We've just discovered a major bug on our site www.arteanafashion.com (theme: Showcase by Clean Canvas), resulting in carts disappearing through at least the following two paths:
a) add to cart -> view cart -> checkout -> product disappears (iPhone 6s, safari + perhaps other types)
b) add to cart -> view cart -> change currency -> product disappears (unknown mobile device, safari + perhaps other types)
On desktop and other mobile devices everything seems to be working fine so it's not always possible for me to replicate the issues.
However, some days we have 80-100 ATC with 0-1 purchases so I'm concerned that there are many more paths/devices where the carts end up disappearing.

With no technical background it is extremely difficult for me to understand how to troubleshoot this and if it's an issue with Shopify, Showcase theme or any apps installed.
I'd highly appreciate if anyone could guide us in the right direction.
Thank you so much!
hello there, wondering if you have found a solution? I think I have the same problem on my store. carts are emptying on mobile devices. seems to be just I phones
thanks for your help in advance
I'm having the same issue. Losing lots of customers. I've made no changes to my site but it's happened suddenly. Shopify support just say it all works fine when they try it. But my customers say otherwise. I've even tried publishing an old version of my website from months ago but it hasn't made any difference so I know it's not due to any changes I've made.
My theme is Minimal v9.0. problem happens in Firefox on computer an mobile phone. works fine on Chrome on computer but when I try Chrome on iPad the problem happens there!! bizarre. doesn't make any sense. I'm not certain when i started but I would also agree it was early Saturday and possibly Friday judging by the lack of orders.
Yes please. I'm glad to hear (in a way) that someone else has the same problem as I've spent hours trying to identify the issue and found nothing wrong. i don't think it's theme related though as we have completely different themes. I'm also surprised that nobody else is having the issue if it's a Shopify-caused fault. the fact that even my months-old version of my website that i've re-published is also having the same issue definitely suggests it's being caused by something wrong with Shopify's checkout code (as we have no access to that or control over it).
Did you get anywhere with Shopify? I was on for ages with live chat but they don't understand the problem. It's been escalated apparently.
I envy you! I'm getting nowhere. I don't have mailchimp so I'm even more confused as to what the problem is now.
Sorry about the delay in getting back to you.
My (initial) cart bug was caused by the native currency selector (+Shopify Multicurrency + Shopify currency app). After uninstalling all of this and installing a third-party currency app, most of the bugs have disappeared.
However, I've just identified another cart bug when you a) change currency, b) remove item from the cart, c) add new items to cart - you are then unable to proceed to proceed to checkout. The bug "stays" with the user until they switch the currency to default (EURO) and try again so it indicates that Shopify has some bugs to fix related to they Multicurrency checkout feature.
My recommendation would be to hire a freelance Shopify developer to investigate the issue as I would not have identified/solved the problems myself.
Hope it helps @David28 - Happy to hear you've fixed your bug @aliceshops. Would be great to get some input from the Shopify team as well.
Oh no. Bacially the theme guy that helped me tested disabling each of my aps one by one. and so thats how he focused in on mailchimp. so maybe disbale each of your aps one at a time as he did? he said that virtually all issues like this are ap related so I hope it works if you didnt try already
Have the same Issue over here. Not working on Firefox or IOS devices. Such a pain! My CR is falling down cause oh this!!!!! Please provide us a solution to this matter fast. This is a big disaster.
Issue still persists for me today. More lost orders. Tried disabling each app but it still happens. Very frustrating!
