CartOrder or Order?

  • CartOrder or Order?
  • Hi,

    I'm just looking at creating orders through code with a view of adding product to a basket (or shopping cart) then checking out to complete the order.

    I'm just wondering which data structure to use to effectively create this functionality? What is the difference, should I be creating a CartOrder for the shopping cart stage, then an Order once checking out??

    Can anyone give me the pros and cons of using either of the two?



  • Hello,

    Orders are created form CartOrder, refer to this this documentation samples as reference. The general idea is there is a shopping cart which gets populated with products and forms CartOrder which is saved in the DB. The CartOrder is used to create Order upon checkout.

    For a complete sample of generating an order from CartOrder refer to this sample repository where Sitefinity team have supplied a widget called one page checkout.
