I need a cart for products shipped immediately and a cart for delayed product shipping.
So in my single product page i need to add the product in one of this cart.
After, it would we 2 different orders.
In back office, i need to track my delayed shipping.
Please could your plug help me to do that ?
Hi David. This plugin will do everything you describe except provide information for you to track any sort of delayed orders with on the admin side. Information could be added manually (or through some other process) to the notes field during checkout, for instance. Let me know there’s anything else I can help with.
but if the cart with my delayed product create an order number, i think this order will be in the order list isn’t it ? so it could work…
I use Jupiter Theme and i don’t how i could have 2 carts in the interface
Yes, the orders would go through like any other, and time stamped like any other, regardless of whenever one decides to checkout with a cart. But there’s no additional information presented about any particular cart an order comes from, if that’s what you’re asking after.
Thanks, do yo mean i can’t track in back office with wich cart name order has been done ?
Do you know jupiter Theme https://themeforest.net/item/jupiter-multipurpose-responsive-theme/5177775?s_rank=1 ?
I don’t understand where the second cart will be ?
That’s correct. There’s no indication in the order record which cart a user happened to use to checkout with. The plugin provides a widget which you can put anywhere your theme allows. If you haven’t already, check out the demo: http://demo.burningmoth.com/wordpress/woocommerce-multiple-carts/ Short of showing configuration options, that demonstrates most of the functionality.
Pre Purchase questions
This plugin is exactly what i was looking for.. But have couple of questions.
1. Its says the no of carts per user is 10. Can we make it unlimited carts per user?
2. Can we categorize carts into groups or folders?
eg: Folder A will have carts A1, A2
Folder B will have carts B! , B2 ,B3
Use case : each folder will represent an interior design project, and each cart will be for different rooms like Living Room , Dining Room etc
Let me know if this is possible. If not, how can we customize it?
Hi Shreyabi. Thanks for asking. Answers:
1. There cannot currently be unlimited carts per user because the plugin uses a cookie to store information about the carts (not what’s in them) and cookies have an upper byte limit.
2. The carts cannot be categorized beyond custom labeling, no. And only one cart (the current cart) can check out at a time so a large number of carts, even grouped, may become difficult to manage. I think what might work better in your use case would be the ability to group items in one cart so that they can all be checked out at once. This plugin doesn’t do that but it’s an interesting idea.
The plugin doesn’t currently include hooks (they they are being considered); however, it does integrate with other WooCommerce and WordPress hooks that can be intercepted and functions in the plugin include inline documentation. If any functionality is phased out in the future, standard depreciation warnings will be issued in versions prior to their eventual removal.
Hope I could help. Let me know if any other questions or suggestions come up. Thanks again.
I want to buy your plugin, however please tell me is it possible to realise following scenario:
1. Products from Category A will always go to Cart A
2. Products from Category B will always go to Cart B
Thanks in advance
There’s currently no logic in place for the sort of functionality you describe, no.
However, I’m getting a lot of inquiries about this level of customization and am considering including hooks that would allow other plugins the necessary access to perform such operations.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
Hi i like your plugin idea and i like to ask if it is possible to put different products in different carts by default? The idea is that we like to conect that with wcvendors and each vendor has a seperate cart & checkoutprozess. Please let me know.
There’s currently no logic in place for administrators to program carts with specific parameters or conditions. It is entirely up to the customer how many carts they have and what gets put in them.
some questions please.
I want to use your plugin but in other way : the same one user get différents carts, not to buy products, just to stock them.
Maybe like a wishlist but just with possibility to modify quantities in cart.
I want to delete checkout, product price, cart totals, coupons, etc…
In fact I would like to keep only Shop and the 10 Carts.
Do you think is easily possible ?
This plugin won’t remove the features you mention though some other plugin might and this plugin should, in theory at least, work with it.
This plugin does include a Storage Bin mode which retains items/quantities in carts set to this mode after checkout.
I try and maybe I shall come back to you for the continuation.
Hello, I want to delete shopping cart and have only Storage Bin by default, is it possible ?
Sorry, other question : I see an update here but not display in wordpress. How can I do this update ? Thanks.
The update that was just released should fix the issue you’re experiencing whereby old items remain in the shopping cart or bin due to a recent update WooCommerce made.
