I am trying to build a simple tool that lets me add products directly to the shopping cart from an external CMS site using the REST API. Currently, I am trying to leverage the guest-carts to minimize security risk.

It looks like I need to first generate a new guest cart id:

POST /rest/default/V1/guest-carts

Then I add products to that cart:

POST /rest/default/V1/guest-carts/<generated cart id>/items {
    "cartItem": {
        "sku": "<item_sku>",
        "qty": 1

Which returns:

{ "message": "No such entity with %fieldName = %fieldValue",
  "parameters": { "fieldName": "cartId", "fieldValue": null } }

If I add cartId to the first part I now get:

Next Exception: Message: Property "CartId" does not have corresponding setter in class "Magento\Quote\Api\Data\CartItemInterface". in <magento_root>/vendor/magento/framework/Webapi/ErrorProcessor.php:195
Stack trace:

#5 <magento_root>/index.php(39): Magento\Framework\App\Bootstrap->run(Object(Magento\Framework\App\Http))
#6 {main} [] []

What's going on? How do I use the guest cart REST API?

Nevermind, it looks like you need to include quote_id in the cartItem payload.

  • But isn't the quote only generated only when you place the order?

  • FYI, the quote_id being the same token as the cart id (not the actual quote entity primary key)
