I have a custom payment gateway module.
When you click on the Place Order button on checkout, it redirects you to an external payment page & after that you return to a custom controller on that module.
This controller handles the payment response & if it's all good - it converts the current quote to an order using placeOrder() from Magento\Quote\Api\CartManagementInterface. Then it redirects you to the normal success page ('checkout/onepage/success/').
The problem is, although the order has been placed & it all worked as it should - the minicart on the header is not empty (You get to the success page, see a link to the order details, but the mini cart stays full).
I tested other payment methods like checkmo, etc... & they always clear the carts somehow, it only happens with this payment method.
*I know that I can use customerData.invalidate(['cart']); on the success page as a workaround (that's my current solution actually, and it works), but I don't like it. I assume that there's something that happens on the other methods/flows that triggers the minicart refresh.
What am I missng here?
Any idea?

  • Which Magento2 version you are using? – Amit Naraniwal Feb 12 at 7:46
  • It happens on 2.2.5 – Pini Feb 12 at 7:47

Try to add below script in the vendor\magento\module-checkout\view\frontend\templates\success.phtml

     ], function (customerData) {
         var sections = ['cart'];
         customerData.reload(sections, true);
  • I already wrote that that's what I'm doing at the moment. I'm looking for a real solution. What causes the problem & why it doesn't happen on other payment methods? – Pini Feb 12 at 7:57
  • you tried customerData.reload(sections, true) as well? – Amit Naraniwal Feb 12 at 7:59
  • Yes, customerData.invalidate(['cart']); does the job. but it's just a workaround. I don't like this solution. I'm trying to understand how Magento does that on other payment methods & do the same. – Pini Feb 12 at 8:02
