Guys (gals), I have a problem with the emptying of the shopping cart.

The thing is, I multitask. while I'm shopping on CCL I also am doing other things - answering emails, engaging with folks on Facebook, perhaps going to dinner with my family when I am only halfway done with a buy from a large store, but more than once I have had all the books I wanted to buy just disappear from my cart when I came back to continue buying.

I like to do large buys. I like to buy hundreds of books at once, I like to spend hundreds of dollars at once, but the current system makes this hard to do because on CCL, I have to devote my entire evening to doing nothing other than making a single buy. For folks who want to take their time making a large buy, and also have a life, the quick timeout and emptying of the shopping cart is a problem.

I also understand that, the way I think this works, is that when something is in someone's cart, no one else can buy it. If my assumption is correct, that means there cannot be an unlimited cart, and I absolutely get that - someone could stick a book in their cart and never pay, forever, and that book would just not show up for any of the other folks who actually want to buy it and pay for it, right now. And that would suck.

What I am hoping for, what I am pleading for, is that CCL can empty the cart after a period of time, but will also give buyers the option to "restore your last cart" if the time limit has run out.

This would mean that if a lookie-loo buyer was inactive for 30 minutes the books would not still be tied up forever, but it would also mean that a genuine buyer who either got distracted or had another obligation while he was buying would not have to start again from scratch, he could click a button to "restore cart" and finish a larger buy.

I understand that sellers cannot have their books pulled off the market while a potential buyer is indecisive as to whether they actually want to pull the trigger or not, no one should be able to fill a shopping cart and then just leave it in the middle of the aisle. I understand that it is important that CCL should be able to put items from an inactive shopping cart back on the spinner racks after it appears that the cart has been abandoned.

Just give me a "restore cart" button so I do not have to start from the beginning, and pour through thousands of books again if I am interrupted in the middle of a buy.

ComicsMD was going to have a big order this evening, hundreds of dollars, but my cousin emailed me about how my Great Aunt is perhaps about to leave us, so I stopped thinking about this big buy, had conversations with my cousins, told stories back and forth about our beloved Beamer, and came back to an empty cart.

There has got to be a way to protect sellers against BS buyers and also protect buyers who are combing through thousands of books, only to lose many hours of searching because of a family dinner, a PTA meeting, an unexpected family emergency.

If you need to empty my cart? Go for it. But know that some of us - all of us, really - do more than just buy comics.

Give me a button that lets me restore my cart (obviously, minus any issues that have been sold and paid for in my absence).

To ComicsMD? Sorry dude. I wanted to spend a lot of money, but it is late, I am tired, and I am now half-drunk and my cart is now empty.

I cannot start over, not tonight. But I am hoping that CCL can fix that.

Find a way to alleviate the cart dump, give us a "restore" button. Sellers, buyers, and CCL will all benefit, everyone would win.

One makeshift solution to the cart dump problem is to highlight all the items in your cart (highlight the items only, nothing above or below), Ctrl+C or right-click/Copy, then paste the contents into a spreadsheet. (When pasting you should use Paste Special and paste values only, otherwise you'll get the images as well.) The data populates the spreadsheet neatly and is easily sortable. Then you can keep track of what you had in your cart and save yourself the search time when you go back. I can also price comics more easily in a spreadsheet and compare store prices to each other and to guide values.

If my directions aren't clear I can go step-by-step if anyone is interested.

I do the same thing, I copy & past the contents of my cart to a blank page on my desktop. It's not going to change anytime soon so work with it as best you can. It's pretty quick to fill a cart if you have a list of books prepared.

One of the best ideas I've seen yet.
