PHP Shopping Cart Tutorial – Step By Step Guide!

simple-php-mysql-shopping-cart-tutorial

Previously, we learned how to create, read, update and delete database records on our PHP OOP CRUD tutorial. Today, we will put that knowledge to work by building a simple PHP shopping cart application.

This is good news for you. If you do not want to use cookies or sessions for storing cart items, you can use your MySQL or MariaDB database.

Will there be any advantage if we use this approach?

One advantage I can think of is, the user can view his cart items in different computers or devices.

If we will compare it to using PHP sessions or cookies, we can say the following:

  • PHP sessions can maintains the cart items only when the browser is opened. It means a user will lose his cart items once he closes his browser or turns off his computer.
  • PHP cookies can maintain the cart items on one device or computer, event if the user turn his computer on and off.

4.0 Prepare the database

4.1 Database Design

Our database name is “shop_cart_mysql_1”, and we will have three (3) tables.
simple-php-mysql-shopping-cart-tutorial database design

4.2 Create MySQL Tables

You may run the following SQL queries on our “shop_cart_mysql_1” database.

Create the products table. This table will hold products record.

CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `products` (
  `id` int(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
  `name` varchar(512) NOT NULL,
  `description` text NOT NULL,
  `price` decimal(10,2) NOT NULL,
  `created` datetime NOT NULL,
  `modified` timestamp NOT NULL DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP,
  PRIMARY KEY (`id`)
) ENGINE=MyISAM  DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1 COMMENT='products that can be added to cart' AUTO_INCREMENT=41 ;

Create product_images table. This table will hold images related to product.

CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `product_images` (
  `id` int(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
  `product_id` int(11) NOT NULL,
  `name` varchar(512) NOT NULL,
  `created` datetime NOT NULL,
  `modified` timestamp NOT NULL DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP ON UPDATE CURRENT_TIMESTAMP,
  PRIMARY KEY (`id`)
) ENGINE=MyISAM  DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8 COMMENT='image files related to a product' AUTO_INCREMENT=105 ;

Create cart_items table. This table will hold cart items of our user.

CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `cart_items` (
  `id` int(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
  `product_id` int(11) NOT NULL,
  `quantity` double NOT NULL,
  `user_id` int(11) NOT NULL,
  `created` datetime NOT NULL,
  `modified` timestamp NOT NULL DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP ON UPDATE CURRENT_TIMESTAMP,
  PRIMARY KEY (`id`)
) ENGINE=MyISAM  DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8 AUTO_INCREMENT=40 ;

The products and product_images table will not fully work without the sample data and images in the “/uploads/images/” directory.

You’ll have to download the SQL and image files. Use the download button below. What will you get? A ZIP file with shop_cart_mysql_1.sql and 28 image files inside (1.30 MB).

Once downloaded, you may import the SQL file using PhpMyAdmin. Put the image files in “/uploads/images/” directory. You are now one step closer to the output shown in section 2.1 above.

4.3 Database connection file

Create “config” folder and inside it, create “database.php” file with the following code.

<?php
// used to get mysql database connection
class Database{

	// specify your own database credentials
	private $host = "localhost";
	private $db_name = "shop_cart_mysql_1";
	private $username = "root";
	private $password = "";
	public $conn;

	// get the database connection
	public function getConnection(){

		$this->conn = null;

		try{
			$this->conn = new PDO("mysql:host=" . $this->host . ";dbname=" . $this->db_name, $this->username, $this->password);
		}catch(PDOException $exception){
			echo "Connection error: " . $exception->getMessage();
		}

		return $this->conn;
	}

}
?>

5.0 Prepare the user interface

5.1 Download jQuery and Bootstrap

Download jQuery library here. Create “libs” folder. Inside it, create “js” folder. Put jQuery library inside “js” folder.

Download Bootstrap framework here. Inside “libs” folder, create “css” folder. Put bootstrap library inside “css” folder.

5.2 Create layout files

Layout files are needed so we can use the same header and footer code.

