    Hello,

    We have a requirement where we have to create a shopping cart for the distribution channels like, for call center - one cart, POS - another cart. so what we have kept Distribution channel(of type ChannelRef) at shoppingCart resource level. is this correct designwise ? or else please suggest alternative solution.

    Thanks, 

    Meghana

    Hi Meghana

    I'm not sure that I understand your use case. Do you mean to say that a given customer may open multiple shopping carts? In that case, and if it's important for you to know in which channel the shopping cart was opened, yes you could add an attribute distributionChannel to your implementation of shopping cart.

    But perhaps you had in mind the different product offerings that can be made for sale in channels - in that case you already have an array of channel on ProductOffering, precisely for this purpose.

    Hope it helps
