Cart not emptying after the checkout process completed

Cart not emptying after the checkout process completed

I am in testing mode for ecart 5.
I successfully created some basic pages, and the process works.
The database is populated and an email sent.
The problem is that the cart is not emptying so that a customer can start a new order.

I assume either the confirm or the confirm-success pages should be clearing the cart.

Is there any code that I should be looking for?

Any help would be appreciated.

Well depends on wich checkout process you have used, on some sites i had to make a custom checkout for bank deposits so i made a page that after the user registers the deposit i send him to a thank you page with a message about the days it takes to confirm the order but on this page i have a hidden code to empty the order session and the cart, this is what i do on the top of the page in code view i add manually

php:
<?php
//WA eCart Include
require_once("WA_eCart/CartName_PHP.php");
?>
<?php 
require_once("Connections/myconection.php"); ?>
<?php
$cartName
->GetContent();
?>

and at the end just before the </body>

i add

php:
<?php 
    $cartName
->ClearCart();
    unset(
$_SESSION['OrderSessionName']);
    
?>



Let us know if it was helpfull :p

Clears Cart (sort of)

Thanks for the tip but I must be doing something wrong.

I am using the checkout process that was created with the eCart 5 wizard. There is no payment gateway, this is just a TakeOut order process for a customer to collect and pay at the shop.

So I am putting the code you suggest in the checkout_success.php page which is basically the 'Thank you for your order' message.

From your post I assume I had to add a session which I did with a name ClearCartSession.
This is what I added before the doctype:

<?php
//WA eCart Include
require_once("../WA_eCart/CustomerCart_PHP.php");
?>
<?php require_once('../Connections/testDB.php'); ?>
<?php
$CustomerCart->GetContent();
?>
<?php
if (!session_id()) session_start();
if(!isset($_SESSION["ClearCartSession"])) {
$_SESSION["ClearCartSession"] = "";
}
?>

I am using a template so I put the unset part after the body but before the closing html tag:

<?php
$CustomerCart->ClearCart();
unset($_SESSION['ClearCartSession']);
?>
</html>

On testing the process, the order gets added to the database, the email is sent and the cart appears empty. So far so good.

HOWEVER,

If I create another order, everything processes as expected but the previous order is replaced in the database with the new order instead of being added as a new order.

Any idea what I am doing wrong?

add the following code to the checkout success page after the </html> tag:

php:
<?php

// Initialize the session.
// If you are using session_name("something"), don't forget it now!
session_start();

// Unset all of the session variables.
$_SESSION = array();

// If it's desired to kill the session, also delete the session cookie.
// Note: This will destroy the session, and not just the session data!
if (ini_get("session.use_cookies")) {
    
$params session_get_cookie_params();
    
setcookie(session_name(), ''time() - 42000,
        
$params["path"], $params["domain"],
        
$params["secure"], $params["httponly"]
    );
}

// Finally, destroy the session.
session_destroy();
?>

ok i think i know why, and also the jason one is a good choice but it can also kill if the user is logged on to the site, if you have memebrs registered to the site that solution will log them off also ok the link that i had


unset($_SESSION['ClearCartSession']);

i meant sorry for that unset($_SESSION['ORDERSession']); it to unset the session of the order remeber when creating the sumary order you have to add there a value for the order to be created it would be that one and it should work now if you replace it sorry my poor english so it would be check your page where you have the order summary it would be auto created by the wizard

it would have
Trigger:
Database
Conection
table
Order Id
Store As: this is the one if it says order or sessionorder or what ever name you would add that name to the unset session, example if it says Order the unset should be like this unset($_SESSION['Order]); suppose it says Sumary then it should be unset($_SESSION['Sumary']);

Thanks so much.
I found that the session name was 'CustomerCart_OrderID'

So I changed the session and unset session to that name on the success page and everything works as expected.

<?php
if (!session_id()) session_start();
if(!isset($_SESSION["CustomerCart_OrderID"])) {
$_SESSION["CustomerCart_OrderID"] = "";
}
?>

<?php
$CustomerCart->ClearCart();
unset($_SESSION['CustomerCart_OrderID']);
?>

I appreciate the time you spent helping.

Cheers, Paul