Create “layout_head.php” with the following code.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>

    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">

    <title><?php echo isset($page_title) ? $page_title : "The Code of a Ninja"; ?></title>

    <!-- Bootstrap CSS -->
	<link href="libs/css/bootstrap/dist/css/bootstrap.css" rel="stylesheet" media="screen">

    <!-- HTML5 Shiv and Respond.js IE8 support of HTML5 elements and media queries -->
    <!-- WARNING: Respond.js doesn't work if you view the page via file:// -->
    <!--[if lt IE 9]>
    <script src="https://oss.maxcdn.com/libs/html5shiv/3.7.0/html5shiv.js"></script>
    <script src="https://oss.maxcdn.com/libs/respond.js/1.4.2/respond.min.js"></script>
    <![endif]-->

    <!-- custom css for users -->
    <link href="libs/css/user.css" rel="stylesheet" media="screen">

</head>
<body>

	<?php include 'navigation.php'; ?>

    <!-- container -->
    <div class="container">
        <div class="row">

        <div class="col-md-12">
            <div class="page-header">
                <h1><?php echo isset($page_title) ? $page_title : "The Code of a Ninja"; ?></h1>
            </div>
        </div>

Create “layout_foot.php” with the following code.

		</div>
		<!-- /row -->

	</div>
	<!-- /container -->

<!-- jQuery library -->
<script src="libs/js/jquery.js"></script>

<!-- bootstrap JavaScript -->
<script src="libs/css/bootstrap/dist/js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>
<script src="libs/css/bootstrap/docs-assets/js/holder.js"></script>

</body>
</html>

5.3 Create navigation.php

The “layout_head.php” will not work without the navigation.php file. Create that file and put the following code inside.

<!-- navbar -->
<div class="navbar navbar-default navbar-static-top" role="navigation">
	<div class="container">

		<div class="navbar-header">
			<button type="button" class="navbar-toggle" data-toggle="collapse" data-target=".navbar-collapse">
			<span class="sr-only">Toggle navigation</span>
			<span class="icon-bar"></span>
			<span class="icon-bar"></span>
			<span class="icon-bar"></span>
			</button>
			<a class="navbar-brand" href="products.php">XYZ Webstore</a>
		</div>

		<div class="navbar-collapse collapse">
			<ul class="nav navbar-nav">

				<!-- highlight if $page_title has 'Products' word. -->
				<li <?php echo strpos($page_title, "Product")!==false ? "class='active'" : ""; ?>>
					<a href="products.php">Products</a>
				</li>

				<li <?php echo $page_title=="Cart" ? "class='active'" : ""; ?> >
					<a href="cart.php">
						<!--later, we'll put a PHP code here that will count items in the cart -->
						Cart <span class="badge" id="comparison-count">0</span>
					</a>
				</li>
			</ul>

		</div><!--/.nav-collapse -->

	</div>
</div>
<!-- /navbar -->

5.4 Add Custom CSS

Inside “libs/css” directory, create user.css with the following code inside it.

.text-align-center{ text-align:center; }
.f-w-b{ font-weight:bold; }
.display-none{ display:none; }

.w-5-pct{ width:5%; }
.w-10-pct{ width:10%; }

.stock-text {
    font-weight: bold;
    color: #008a00;
}

.stock-text-red{
    font-weight:bold;
    color:#b12704;
}

.product-detail {
    font-weight: bold;
    margin: 0 0 5px 0;
}

.blueimp-gallery>.prev, .blueimp-gallery>.next{ border:none; }

.update-quantity-form {
    width: 150px;
    float: left;
    margin: 0 10px 0 0;
}

.cart-row {
    border-bottom: thin solid #f1f1f1;
    overflow: hidden;
    width: 100%;
    padding: 20px 0 20px 0;
}

.product-link{
    color:#000000;

.product-link:hover{
    color:#000000;
    text-decoration:none;
}

.product-img-thumb {
    margin: 0 0 10px 0;
    width: 100%;
    cursor: pointer;
}

6.0 Display Products

6.1 Create products.php

Now we are going to start displaying products from the database. Create products.php with the following basic code.

<?php
// set page title
$page_title="Products";

// page header html
include 'layout_head.php';

// contents will be here 

// layout footer code
include 'layout_foot.php';
?>

6.2 Include PHP Classes

Put the following code after the opening “php” tag of the previous section.

// connect to database
include 'config/database.php';

// include objects
include_once "objects/product.php";
include_once "objects/product_image.php";
include_once "objects/cart_item.php";

6.3 Create “product” object file

Create “objects” folder. Inside it, create product.php file with the following code.

