Hello starview,

you can use table to store cart information if you do not want to store cart in sessions.

did not get you exactly how you want it to be.

Please look at following links to get basic knowledge of shopping carts



Hope this will help you.

Thank you.

That part of the question has me scratching my head.  Why would you put a huge, artificially restrictive stumbling block in your path. Or maybe a better question would be why wouldn't you use the same tools that everyone else uses?  If we can understand where you're coming from on that point, maybe we can help more.  For example, you can effectively write your own state handler using cookies and your data base.  But that is a lot of work and the PHP session handler already does most of that for you.

in addition, there are many good shopping carts already built -- all you have to do is configure one.  If it were up to me, I would choose Magento.

Tell us a little more about your specific needs and maybe we can help more.

This what I am looking for, using table to store cart information in and not store cart in sessions. php/mysql learning and building a shopping cart. I know some php/mysql and I know there are shopping carts all ready out there, but I feel I can learn better this way and I might not every use the cart after I am done with the tutorial
 I hpe this gives you more of and idea of what I am looking, it does not have to be a video and I would rather it not be onlline.

If you are just wanting to learn, buy this book.  It teaches the principles you need to know.

It's now in its fifth printing and has been a permanent part of my professional library since Edition One.  Very readable with great examples and a downloadable code library that you can copy and modify for your own applications.
