Does WooCommerce Use Cookies? Multiorders

Many different websites use cookies in order to be more convenient. Cookies store the information that allows each user to re-enter the information they were using before. For example, the browser remembers your login information, so you don’t have to fill it in each time you go back to the site. That is why many e-commerce platforms use them. In this article, we’ll take a look if and when does WooCommerce use cookies?

Does WooCommerce use cookies?

 

As mentioned before, the main purpose of cookies is to make your browsing experience more efficient. In e-commerce, it is really important to keep some of the user’s information, because without it the shopping could last about five times longer! Imagine once you add something to your cart and go to the next page, that product disappears. Moreover, you will need to log in each time, you want to visit that shop. By now it should be clear that WooCommerce uses cookies. In fact, WooCommerce uses three types of cookies.

 

WooCommerce cookies

 

1. woocommerce_cart_hash

The WooCommerce Cart Hash cookie contains information about the shopping cart. In other words, it memorizes what you added to your cart. Also, it helps WooCommerce know when the cart data changes.

 

2. woocommerce_items_in_cart

The WooCommerce Item in cart cookie has the same value as the WooCommerce Cart Hash. Both of them keep the cart information and allows you to properly use the cart feature. Without them, you would not be able to add multiple products to your cart or make any changes.

 

3. wp_woocommerce_session_

This cookie contains a unique code for each customer. The WooCommerce session cookie knows where to find the cart data in the database for each customer. In other words, without it, shopping in WooCommerce wouldn’t be as effective and functional as it is now.