<?php
// 'product' object
class Product{

	// database connection and table name
	private $conn;
	private $table_name="products";

	// object properties
	public $id;
	public $name;
	public $price;
	public $description;
	public $category_id;
	public $category_name;
	public $timestamp;

	// constructor
	public function __construct($db){
		$this->conn = $db;
	}
}

6.4 Create “product image” object file

Create product_image.php file inside “objects” folder.

<?php
// 'product image' object
class ProductImage{

	// database connection and table name
	private $conn;
	private $table_name = "product_images";

	// object properties
	public $id;
	public $product_id;
	public $name;
	public $timestamp;

	// constructor
	public function __construct($db){
		$this->conn = $db;
	}
}

6.5 Create “cart item” object file

Create cart_item.php file inside “objects” folder.

<?php
// 'cart item' object
class CartItem{

    // database connection and table name
    private $conn;
    private $table_name = "cart_items";

    // object properties
    public $id;
    public $product_id;
    public $quantity;
    public $user_id;
    public $created;
    public $modified;

	// constructor
    public function __construct($db){
        $this->conn = $db;
    }
}

6.6 Connect to the database

Put the following code after the code on the previous section.

// get database connection
$database = new Database();
$db = $database->getConnection();

// initialize objects
$product = new Product($db);
$product_image = new ProductImage($db);
$cart_item = new CartItem($db);

6.7 Initialize action and pagination

Put the following code after the code on the previous section.

// to prevent undefined index notice
$action = isset($_GET['action']) ? $_GET['action'] : "";

// for pagination purposes
$page = isset($_GET['page']) ? $_GET['page'] : 1; // page is the current page, if there's nothing set, default is page 1
$records_per_page = 6; // set records or rows of data per page
$from_record_num = ($records_per_page * $page) - $records_per_page; // calculate for the query LIMIT clause

6.8 Request data from the database

Request data from the database. Put the following code after the code on the previous section.

// read all products in the database
$stmt=$product->read($from_record_num, $records_per_page);

// count number of retrieved products
$num = $stmt->rowCount();

// if products retrieved were more than zero
if($num>0){
	// needed for paging
	$page_url="products.php?";
	$total_rows=$product->count();

	// show products
	include_once "read_products_template.php";
}

// tell the user if there's no products in the database
else{
	echo "<div class='col-md-12'>";
    	echo "<div class='alert alert-danger'>No products found.</div>";
	echo "</div>";
}

6.9 Add “read” and “count” methods

The previous section will not work without the following code inside “objects/product.php” object file.

// read all products
function read($from_record_num, $records_per_page){

	// select all products query
	$query = "SELECT
				id, name, description, price 
			FROM
				" . $this->table_name . "
			ORDER BY
				created DESC
			LIMIT
				?, ?";

	// prepare query statement
	$stmt = $this->conn->prepare( $query );

	// bind limit clause variables
	$stmt->bindParam(1, $from_record_num, PDO::PARAM_INT);
	$stmt->bindParam(2, $records_per_page, PDO::PARAM_INT);

	// execute query
	$stmt->execute();

	// return values
	return $stmt;
}

// used for paging products
public function count(){

	// query to count all product records
	$query = "SELECT count(*) FROM " . $this->table_name;

	// prepare query statement
	$stmt = $this->conn->prepare( $query );

	// execute query
	$stmt->execute();

	// get row value
	$rows = $stmt->fetch(PDO::FETCH_NUM);

	// return count
	return $rows[0];
}

6.10 Template to display products

The previous section won’t work without “read_products_template.php”, so create that file and put the following code.

