I'm wondering if Loopbuddy can tap into my existing data in a shopping cart.  Specifically, I would like to be able to create a new page that would allow logged in users to see specific fields from previous purchases they made previously.  i.e. they could see just the name of the item(s) and prices (or whatever).

I'm pretty sure it can do it, but just wanted to make sure.  I looked through the documentation that I could find and only saw info on creating new fields.  Can you point me to some documentation on tapping into existing data?

Thanks for your help!  Ithemes rocks!

Sorry for the double post - I couldn't find my first question after about 15 minutes so I tried again.

Charles, it really depends on if the shopping cart (which one are you using) creates the products in a custom post type.  If it creates the product as a custom post type then you'll be able to integrate loopbuddy into your workflow.

Benjamin,

It looks like my cart does use custom post types - great news.  I'll buy the Loopbuddy plugin today and give it a try.

Thanks for your help.
