How does the persistent shopping cart option work in Magento?

  1. It works by setting the configuration for how long a customer’s cart will keep the items they have added.  The store must be setup to accept session cookies (short term and long term).  A persistent shopping cart keeps track of unpurchased items left in the cart, and saves the information for the customer’s next visit. Customers who are “remembered” can have the contents of their shopping carts restored the next time they visit your store.
