Save Cart / Browser Session

Anyone know of a way to save browser sessions / shopping cart contents so that users can log on again and get access to a partly completed order after a browser restart?

Sorry if this is obvious but yes - youve guessed it; Im a newby.

Hi Pete,

WebAssist use to have a tutorial on saving the cart contents to recordsets and then developing the ability for a returning customer to access their uncompleted order. It seems to no longer be on their site.

It's not a terribly complex bit of functionality to develop, but is probably a bit above a newbe.

To give you starting points... you would utilize the STORE CART SUMMARY IN DATABASE and STORE CART DETAILS IN DATABASE server behaviors for eCart to save the cart details to recordsets.

You would use a SQL JOIN to combine the orders and orderdetails recordsets and filter them with a unique value (such as customerid) to bring up the cart details on a return visit from the customer.

There's more to it, but that's the basic way to get there.
