Hello. I am trying to build my own ecommerce module, and realizing there is more to this than meets the eye!
Not sure why I am so confused, because I spent way too much money online, but I guess everything looks easier from the outside looking in?!
Here is one of many things I don’t really understand…
If a person is shopping on my website, and they don’t have an account, how should I keep track of anything they want to buy?
I will use the term “Guest” for them.
I am trying to program a simple module that lets someone sign up for "premium content - I believe SitePoint has something like that too, right?
Originally I was going to do everything on one page, but then one of my offers requires people to pick out a free book and that requires navigating around my site and that’s when I realized I don’t know how to store what they originally selected, because it isn’t like I can store that info in a customer record in the database because, after all, they are merely a “Guest”.
Not sure if I am making any sense?
