I apologize if this has already been answered somewhere, but I'm not sure what to search for to locate the answer..

my question is:

I'm trying to setup cs-cart in multi-store mode so that I can have electronics in 1 store and apparel in another, and so that the 2 stores have a different look/feel, but was wondering if it's possible to have a "collective cart".. i.e. put stuff in a cart on both sites, and have 1 checkout process?

thank you in advance,

Not out of the box. The storefronts can share "backend data" like customers, possibly products, categories, etc. If you want to use only one site's checkout process then it can get complicated if you don't want to have all products accessible in both sites. You may also run into some issues regarding sessions where adding to a cart in one store and trying to checkout in another won't work because the cart is stored in the user's session and the session is related to the site....

So I'd say the simple answer to your questions is no! :-)

I'll write my own if it doesn't exist, (and my client really feels the necessity to have that feature). The basic concept is to just have the session use a common name, and then you can pass session_id between stores..

Just be aware of the security risks you open up when you use a common name versus an ID that is unique to a site.

understood, shouldn't be too much of a risk in this scenario.. only 2 sites on the machine, plus both run on the same IP and one is technically an addon of the other..
