SendForm Checkout

SendForm checkout allows you to submit a form to an arbitrary url, which can allow you to do a custom checkout.  You can setup the method like this:

    checkout: { 
        type: "SendForm" , 
        url: "" 

There are additional optional parameters that can be set as well:

    checkout: { 
        type: "SendForm" , 
        url: "" ,

        // http method for form, "POST" or "GET", default is "POST"
        method: "GET" , 

        // url to return to on successful checkout, default is null
        success: "success.html" , 

        // url to return to on cancelled checkout, default is null
        cancel: "cancel.html" ,

        // an option list of extra name/value pairs that can
        // be sent along with the checkout data
        extra_data: {
          storename: "Bob's cool plumbing store",
          cartid: "12321321"

    I am Michiel Kempen, 17 years old and I live in Belgium.
    I am trying to setup a webshop with simplecartjs. I have setup a whole process trough many pages but now I need to store all my data in a mysql database. How can I store the items ans prices in my database without using <div class=“simpleCart_items”></div>.

    Have the values for simpleCart_total and simpleCart_grandTotal been purposely omitted from the form variables returned by the SendForm checkout method?

    If so, how can I have them included? If not, what I am missing?
