Another thing to consider, most users on the internet allow cookies, and those that don't want cookies can usually differentiate between allowing session cookies and other types of cookies.
In the end, if a user doesn't want to allow cookies, they shouldn't expect to be able to do e-commerce type stuff like purchasing items, or even have user accounts. Considering they don't allow cookies, these same users probably don't want to sign up and give you their information anyways. Use sessions, that is what they are there for.
