Replace Existing Cart

What is the best way to replace an existing cart?

If you mean replacing a cart that has already been implemented by another software, you would want to basically remove all the add to cart buttons generated by the other cart. Then you would want to replace those add to cart buttons with the ones generated by eCart and then generated the eCart display manager on a cart page. And then run through the eCart Wizard to set up the checkout pages.

If you mean replace a cart that is generated by eCart, you would just apply the display manager to a different page and modify the add to cart buttons to point to that page.

Thank you. Yes, I'm replacing an older version of an eCart. In addition to updating the products I also have to change the payment gateway.

Would it be easier to just start a new cart? If so, what pages/code should I delete?

Thanks.

Yes, it would most likely be easier just to start a new cart. I would recommend making a backup of the site files before making any modifications. Which version of eCart and which payment gateway were you using when you implemented this store? You would most likely need to delete the WA_eCart directory, any pages with the add to cart button applied, the page that you use for your cart display and the pages generated by eCart. The pages would be confirm, checkout_success, checkout_failure, checkout and maybe some other pages depending on the payment gateway.

Thank you for your response.

Not sure which version of eCart. We were using PayPal and would like to use another which supports Authorize.Net emulation.

I think I should be deleting those files that begin with pp* (pp_cancel, pp_checkout_success, pp_checkout_failure and pp_confirm)?

Thanks again.

Yes, you would want to delete the files that start with pp_ as well in that case. If it is a payment gateway that is just an emulation of Authorize.net, we can't guarantee that it will work. You will need to work with that gateway emulation company to get it to work, since it isn't one that we support.