<?php 
while($row = $stmt->fetch(PDO::FETCH_ASSOC)){
	extract($row);

	// creating box
	echo "<div class='col-md-4 m-b-20px'>";

		// product id for javascript access
		echo "<div class='product-id display-none'>{$id}</div>";

		echo "<a href='product.php?id={$id}' class='product-link'>";
			// select and show first product image
			$product_image->product_id=$id;
			$stmt_product_image=$product_image->readFirst();

			while ($row_product_image = $stmt_product_image->fetch(PDO::FETCH_ASSOC)){
				echo "<div class='m-b-10px'>";
					echo "<img src='uploads/images/{$row_product_image['name']}' class='w-100-pct' />";
				echo "</div>";
			}

			// product name
			echo "<div class='product-name m-b-10px'>{$name}</div>";
		echo "</a>";

		// product price and category name
			echo "<div class='m-b-10px'>";
				echo "&#36;" . number_format($price, 2, '.', ',');
			echo "</div>";

			// add to cart button
			echo "<div class='m-b-10px'>";
				// cart item settings
				$cart_item->user_id=1; // we default to a user with ID "1" for now
				$cart_item->product_id=$id;

				// if product was already added in the cart
				if($cart_item->exists()){
					echo "<a href='cart.php' class='btn btn-success w-100-pct'>";
						echo "Update Cart";
					echo "</a>";
				}else{
					echo "<a href='add_to_cart.php?id={$id}&page={$page}' class='btn btn-primary w-100-pct'>Add to Cart</a>";
				}
			echo "</div>";



	echo "</div>";
}

include_once "paging.php";
?>

6.11 Add “readFirst()” method

Add “readFirst()” method in “objects/product_image.php” file. The previous section will not work without it.

// read the first product image related to a product
function readFirst(){

	// select query
	$query = "SELECT id, product_id, name
			FROM " . $this->table_name . "
			WHERE product_id = ?
			ORDER BY name DESC
			LIMIT 0, 1";

	// prepare query statement
	$stmt = $this->conn->prepare( $query );

	// sanitize
	$this->id=htmlspecialchars(strip_tags($this->id));

	// bind prodcut id variable
	$stmt->bindParam(1, $this->product_id);

	// execute query
	$stmt->execute();

	// return values
	return $stmt;
}

6.12 Add “exists()” method

Open /objects/cart_item.php and add the following method. This method checks if an item is already added to cart or not.

// check if a cart item exists
public function exists(){

    // query to count existing cart item
    $query = "SELECT count(*) FROM " . $this->table_name . " WHERE product_id=:product_id AND user_id=:user_id";

    // prepare query statement
    $stmt = $this->conn->prepare( $query );

    // sanitize
	$this->product_id=htmlspecialchars(strip_tags($this->product_id));
    $this->user_id=htmlspecialchars(strip_tags($this->user_id));

	// bind category id variable
	$stmt->bindParam(":product_id", $this->product_id);
    $stmt->bindParam(":user_id", $this->user_id);

    // execute query
    $stmt->execute();

    // get row value
    $rows = $stmt->fetch(PDO::FETCH_NUM);

    // return
    if($rows[0]>0){
        return true;
    }

    return false;
}

6.13 Create pagination file

The previous section won’t work without the paging.php file. Create paging.php with the following code.

<?php
echo "<div class='col-md-12'>";

    echo "<ul class='pagination m-b-20px m-t-0px'>";

    // button for first page
    if($page>1){
        echo "<li><a href='{$page_url}' title='Go to the first page.'>";
            echo "First Page";
        echo "</a></li>";
    }

    $total_pages = ceil($total_rows / $records_per_page);

    // range of links to show
    $range = 2;

    // display links to 'range of pages' around 'current page'
    $initial_num = $page - $range;
    $condition_limit_num = ($page + $range)  + 1;

    for ($x=$initial_num; $x<$condition_limit_num; $x++) {

        // be sure '$x is greater than 0' AND 'less than or equal to the $total_pages'
        if (($x > 0) && ($x <= $total_pages)) {

            // current page
            if ($x == $page) {
                echo "<li class='active'><a href=\"#\">$x <span class=\"sr-only\">(current)</span></a></li>";
            }

            // not current page
            else {
                echo "<li><a href='{$page_url}page=$x'>$x</a></li>";
            }
        }
    }

    // button for last page
    if($page<$total_pages){
        echo "<li>";
            echo "<a href='" . $page_url . "page={$total_pages}' title='Last page is {$total_pages}.'>";

7.0 How to count items in the cart?

7.1 Display count in navigation bar

Open navigation.php and change this line:

<!--later, we'll put a PHP code here that will count items in the cart -->
Cart <span class="badge" id="comparison-count">0</span>

to this:

<a href="cart.php">
	<?php
	// count products in cart
	$cart_item->user_id=1; // default to user with ID "1" for now
	$cart_count=$cart_item->count();
	?>
	Cart <span class="badge" id="comparison-count"><?php echo $cart_count; ?></span>
</a>

7.2 Cart item count() method

Open /objects/cart_item.php and put the count() method.