Purchased Envato items like this one can be updated/installed using their Envato Market plugin. See http://envato.github.io/wp-envato-market/
Also, you should be able to download the zip file from the Code Canyon here, deactivate our WooCom Multi Carts plugin in WordPress, remove it and install the new version.
Let me know if you need further assistance. No problem.
Hi,thanks, update is ok.
Is it possible to delete switching between Storage Bin and Shopping Cart ?
I would like user have only Storage bin by default.
No option to make Storage Bin the default mode. We felt it was important for the carts to behave intuitively as carts do, emptying on checkout by default, to avoid confusion but to give customers the option to retain items for future purchases.
Hi, I use this plugin not in classical way.
Is it not possible to just inactivate function shopping cart without delete it ? Thanks.
Help me to understand what it is you’re doing and what you expect to happen. You can switch a cart to a bin by selecting the Storage Bin option from the menu or widget. And select the then Shopping Cart option to switch it back when you want.
User create boxes (carts) and put items inside. He increases or decreases the number of objects in every use.
I need that objects stay always in the box without disappearing even for a long time.
Since the update, objects in storage bin disappear when we disconnect.
I’m unable to reproduce the issue you’re describing in testing.
A storage bin (safe icon) should retain the same items and quantities after checkout. Exceptions to this might be if an item is out of stock or otherwise becomes non-purchasable in which case WooCommerce will remove it from the cart.
Do the carts and the items disappear after you log out and leave the site or just the items?
What version of WooCommerce are you using?
Hi, just Items disappears from current cart after log out, (only in storage bin, not in shopping cart). Cart is always here but empty. All without checkout. Woocommerce is 3.2.1. Thanks
Okay. So the issue is that if the current cart is in storage bin mode, the user logs out and then logs back in before the WooCom session expires then the cart will be empty. I’m uploading an update 1.11.2 that should fix the issue. Thanks for reporting it. Apologies for the time it’s taken to resolve.
When current cart (storage bin) is displayed on screen and user log out only.
It seems when cart is not displayed on screen at the time of logout, he don’t disappear. Thanks.
Yes. I was able to replicate the issue and update 1.11.2 that was just uploaded should fix.
Thank you for update. All seems ok now.
Hi. I need to develop a site in which the registered customer should be able to save multiple “draft orders”. The user would add products to the cart, and then could finish or not finish the checkout. This “draft order” would remain stored in DB, and the user could see a list of orders that he hasn’t checkout yet.
I wonder if this can be achieved with your plugin, as a “draft order” is actually a shopping cart.
The scenario you describe can be achieved with this plugin, yes. The registered user could see a list of carts depending on the options the admin chooses.
If you haven’t already, check out the online demo. Let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks, just another question: can the site administrator see that list of carts of each customer?
No. Only the registered user can see their own carts.
I have purchased the plugin for the purposes having the user to be able to have multiple carts. The business has multiple offices, and we want to be able to have multiple staff access the one user for there location.
It seems to work until we add a product to the cart, and the cart put other items in, that are from a completely different session. I’ve tested this on multiple browsers and mobile, some users have restrictions on what products they can add. When the issue happened, they had a cart with items they should have been able too, so it was almost, cross user interference. Is this to do with session handling and cookies?
How can it be set, so when a new session with a fresh cookie is logged into the account, that person has then a unique cart? and doesn’t get someone elses cart when they attempt to add products.
This doesn’t happen every time – but it’s often enough to break the entire concept and go back to the drawing board.
Under settings, make sure the Link Carts per User option is unchecked. When it’s checked everyone who logs into an account uses the same cart(s) for that account.
Because the carts have been linked, users will probably still be sharing carts after this option is unchecked. They can either delete these carts via the UI (if it’s enabled) or delete cookies for the site and new carts will automatically be created.
Let me know if there’s anything else I can help you with.
I initially found that unlink checkbox and had that unchecked prior to the testing.
After a ‘lovely’ phone call, my client has completely abandoned the project, due to this issue.
I will seek a refund but thank you for all your efforts.
Unless there is a way to overcome this – bullet proof?
I’m sorry to hear your client pulled the plug on your project.
If the Link Carts per User option is unchecked, cookies cleared and users logging into the same account continue to share carts somehow then another plugin may be somehow enforcing the single account user id or PHP is is in some way configured to prevent error back tracing the plugin uses to detect and intercept WooCommerce.
