You say that the page type is Order but your template is called OrderPage. Make sure that the names are all aligned as this is how Silverstripe automagically selects the correct template.

class OrderPage extends Page {

class OrderPage_Controller extends Page_Controller {


In the CMS make sure that in the Behavior tab you have set the page to be an OrderPage.

Also, it looks like your template is not a full HTML document but is a fragment. In this case you want to store it in templates/Layout/ and insert $Layout into your main template to insert your Order Page layout at that point (rather than $Content).
