Disabling a Back Button and Double Posts

I’ve just run into an issue with a double post of data. The issue I’m having, is that I’m sending order information to NetBilling.

I’m guessing that the user had second thoughts, tried to hit the back button, and instead of backing out of the sale, he actually bought himself 2 of what he wanted none of.
