Thanks for the Save & Retrieve cart feature – very cool… although I do have a question:
How do you display the Save & Retrieve cart feature when the user hasn’t selected any items? For example, if they swap computer, browsers or even just clear out their browser cache.
At the moment, I can see the Shopping Cart widget but not the Save & Retrieve functionality… :$ – where does the user add their Shopping Cart ID in this case?
I’ve read the other thread (https://support.tipsandtricks-hq.com/forums/topic/is-it-possible-for-a-customer-to-save-their-shopping-cart-for-later) and know there’s a shortcode to display it ([wp_eStore_save_retrieve_cart]).
In theory, I could add the shortcode to a Text Widget underneath the cart… but the problem here is that after the user then starts to add items, they then get the “Save & Retrieve” in the Shopping Cart Widget *as well as* the Text Widget…
You see the dilemma…
Anyway, not a major biggie, but would be nice to be able to enable this option *especially* when the cart is empty.
Thanks in advance.

You can add another widget titled “Save or Retrieve Cart” and just use the save and retrieve cart shortcode there. This will keep it separate from the main shopping cart. You could also place the retrieve cart shortcode on a separate page and then on your site’s header or sidebar have a link to that page saying something like “Retrieve Cart Here”.June 30, 2012 at 12:24 pm #46622ZainParticipant
Yes, those options could be done – however, it would still be nice to have it on the widget when the cart is empty. Mainly as this is the place where most regular customers would look for items related to their shopping carts. Also, it makes more sense to use the feature when the cart is empty, rather than when customers are starting to load up their carts (after all, isn’t that it’s purpose?).
Ideally, having a way of not having duplicated save and retrieve icons (as mentioned in the first post) would be useful.
Anyway, aside from this, it’s a nice feature…