// count user's items in the cart
public function count(){

    // query to count existing cart item
    $query = "SELECT count(*) FROM " . $this->table_name . " WHERE user_id=:user_id";

    // prepare query statement
    $stmt = $this->conn->prepare( $query );

    // sanitize
    $this->user_id=htmlspecialchars(strip_tags($this->user_id));

    // bind category id variable
    $stmt->bindParam(":user_id", $this->user_id);

    // execute query
    $stmt->execute();

    // get row value
    $rows = $stmt->fetch(PDO::FETCH_NUM);

    // return
    return $rows[0];
}

8.0 How to add to cart?

8.1 Make “add to cart” button work

Put the following code before ending “body” tag of layout_foot.php file.

<script>
$(document).ready(function(){
	// add to cart button listener
	$('.add-to-cart-form').on('submit', function(){

		// info is in the table / single product layout
		var id = $(this).find('.product-id').text();
		var quantity = $(this).find('.cart-quantity').val();

		// redirect to add_to_cart.php, with parameter values to process the request
		window.location.href = "add_to_cart.php?id=" + id + "&quantity=" + quantity;
		return false;
	});
});
</script>

8.2 Create add_to_cart.php

Create add_to_cart.php file because when ‘Add to cart’ button was clicked, that file with the following code inside will be executed.

<?php
// parameters
$product_id = isset($_GET['id']) ? $_GET['id'] : "";
$quantity = isset($_GET['quantity']) ? $_GET['quantity'] : 1;

// make quantity a minimum of 1
$quantity=$quantity<=0 ? 1 : $quantity;

// connect to database
include 'config/database.php';

// include object
include_once "objects/cart_item.php";

// get database connection
$database = new Database();
$db = $database->getConnection();

// initialize objects
$cart_item = new CartItem($db);

// set cart item values
$cart_item->user_id=1; // we default to '1' because we do not have logged in user
$cart_item->product_id=$product_id;
$cart_item->quantity=$quantity;

// check if the item is in the cart, if it is, do not add
if($cart_item->exists()){
	// redirect to product list and tell the user it was added to cart
	header("Location: cart.php?action=exists");
}

// else, add the item to cart
else{
	// add to cart
	if($cart_item->create()){
		// redirect to product list and tell the user it was added to cart
		header("Location: product.php?id={$product_id}&action=added");
	}else{
		header("Location: product.php?id={$product_id}&action=unable_to_add");
	}
}
?>

8.3 Put create() method

The previous section will not work without the following code inside our /objects/cart_item.php file.

// create cart item record
function create(){

    // to get times-tamp for 'created' field
    $this->created=date('Y-m-d H:i:s');

    // query to insert cart item record
    $query = "INSERT INTO
                " . $this->table_name . "
            SET
				product_id = :product_id,
				quantity = :quantity,
				user_id = :user_id,
				created = :created";

	// prepare query statement
    $stmt = $this->conn->prepare($query);

	// sanitize
	$this->product_id=htmlspecialchars(strip_tags($this->product_id));
	$this->quantity=htmlspecialchars(strip_tags($this->quantity));
	$this->user_id=htmlspecialchars(strip_tags($this->user_id));

	// bind values
    $stmt->bindParam(":product_id", $this->product_id);
    $stmt->bindParam(":quantity", $this->quantity);
    $stmt->bindParam(":user_id", $this->user_id);
	$stmt->bindParam(":created", $this->created);

	// execute query
    if($stmt->execute()){
        return true;
    }

    return false;
}

8.4 Create cart.php

Create cart.php with the following basic code.

<?php
// connect to database
include 'config/database.php';

// include objects
include_once "objects/product.php";
include_once "objects/product_image.php";
include_once "objects/cart_item.php";

// get database connection
$database = new Database();
$db = $database->getConnection();

// initialize objects
$product = new Product($db);
$product_image = new ProductImage($db);
$cart_item = new CartItem($db);

// set page title
$page_title="Cart";

// include page header html
include 'layout_head.php';

// contents will be here 

// layout footer 
include 'layout_foot.php';
?>

8.5 Display message based on action

We’ll display message on cart.php based on given action. Put the following code after “include ‘layout_head.php’;” of the previous section.

