Use cart without checkout ability
« on: July 04, 2022, 11:44:05 am »
Hey guys,

so I was wondering if anyone could help me a bit. I need something special. I need to have the cart ability but I want to prevent the checkout (payment, address etc.). Point here is that this site will be a supporting site for the main (which has a checkout) and it will server as a catalogue but I still need the ability for visitors to add products to cart. When they are finished they will click some button and will be redirected to main eshop where the products will autofill the cart but thats not important here. So I just need to make sure that noone is actually able to finish purchase on this supporting website. Do you have any idea how to do that? Should I just CSS hide stuff in cart and replace finish button with something else?

Basically - if I remove the last button in checkout - is there still a way for a visitor to complete purchase any other way? (some hidden page or something?)

Please let me know. Thank you!

EDIT: Joomla is 4.1 and VM is 4.

i think favorite / wish list plugin should do what you need if the user can share it.
Perhaps this extension https://extensions.virtuemart.net/product/products/wish-list-for-virtuemart-detail

very easy:

remove all section from cart (only rows with products contain) and add custom button with all information about products in cart to post url.
On your second shop catch this post and finish order.
