Update cart

The Update Cart PUT request will replace the current cart of the session. To update the Cart while the Checkout is rendered on the screen, a call to the Checkout Client API's suspend() function shall be performed before calling the Checkout Backend API.

Suspend and resume flow

javascript client side flow to update Cart
// Suspend the Checkout, showing a spinner...
// ... then call the backend API to set the new Cart
// ... and finally resume the Checkout after the backend call is completed to update the Checkout

Once in suspend mode, the Checkout cart can be updated by sending in a new cart to the Checkout API from your backend as the following code shows:

Update cart request
