View Full Version : Options for shopping carts

07-28-2007, 02:02 AM
I am working on a website for someone and they want customers to be able to choose options such as color, size, etc. when they are buying a product. The only problem is they are using Yahoo and Yahoo's shopping cart which does not have an 'options' field. I am wanting to add in a drop-down menu which would allow them to choose the necessary options and would then send the information to the owner of the store so they can fill the order. How can I do this? I have done several drop-down menus before, but never trying to integrate it into a shopping cart and send it to someone after the user goes through checkout.

Please help

I'm not sure how Yahoo's shopping cart works, but you could try to use PHP Sessions. The items that the user selects could go into a PHP session, then after checkout (if Yahoo allows for redirecting to custom page), send an email with the session variables and that's it. Again, without personally knowing more about Yahoo's shopping cart, I really can't be of much help.

Hope this helps nonetheless.
