User Guide | Getting Cart Summary Session Data

When the flexi cart library is first loaded, an array is automatically created that is setup to match the carts default settings, this data is then stored in the browsers session. All items and settings that are then later added and altered within the cart are updated to the carts session data.

The data within the carts session can then be accessed and in many cases, formatted and customised using the large range of functions that are available from the lite and standard libraries.
