Multiple Sites, One checkout/cart

We have a grand plan of creating a network of sites where all products and the cart will be driven off of the main site, but there are 3 other sites where users could potentially add products to their cart. The checkout process and order history/user login would all be housed at the main site. Our concern is that cross site scripting for domains and SSLs will completely render the sessions invalid. How do we have 1 site run the products, cart and user system, and display and share the cart session across 4 sites (all separate domains)

    Hi Jasper, how are you doing today?

    This is possible by Network Activating MarketPress. This is where MarketPress really gets to shine on Multisite. With this method of activation, you take MarketPress from being a shop-by-shop experience, and convert it into a network wide experience!

    You can do things like:

    – Have a single, global shopping cart, so visitors to your network can add items from any shop on the network, and check out in a single place

    – Charge a percentage of the profits on a sale, via the PayPal Chained Payments gateway

    – Control access to gateways & CSS themes inside of MarketPress

    You’ll find all the Multisite options in the Network Dashboard by going to:

    Settings -> Store Network

    You will get full details in our usage page, here:

    Please let us know if you have any confusion or if you are stuck at any point. We will be glad to help.

    Have a nice day. Cheers!

    After a bit more research, your product will not work for our need. We’re going to have multiple domains and your link above explains it perfectly.

    Due to cross-domain security concerns, the global cart is not compatible with domain mapped sub-sites.

    I appreciate your response.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.
