I am working on a new website which has a custom shopping cart. I could not use the wix shopping cart, because my items are to big to be shipped using standard shipping methods, and I need to get a custom freight rate for each shipment. In the future I will try to integrate the freight rate with a 3rd party provider. For the initial stage thou, I want to create a shopping cart, and send an email to the company owner once the customer is ready to submit a quote request.
The problem I am having right now is how to display the shopping cart. I've created a session storage with all the items selected by the customer, but how do I display it? If i am selecting a table to display, I cannot have buttons or user inputs to allow the customer to modify the quantity from the line items. On the other end, it I am using a repeater, I cannot dynamically add rows to the repeater.
To my understanding, the repeater can be updated from a dataset, but my cart data is in storage session and not in dataset.
1. Is there a way to dynamically add rows to the repeater?
2. Can I put the cart information in a dataset, so the repeater will automatically update? How would I go about implementing that?
I appreciate any comment for my questions