$action = isset($_GET['action']) ? $_GET['action'] : "";

echo "<div class='col-md-12'>";
	if($action=='removed'){
		echo "<div class='alert alert-info'>";
			echo "Product was removed from your cart!";
		echo "</div>";
	}

	else if($action=='quantity_updated'){
		echo "<div class='alert alert-info'>";
			echo "Product quantity was updated!";
		echo "</div>";
	}

	else if($action=='exists'){
		echo "<div class='alert alert-info'>";
			echo "Product already exists in your cart!";
		echo "</div>";
	}

	else if($action=='cart_emptied'){
		echo "<div class='alert alert-info'>";
			echo "Cart was emptied.";
		echo "</div>";
	}

	else if($action=='updated'){
		echo "<div class='alert alert-info'>";
			echo "Quantity was updated.";
		echo "</div>";
	}

	else if($action=='unable_to_update'){
		echo "<div class='alert alert-danger'>";
			echo "Unable to update quantity.";
		echo "</div>";
	}
echo "</div>";

8.6 Display cart items

Put the following code based on the code of the previous section.

// $cart_count variable is initialized in navigation.php
if($cart_count>0){

	$cart_item->user_id="1";
	$stmt=$cart_item->read();

	$total=0;
	$item_count=0;

	while ($row = $stmt->fetch(PDO::FETCH_ASSOC)){
        extract($row);

		$sub_total=$price*$quantity;

		echo "<div class='cart-row'>";
			echo "<div class='col-md-8'>";
				// product name
				echo "<div class='product-name m-b-10px'>";
					echo "<h4>{$name}</h4>";
				echo "</div>";

				// update quantity
				echo "<form class='update-quantity-form'>";
					echo "<div class='product-id' style='display:none;'>{$id}</div>";
					echo "<div class='input-group'>";
						echo "<input type='number' name='quantity' value='{$quantity}' class='form-control cart-quantity' min='1' />";
							echo "<span class='input-group-btn'>";
								echo "<button class='btn btn-default update-quantity' type='submit'>Update</button>";
							echo "</span>";
					echo "</div>";
				echo "</form>";

				// delete from cart
				echo "<a href='remove_from_cart.php?id={$id}' class='btn btn-default'>";
					echo "Delete";
				echo "</a>";
			echo "</div>";

			echo "<div class='col-md-4'>";
				echo "<h4>&#36;" . number_format($price, 2, '.', ',') . "</h4>";
			echo "</div>";
		echo "</div>";

		$item_count += $quantity;
		$total+=$sub_total;
	}

	echo "<div class='col-md-8'></div>";
	echo "<div class='col-md-4'>";
		echo "<div class='cart-row'>";
			echo "<h4 class='m-b-10px'>Total ({$item_count} items)</h4>";
			echo "<h4>&#36;" . number_format($total, 2, '.', ',') . "</h4>";
	        echo "<a href='checkout.php' class='btn btn-success m-b-10px'>";
	        	echo "<span class='glyphicon glyphicon-shopping-cart'></span> Proceed to Checkout";
	        echo "</a>";
		echo "</div>";
	echo "</div>";

}

else{
	echo "<div class='col-md-12'>";
		echo "<div class='alert alert-danger'>";
			echo "No products found in your cart!";
		echo "</div>";
	echo "</div>";
}

8.7 Put read() method in cart item object

Open /objects/cart_item.php and add the following code. The previous section will not work without it. This read() method will query the database and return the products added to the cart.

// read items in the cart
public function read(){

	$query="SELECT p.id, p.name, p.price, ci.quantity, ci.quantity * p.price AS subtotal
			FROM " . $this->table_name . " ci
				LEFT JOIN products p
					ON ci.product_id = p.id
			WHERE ci.user_id=:user_id";

	// prepare query statement
	$stmt = $this->conn->prepare($query);

	// sanitize
	$this->user_id=htmlspecialchars(strip_tags($this->user_id));

	// bind value
	$stmt->bindParam(":user_id", $this->user_id, PDO::PARAM_INT);

	// execute query
	$stmt->execute();

	// return values
	return $stmt;
}

8.8 Read products by IDs

The previous section will not work without the following “readByIds()” method inside “objects/product.php” file.

