How it works

  • When a new session is started on the web site one of the following happens:
    • If a cookie was submitted with a CartID that has a status of 0 then that shopping cart is assigned to the current session
    • Otherwise, a corresponding shopping cart is created with a status of 0 (New Cart) and the CartID is added to the broswers cookies
  • When a new order is placed the following happens:
    • The cart status is set to 13 (Finalized Begun But Not Complete)
    • A new sales order is created that matches the shopping cart
    • The cart status is set to 1 (Finalized)
