> final.

At shipping and billing the information would be stored in a session
variable. To be retrieved at confirmation, etc.  (cc information would be
encrypted before storing in the session var.)

Otherwise I could possibly create the order starting with shipping info in
the database and merely pass the order number that is assigned to them.

What is the opinion, are sessions reliable enough to go through the step
