storing cart contents
I am finishing up a site for a client where anyone placing items in a cart will have logged in, so I always have a customer id available. The client would like to do two things:
1) track abandoned carts and
2) resurrect an incomplete cart when the customer logouts and logs back in.
I know that I can serialize the eCart object and store it in a database, but I'm unclear on how to use that to recreate the cart.
