Question about database design for product orders

Posted 1 year ago by PaulDiamant

I'm working on an ecommerce platform, and have a products table, orders table and orders_products table. Should I save the price of the single item in the orders_products table or fetch it every time the user goes to their cart and after they make a purchase?
