Fix the Shopping Cart

Postby rabbit » Feb 17th, '06, 17:36

If you've never bought tea for adagia teas then the only way to create an account is by buying tea, the problem is that when adding teas and whatnot to your shopping cart BEFORE you've created an account anybody and everybody can see and change the items in your cart, and I've experimented with a friend by having him add items and then i told him what he added (from another computer that I couldn't see). My concern about this is that if I were to go to buy the teas somebody might add or delete a selection without my noticing and then I would be paying MORE than I intended, or end up not recieving the teas that I wanted. Somebody should def. fix this problem.

might be good to drop a line straight to Ilya (at Adagio dot com)
to make sure he sees it first thing

good question... here's how the Adagio (and most other e-commerce) site works. When you first come onto Adagio.com, you get assigned a random 32 digit binhex session ID number. As you travel around the site adding and removing items from your cart, this SID number is how the server knows who you are and is able to maintains your session. Now here's the part where it gets interesting... if you send your URL to a friend and include your SID number, then the both of you are sharing the same session (i.e. same shopping cart). Any item you add will also be added to your friend's cart.

But even if you accidentally give someone your SID numbers, all you need to do is clear your cookies and the session is automatically killed and a new one assigned.

Do you remember the link you followed? Perhaps the SID number was embedded.

Anyone else ever experience anything like this?

I think I gave you the url to one of the teas I was about to get. And that shopping cart was probably mine.

The part about you seeing someone elses shopping cart a day or two after? That was probably mine, and you just never cleared your cookies, so you still had the same shopping cart as me.

This just happened to me, last night and today. I went to adagio.com [I did not follow a link, I have it bookmarked], I was already signed in to my account, and I saw items in the shopping cart that I had not added. Last night I removed the items in the cart. Today there is another item in my cart that I didn't add.

This is the first time something like this has happened to me. I did make an order last night, prior to the first mystery shopping cart items incident.

**edit: I cleared my cookies [which logged my out] and the items in the shopping cart went away, then l logged back in and they were still gone, so I guess the problem is fixed. It's still a little odd that this happens, though.**

Happened to me also last night. I couldn't log out of adagio either so I shut down Firefox and restarted. Prior to that I had someone elses's account history? Very weird.
