Hi finnstone,

On your first <cfinvoke specify the returnvariable

<cfinvoke component="api/cartservice" method="newCart" returnvariable="anOID">

On your call use that variable.

<cfinvokeargument name="cartoid" value="#anOID#">

Did you know you can do this.

<cfinvoke component="api/cartservice" method="addCartItem" cartoid="#anOID#" itemoid="#url.addProdID#" quantity="1">

All on one line.

Regards
Plucka
