I am building a shoppingcart using the Magento2 Rest API and I want to create a cart for a customer and (if not logged in) for a guest.

For guest carts is it working:

Create a guestcart:

POST /V1/guest-carts returns :cartId

Get guestcart:

GET /V1/guest-carts/:cartId returns cartObject

Fine so far, but for a customer who is logged in (using a customerToken) it doesn't work:

Create a customercart (using the customertoken):

POST /V1/carts/mine returns [message] => Cannot create quote

So i tried this workaround (using API token) but it returns the same message:

Create a customercart (using the API token):

POST /V1/customers/:customerId/carts returns [message] => Cannot create quote

I get the same result for different customers.

Does anyone has a clue?

Using Magento 2.2.5

  • Just quickly thinking here, not sure if I will help you, but have you tried to check the server side for error logs? Like Magento's var/log. See if anything gets logged there yet? It might give you clues about the problem I hope.

  • Thanks for the tip, but nothing useful in the log files unfortunately.
