Removing all active carts



Is there any way to remove all current carts programmatically? Not using direct SQL querys
Maybe I can use the "remove old carts" job...

Hey Juan,

Here is post that might help you:

And here is a screenshot of the job that you can just replicate and make small tweaks as suggested by Quan in the post above. Also, SQL query is not recommended.

 Hi Juan,

I have created a scheduled job for you to delete the active carts. 

  • Load all carts using IOrderSearchService and pass the filter option (OrderSearchFilter) in the FindCarts method if you want to load the carts for a specific market, customer, date range, etc.
  • Use IOrderRepository and delete the cart entry.
    DisplayName = "Scheduled Delete Active Carts Job",
    Description = "Delete all carts",
    GUID = "84EBDA48-A71C-4BF9-8B39-0A0B3525EB0E",
    Restartable = true,
    SortIndex = -1000)]
public class ScheduledDeleteActiveCartsJab : ScheduledJobBase
    private bool _stopSignaled;
    private readonly IOrderSearchService _orderSearchService;
    private readonly IOrderRepository _orderRepository;

    public ScheduledDeleteActiveCartsJab( IOrderRepository orderRepository, IOrderSearchService orderSearchService)
        _orderRepository = orderRepository;
        _orderSearchService = orderSearchService;
        IsStoppable = true;

    /// <summary>
    /// Called when a user clicks on Stop for a manually started job, or when ASP.NET shuts down.
    /// </summary>
    public override void Stop()
        _stopSignaled = true;

    /// <summary>
    /// Called when a scheduled job executes
    /// </summary>
    public override string Execute()
        OnStatusChanged($"Starting execution of {this.GetType()}");
        _stopSignaled = this.DeleteActiveCarts();
        return $"All cart deleted successfully !!";

    private bool DeleteActiveCarts()
        var orderSearchFilter = new OrderSearchFilter();
        var carts= _orderSearchService.FindCarts(orderSearchFilter);

        foreach (var cart in carts.Orders)

        this.OnStatusChanged($"Total {carts.TotalRecords} carts deleted successfully !!");
        return true;

Update code and used IOrderSearchService instead of ICartSearchService. Thanks Quan!

It's important to load carts by batch. If you have hundred of thousands of carts or even more, loading them in one go is to probably not a good idea. You can do batch loading with a do-while loop, and use RecordsToRetrieve  to control how many carts you want to load in one batch.

Also ICartSearchService is an internal interface which should be avoided

I have already suggested to use 'OrderSearchFilter' to load a specific date range carts instead of loading all carts at one time.
If ICartSearchService is an internal interface then which interface we used to load all customer carts?

IOrderSearchService is the public one and it supports searching for ICart
