Can a customer save their shopping cart and return later to purchase the items in their cart? If not, is there an add on or plugin that would allow them to do this?

Update: This feature is now available in eStore:
eStore doesn’t have an option like this. Maybe I will add an option for this.August 3, 2011 at 5:09 am #35083hnbraceMember
Thank you for considering to add this. I have had a few people ask if they could do this or make a wishlist so they didn’t have to go through the whole site again to find what they wanted every time.August 11, 2011 at 8:25 pm #35084JaneMember
Yes…this would be really nice! Add my vote!October 24, 2011 at 2:57 pm #35085waltergMember
I really NEED this feature, I purchased the emember package as well (but I can’t get it to install), does that allow it? I am using NextGen and have a LOT of pictures for people to look at and purchase. This is a necessary feature!!!!! Any update?October 25, 2011 at 1:45 am #35086
I started working on this feature but I don’t have an update yet.February 18, 2012 at 5:21 am #35087
You can now enable the save and retrieve cart feature from the eStore settings menu by checking the “Enable Save and Retrieve Cart Feature” option.
You can place the following shortcode on a post, page or sidebar which will show a save and retrieve shopping cart section to allow your customers to save the current shopping cart or retrieve a previously saved cart.

Thanks again, that’s a nice feature.April 30, 2012 at 11:33 pm #35089goldstriknParticipant
Ok, I have placed the shortcode indicated, and I do see new icons save and retrieve, but they don’t do anything. It only has the link to the shopping cart with an anchor [http://mydomain.com/shopping-cart/#] as an example. What does it do? How does it store this info? Does the visitor have to be a subscriber/member in order to save and retrieve the cart? This is a bit obscure as to the function. Please explain.

Nice feature. Just want to know how the customer is supposed to remember their cart code. There must be a way to change it that I don’t see.
My first test cart code is 51c2bb5a5ec97.
I would never be able to recall that code, let alone enter it later without typos!
Thanks!June 20, 2013 at 2:58 pm #35094PamelaMember
Oh geez! Did that seem unfriendly? I didn’t mean it too be! But on re-reading myself it seems so. Sorry for my lack of professionalism there.
I have to edit better!

Hi Pam, The cart ID that you get is something you just save somewhere in your computer or write it down on a piece of paper (It is like a receipt ID). That cart ID has to be unique so it gets automatically generated.
