    Hi Guys,

    To make shopping quick and easy I have the following on my buy now buttons.

    <input type="hidden" name="nocart">

    I do have some "thick" customers who need a bit of explanation as to how things work.

    Is there an option to display a message JUST ONCE the first time they put something in the cart.

    After that it would work the same as before.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Regards,

    Paul

    You need to build a cookie to do that and, as long as they accept cookies, you're ok, if not, it will be shown each time.

    Having trouble with a form or need one building?
    Fast turnaround, but I do charge :)

    Mal's Forms / Scripts and the syntax are here.

    I just came here to ask a question about nocart and you were on top so I am going to include my stuff here.

    I have some (maybe lots) of those thick customers also and was wondering if there is any feedback as to which way to make the cart is better, using nocart or going to the cart.

    Personally I think that having it where a lot of items can display at once and being able to just keep hitting BUY buttons then viewing the cart at once is the way to go. But I am looking feedback from others and since you have some thick customers as well Paul, maybe you have some insight on this.

    Hi GT,

    I think that would be perfectly acceptable, is "cookie building" relatively easy?

    Hi there,

    We sell lots and lots of small items, so some customers could have 25, 30 or more products on an order.

    In my opinion forcing them to view the cart every time they put something in the cart is not a good idea.

    Regards,