If there are any errors being generated, I’d be interested in seeing them.
Ok thank you for the clarity.
I will give this another test, testing ie, chrome and iphone safari with all the cookies cleared. One thing that could be interfering, is the auto login link plugin, a generated link acts as the authentication.
Perhaps its enforcing the single account user id – which can you go into a bit more detail on what that means?
What I don’t understand is, the user they used had products in their cart that we’re setup to be restricted. which could mean the order was done on the same computer but even then, that would be cross-account interference. if that makes sense
The plugin works by providing a bogus user id through WordPress to WooCommerce for certain functions. If, for some reason, that feature isn’t working then the single cart for the user account would be used and multiple carts wouldn’t work.
If that bogus user id is being passed at the time the restriction functionality is testing whether or not the current user can purchase a product then that might explain how restricted items are showing up in a cart. But someone would still have to add them normally like any other item. Nothing should just be appearing on it’s own.
Hi, is it possible to have multiple carts for a scenario where you have multiple vendors on one site? So for example my website has several different vendors offering products and there is a separate cart for every vendor?
A shopper on your site can choose to arrange their carts the way you describe but there’s no means available through the plugin to enforce that preference for anyone else.
I have a client who is looking to create a WooCommerce store. However, he needs his payments to be split or diverted into different bank accounts based on what is being purchased. Authorize.net informed us we’d need multiple carts to handle this so that the carts can have different Merchant IDs associated with each cart. Would this plugin be a good solution for this scenario? At time, a single buyer might want to purchase items that would belong id the different carts…and we’d like them to checkout just once….is that possible?
Hi Ski Girl.
What it sounds like you’re looking for is a plugin that indicates some sort scheme on a per product basis that calculates and charges various percentages of the total to separate merchant accounts during checkout. This plugin does not do that. It’s an organizational tool for customers to be able group items in different shopping carts.
I would recommend charging to a single merchant account and then transferring from that account to others on a regular basis based on some statistical analysis of what’s been ordered within a certain time frame. That could be done manually or automated, keep the checkout simple and quick for the customer, be far easier than programming this behavior into WooCommerce and could better account for canceled orders and other potential failures.
I like your plugin – pre sales questions, if you don’t mind.
1. Can customers name their carts?
2. Can customers share their carts?
3. Can customers make simple one click order with their carts?
4. Will no stock items be reflected in their carts?
Thanks for a good plugin.
Hi Cheefah. To answer your questions:
1. Yes, customers can name their carts.
2. No, customers cannot share carts.
3, 4. Carts function as they would normally w/o this plugin installed.
I’d like to place the plugin’s drop down menu that appears in the top admin bar in the nav menu. How could I do that?
The plugin includes a widget that could be placed in a sidebar like a menu.
If you’re asking how to include the list of carts in an existing menu amongst other menu items, that would currently require custom programming. All the functionality in the plugin has inline documentation and there are basic functions that can be called to get the list of carts, cart items, etc.
How about a shortcode to insert it anywhere?
Hi Ron. A carts widget is included. Currently no shortcodes.
I have a pre-sale question for you. My standard Wordpress/WooCommerce site is working great, but my goal is to create affiliates who have access to certain pages and products on my site. Will your plugin allow me to create a separate cart, so I can choose which products are available for my affiliates?
Also, do you know of a way to prevent my site’s main header from appearing on the separate cart, so my affiliate customers can’t navigate to other parts of my site? Thanks in advance for your help and feedback!
This plugin provides no means for determining what items are and aren’t available to customers and it does not generate separate shopping cart pages. All that is still managed by WooCommerce.
You may be looking for a plugin that allows you to restrict post types based on custom rules. And you may need a custom theme developed to adjust the appearance of your site to those restrictions if one does not already exist. Or, depending on your situation, you might consider a multisite setup.
I have a pre-sales question, can you setup a cart for all users to the site, then designate that a certain product can only be added to a specific cart? E.g. product1 can only be added to cart2? All other products can be added to cart1.
Hi Deon. No, only customers can set their own carts.
Pre sale question…
Can multiple carts have multiple emails? So that if customer A, from company A, orders something, the order details get send to their email, and if Customer B orders from Company A, it gets send the their (different) email?
Hi Tom. A different address, email and phone number can be set per cart and this information will be used during checkout.
Hey, thanks for a great plugin.
