Cart cookie value now includes key param


Action required

The cart cookie value for the Online Store now includes a key param. Not including the key param will result in the removal of buyer details and your updates will be applied to a newly generated cart. This behavior is applied retroactively to all themes.

This change is rolling out now, and enforcement will go into effect after a grace period of 1 week.

Example Format: ** * Before: value=c1-7a2abe82733a34e84aa472d57fb5c3c1 * After: value=c1-7a2abe82733a34e84aa472d57fb5c3c1?key=824bdj25mhg1242bdb385**

*Action Required: * Provide the complete cart cookie value which includes the key param as well as the cart token.

Ensure that theme code is free from hard-coded assumptions (ex. Using regex to identify a cart token) on the format and structure of the cart cookie. This is especially critical if the cart cookie is manually constructed.** If your theme utilizes the value set by default without modification, no action is needed. **
