Predefined Carts possible ?

Hey there,

Are predefined carts possible with foxycart?

We would like to provide a URL to users where after clicking this one, they are provided with a already filled cart (especially also a coupon code) and are already on the checkout page.
e.g. like this link here:
https://fileee.foxycart.com/checkout?fcsid=juqenpbk3nfjm5gn42ujul9ue4

I wanted to confirm if this can work or we just need to provide the long link where we manually put the products and coupon code inside the url (cart?name=product1&price....etc.)

    Hi @fileee,

    Interesting idea / scenario.

    While this is not currently configurable within your FoxyCart, you could create a short link / redirect on your side: example.com/WantWanthttps://fileee.foxycart.com/cart?cart=checkout&empty=true&name=Product&price=99&category=DiscountedCategory.

    Pros:
    - Full, direct control on your site
    - Friendly, branded URL

    Cons:
    If this approach doesn't work for you, please let us know.

    Having said that, your illustration with a direct session link would also work, though only for 12 hours. (We have plans to extend the session duration, but no ETA right now.)

    Does this answer your question? If not, or if you have more, just let us know!
  • I guess we will then just create a bitly link or so and use the full url for that.

    That answers my question, thank you very much.
