Persistent Guest Cart

Customers have their experience stored in a 'session' but unless they are registered users that session is temporary and short-lived. Persistent Guest Cart preserves their shopping cart, view history and comparable products independently of the session so that customers may return to a site weeks or months later and continue their shopping.

If using compilation remember to deactivate it before installing extensions. Once installed, in the admin go to System > Configuration > Web > Guest Cookie Management and enable the features you desire.

Once purchased installation is super-simple with no unpacking or files to edit. Just upload the extension with Magento's Connect Manager.

saving billing and shipping information

Does this extension save billing/shipping information for the guest with shopping cart? so next time guest dont have to fill up the same information.
Asked by: pranjalshahr
Yes it does. If a customer enters just their postcode/zipcode in the shipping estimation area of cart page that will be remembered also. To explain in more detail; Magento already stores ALL carts because it cannot know if a customer is coming back or not, this includes every part of the order recorded before the actual order is placed. This extension saves an unguessable token in a cookie which is matched to a cart when the guest returns. No sensitive information is saved in cookies.

Can I clear out the cart after a successful order?

After installing this extension, it appears that when a guest checks out the items remain in their cart. Is this supposed to be a feature of the extension? Is there any way we can clear the cart out after successful checkout? I am a developer so even just a little direction could help. By the way, I do love this extension, it has done everything we needed to. Thanks!
Asked by: BVBAccelerate
Please disregard this question. The event 'customer_register_success' was inserted into this code which seemed to be causing the cart to not be emptied whenever a user registered during checkout or a registered user made their first purchase of the session. So, there is no issue with the extension, but do not try to raise the customer_register_success event in it. Thanks!

Cart "Mixup"

Did you encounter situations where the cart gets mixed up with different users? When I re-open the site, I see the last cart a different user has used even if its my first visit.

Difference with built-in persistent cart

Magento has a persistent shopping cart. If we enable this, the guest checkout is not functional. Does this override the built-in persistent cart or does this allow for persistent and guest checkout? Just a bit confused.
Asked by: jrudy

Are the cookies readable by JavaScript or are they HttpOnly?

I want to use the cookies in conjunction with some JavaScript code to construct a url that can be emailed to allow the shopper to resume their shopping on a different device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super like! Strongly recommend I run an online toys store for kids, out of India - We had been struggling with the issue wrt guest carts. As I reached out to clockwork geek, the description raised my hopes. We got great support during the installation process - which was pretty straightforward actually. I'd love to see clockworkgeek take this plugin further ahead, by making the guest information available in the abandoned carts report of Magento.