// read all product based on product ids included in the $ids variable
// reference http://stackoverflow.com/a/10722827/827418
public function readByIds($ids){

	$ids_arr = str_repeat('?,', count($ids) - 1) . '?';

	// query to select products
	$query = "SELECT id, name, price FROM " . $this->table_name . " WHERE id IN ({$ids_arr}) ORDER BY name";

	// prepare query statement
	$stmt = $this->conn->prepare($query);

	// execute query
	$stmt->execute($ids);

	// return values from database
	return $stmt;
}

9.0 How to update cart?

9.1 Update cart quantity with JavaScript

We have the ‘update’ button on cart.php file. When that button was clicked, a javascript code is triggered. Put the following code inside “$(document).ready(function(){” of layout_foot.php file.

// update quantity button listener
$('.update-quantity-form').on('submit', function(){

	// get basic information for updating the cart
	var id = $(this).find('.product-id').text();
	var quantity = $(this).find('.cart-quantity').val();

	// redirect to update_quantity.php, with parameter values to process the request
	window.location.href = "update_quantity.php?id=" + id + "&quantity=" + quantity;
	return false;
});

9.2 PHP script to update cart

The previous section will not work without the update_quantity.php file with the following code inside it.

<?php

$product_id = isset($_GET['id']) ? $_GET['id'] : 1;
$quantity = isset($_GET['quantity']) ? $_GET['quantity'] : "";

// make quantity a minimum of 1
$quantity=$quantity<=0 ? 1 : $quantity;

// connect to database
include 'config/database.php';

// include object
include_once "objects/cart_item.php";

// get database connection
$database = new Database();
$db = $database->getConnection();

// initialize objects
$cart_item = new CartItem($db);

// set cart item values
$cart_item->user_id=1; // we default to '1' because we do not have logged in user
$cart_item->product_id=$product_id;
$cart_item->quantity=$quantity;

// add to cart
if($cart_item->update()){
	// redirect to product list and tell the user it was added to cart
	header("Location: cart.php?action=updated");
}else{
	header("Location: cart.php?action=unable_to_update");
}
?>

9.3 Update cart item in database

The previous section will not work without the following update() method inside /objects/cart_item.php file.

            SET quantity=:quantity
            WHERE product_id=:product_id AND user_id=:user_id";

    // prepare query statement
    $stmt = $this->conn->prepare($query);

    // sanitize
    $this->quantity=htmlspecialchars(strip_tags($this->quantity));
    $this->product_id=htmlspecialchars(strip_tags($this->product_id));
    $this->user_id=htmlspecialchars(strip_tags($this->user_id));

    // bind values
    $stmt->bindParam(":quantity", $this->quantity);
    $stmt->bindParam(":product_id", $this->product_id);
    $stmt->bindParam(":user_id", $this->user_id);

    // execute query
    if($stmt->execute()){
        return true;
    }

    return false;
}

9.4 How to remove product from cart?

We have the ‘remove’ button on cart.php file. When that button was clicked, the remove_from_cart.php file with the following code will be executed.

<?php
// get the product id
$product_id = isset($_GET['id']) ? $_GET['id'] : "";

// connect to database
include 'config/database.php';

// include object
include_once "objects/cart_item.php";

// get database connection
$database = new Database();
$db = $database->getConnection();

// initialize objects
$cart_item = new CartItem($db);

// remove cart item from database
$cart_item->user_id=1; // we default to '1' because we do not have logged in user
$cart_item->product_id=$product_id;

public function delete(){

	// delete query
	$query = "DELETE FROM " . $this->table_name . " WHERE product_id=:product_id AND user_id=:user_id";
	$stmt = $this->conn->prepare($query);

	// sanitize
	$this->product_id=htmlspecialchars(strip_tags($this->product_id));
	$this->user_id=htmlspecialchars(strip_tags($this->user_id));

	// bind ids
	$stmt->bindParam(":product_id", $this->product_id);
	$stmt->bindParam(":user_id", $this->user_id);

	if($stmt->execute()){
		return true;
	}

    return false;
}

9.6 Create the checkout page

The checkout page looks like the cart page but the items cannot be updated or removed. It just like the summary of orders. Create checkout.php with the following code.

