Sample Flows

This article shares some possible use cases your app could support, as well as an example flow that could support each use case. You're certainly not limited to these use cases, but they can be a helpful jumping off point as you plan your app's implementation.

Listen for a cart created by a site visitor

  1. A site visitor adds an item to the cart.
  2. Using the Cart Created Webhook, listen for an event when a cart is created.

Save the newly created cart's ID (entityId field in the above webhook's payload) for use in the flow below.

Update a cart

If a store owner wants to update a specific cart with a buyer note and remove a coupon, they can follow this basic flow.

  1. Pass the cart's ID (entityId field in the above webhook's payload) to the Update Cart endpoint to add a buyer note to the cart:

    Copy
    1
    curl -X PATCH \
    2
    'https://www.wixapis.com/ecom/v1/carts/33d99986-63b0-4f0e-a549-33bda4bef756' \
    3
    -H 'Authorization: <AUTH>' \
    4
    -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
    5
    -d '{
    6
    "cartInfo": {
    7
    "id": "33d99986-63b0-4f0e-a549-33bda4bef756",
    8
    "buyerNote": "Please ship ASAP."
    9
    }
    10
    }'

    The response is the cart object containing the newly added buyer note.

  2. Use Remove Coupon to remove a coupon from a cart.

    Copy
    1
    curl -X POST \
    2
    'https://www.wixapis.com/ecom/v1/carts/33d99986-63b0-4f0e-a549-33bda4bef756/remove-coupon' \

Stores to eCommerce Cart Conversion Table

To help with migration from the Stores Cart API to the eCommerce Cart and Checkout APIs, refer to the table below for field changes in name and/or location.

Certain information that used to be held in the Cart, is now kept in the Checkout object. These fields are marked in the table below, with more information available in the Stores Cart to eCommerce Checkout Conversion Table.

The address object used in the eCommerce APIs is slightly different to the one used in the Stores APIs. For more details, refer to the address object conversion table.

Fields marked with an asterisk (*) signify little to no change in semantics or service location.

Any attempt to retrieve it via the Get Cart endpoint will yield a 404 error code. In the Stores Cart API, the cart's status would change to COMPLETE after a purchase.

Address Object Conversion Table

The eCommerce APIs use a different address object. Notably, fields related to contact information have been moved to an adjacent contactDetails object (for example, in order.shippingInfo).

To help with conversion and migration, refer to the table below to check which fields have changed and how.

Note: in the eCommerce API, the buyer's email is only held in the buyerInfo field in the eCommerce Order object.
