How your shopping cart works...
Isn't it amazing that you can put items in your cart, leave ConnectingThreads.com, then come back a few days later and the items are still there?
We keep track of the items in your cart using cookies. When you place an item in your Cart, we place a small file on your hard drive (called a cookie) to remember what you have placed in your Cart.
This method works wonderfully if you always browse our site from the same computer. But, many people browse websites not just from home, but also from work, school, or the library. If you started shopping from home, but then browsed our site again from work, you will notice that the items you put in your Cart at home don't show up when you are at work. This is because all of that Cart information is stored on the hard drive of your computer at home.
To ensure that you see the items you add to your cart from any computer or browser you use, be sure to log in to your Connecting Threads account. Once logged in, any and all items that you add will remain visible on any device you are logged in on.
It doesn't matter at what point you log in to our Web site. You can add things to your Cart, log in, and we will then save the contents of your Cart. As you make changes to your Cart (by adding, modifying quantities, or deleting items) we will automatically save the changes to your customer record information. The same holds true if you come back to our site from another computer. You can start shopping, then log in. Once you log in, we can add the items you just added to Cart to the "saved" Cart you had from the other computer.
Remember, unless you log in to our site, our computers don't know who you are, and won't be able to attach the contents of your Cart to your customer record.