<?php
// connect to database
include 'config/database.php';

// include objects
include_once "objects/product.php";
include_once "objects/product_image.php";
include_once "objects/cart_item.php";

// get database connection
$database = new Database();
$db = $database->getConnection();

// initialize objects
$product = new Product($db);
$product_image = new ProductImage($db);
$cart_item = new CartItem($db);

// set page title
$page_title="Checkout";

// include page header html
include 'layout_head.php';

// $cart_count variable is initialized in navigation.php
if($cart_count>0){

	$cart_item->user_id="1";

				echo "<div class='product-name m-b-10px'><h4>{$name}</h4></div>";
                echo $quantity>1 ? "<div>{$quantity} items</div>" : "<div>{$quantity} item</div>";

			echo "</div>";

			echo "<div class='col-md-4'>";
				echo "<h4>&#36;" . number_format($price, 2, '.', ',') . "</h4>";
			echo "</div>";
		echo "</div>";

		$item_count += $quantity;
		$total+=$sub_total;
	}

	echo "<div class='col-md-12 text-align-center'>";
		echo "<div class='cart-row'>";
            if($item_count>1){
    			echo "<h4 class='m-b-10px'>Total ({$item_count} items)</h4>";
            }else{
                echo "<h4 class='m-b-10px'>Total ({$item_count} item)</h4>";
            }

		echo "<div class='alert alert-danger'>";
			echo "No products found in your cart!";
		echo "</div>";
	echo "</div>";
}

include 'layout_foot.php';
?>

9.7 Create place_order.php

We’ll use this file to show a “thank you” message and remove all items in the cart.

<?php
// include classes
include_once "config/database.php";
include_once "objects/cart_item.php";

// get database connection
$database = new Database();
$db = $database->getConnection();

// initialize objects
$cart_item = new CartItem($db);

// remove all cart item by user, from database
$cart_item->user_id=1; // we default to '1' because we do not have logged in user
$cart_item->deleteByUser();

// set page title
$page_title="Thank You!";

// include page header HTML
include_once 'layout_head.php';

echo "<div class='col-md-12'>";
	// tell the user order has been placed

	$stmt = $this->conn->prepare($query);

	// sanitize
    $this->user_id=htmlspecialchars(strip_tags($this->user_id));

    // bind id
    $stmt->bindParam(":user_id", $this->user_id);

	echo "<div class='product-detail'>Product description:</div>";
	echo "<div class='m-b-10px'>";
		// make html
		$page_description = htmlspecialchars_decode(htmlspecialchars_decode($product->description));

		// show to user
		echo $page_description;
	echo "</div>";

	echo "<div class='product-detail'>Product category:</div>";
	echo "<div class='m-b-10px'>{$product->category_name}</div>";

echo "</div>";

10.10 Render ‘Cart’ button

Now we will display ‘Add to cart’ button if the product is not yet added to cart. Else, we will display ‘update cart’ button.

echo "<div class='col-md-2'>";
	// cart item settings
	$cart_item->user_id=1; // we default to a user with ID "1" for now
	$cart_item->product_id=$id;

	// if product was already added in the cart
	if($cart_item->exists()){
		echo "<div class='m-b-10px'>This product is already in your cart.</div>";
		echo "<a href='cart.php' class='btn btn-success w-100-pct'>";
			echo "Update Cart";
		echo "</a>";
	}

	// if product was not added to the cart yet
	else{

		echo "<form class='add-to-cart-form'>";
			// product id
			echo "<div class='product-id display-none'>{$id}</div>";

			// select quantity
			echo "<div class='m-b-10px f-w-b'>Quantity:</div>";
			echo "<input type='number' class='form-control m-b-10px cart-quantity' value='1' min='1' />";

			// enable add to cart button
			echo "<button style='width:100%;' type='submit' class='btn btn-primary add-to-cart m-b-10px'>";
				echo "<span class='glyphicon glyphicon-shopping-cart'></span> Add to cart";
			echo "</button>";

		echo "</form>";
	}
echo "</div>";
