eCart does not empty after purchase success

eCart does not empty after purchase success

Hello I have ecart successfully connecting to Authorize.net and upon success the buyer is taken to the checkout_success.php to see their receipt.

Now here's the problem, the shopping cart does not empty afetr successful pruchase, so if the buy decides to purchse more items, all items from the previous purchase are still in the cart.

How do I empty the cart after a successful purchase?

Thank You
Stan Forrest

add the following code to your checkout_success.php 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();
?>

I don't mean to thread jack, but I was about to post because I was having the same issue. I added the code you posted and it does empty my cart, but it also goes immediately to the empty cart page without displaying the order receipt. If this will confuse the original issue, I can start a new thread. I just didn't know if it was a simple fix.

this code must be added at the very end of the page, after the closing </html> tag. If it is before the other code on the page, it will empty the cart before the anything is displayed.

I pasted the code after the /html tag and rather than go to the receipt page, it displays an empty cart. Do you have any idea what's causing this?

on what page did you paste the code?


It must be on the receipt page after the closing </html> tag. can you send a copy of the receipt page.
