Transfer temporary user cart items when user logs in


I am creating an e-commerce platform. I have set up so that even when a user is not logged in they can add items to their basket. If a user goes on to sign up for an account, the products that were in their temporary basket are automatically transferred to their basket once signed up. This element works fine.
