I want to empty the cart before a product in the code. I tried


But this did not work and gave an error. I am doing this in Drupal 8. I am adding products in the controller code.

This is how I am fetching the cart.

$destination = \Drupal::service('path.current')->getPath();
   $productObj = Product::load($productId);

   $product_variation_id = $productObj->get('variations')
   $storeId = $productObj->get('stores')->getValue()[0]['target_id'];
   $variationobj = \Drupal::entityTypeManager()
   $store = \Drupal::entityTypeManager()

     $cart = $this->cartProvider->getCart('default', $store);


   if (!$cart) {
    $cart = $this->cartProvider->createCart('default', $store);


   $line_item_type_storage = \Drupal::entityTypeManager()
// Process to place order programatically.
   $cart_manager = \Drupal::service('commerce_cart.cart_manager');
   $line_item = $cart_manager->addEntity($cart, $variationobj);

    $response = new RedirectResponse(Url::fromRoute('commerce_cart.page')->toString());
    return $response;

You must use the commerce_cart.cart_manager service instead.

So $this->cartManager->emptyCart($cart); should do the trick.

Update: The reason why you get an error is because you try to call emptyCart on $cart then it's NULL.

You must wrap the line where you empty the cart in an if statement, like this:

if (!empty($cart)) {
