You can do it by the configuration options (version 3 of Hikashop):

Go to backend:

Hikashop -> Configuration -> Advanced -> Advanced Settings

Configure cart retaining period

  • hikashop support descript for "cart retaining period" : It's normal. The cart retaining period and frequency are done when you access the backend of the shop. The point is to clear the carts once in a while. So that you have about a few weeks or months of carts in the database and not that it grows indefinitely. Even if you set it to 5 minutes, it won't clear the carts every five minutes. Commented Feb 1, 2018 at 13:26
