I'm using WordPress E-Commerce (get shopped) and would like to get a list of items that a user has purchased, just a list of post IDs would be perfect. Is there any way for me to get this?

It must be stored somewhere.. has anyone attempted this before?

Query the table wp_wpsc_purchase_logs, it contains all information about previous purchases.

add this to your themes functions.php:

Get purchased articles by user_id or for the current user
function haet_recently_bought_articles($user_id=0){

    //only if there is an active user, otherwise we would get all purchased items from unregistered users
    if($user_id>0) {
        global $wpdb;
        $sql = $wpdb->prepare("
                SELECT prodid, name, price
                FROM `".$wpdb->prefix."wpsc_cart_contents` 
                INNER JOIN `".$wpdb->prefix."wpsc_purchase_logs` ON purchaseid = ".$wpdb->prefix."wpsc_purchase_logs.id
                WHERE  user_ID = %d
                ORDER BY date DESC"
        $items = $wpdb->get_results($sql,ARRAY_A);
        return $items;
    return null;

and add the following lines to the template to show the products e.g. page-.php

<ul class="articles">
    $articles = haet_recently_bought_articles();
    foreach($articles AS $article){
        echo '<li>'.$article['name'].'</li>';

An example would probably be useful. –  toscho Apr 30 '13 at 20:20
global $wpsc_cart;  

This is the global variable , looping through this will get all the info ie products added in cart by user, just do

 print_r( $wpsc_cart; )

and you will come to know.

That's not quite what I'm after. I'm looking for a full list of purchases, not just what's in the cart right now. –  Matt Potts Apr 13 '12 at 11:17
Shopping Cart Settings in admin presentation check <?php echo wpsc_shopping_cart(); ?> ) this gives shopping cart. –  amolv Apr 13 '12 at 12:43
Sorry, the shopping cart isn't what I'm after. I'm after a full list of all product IDs that have been purchased by the logged in user –  Matt Potts Apr 13 '12 at 13:23
Shopping cart is nothing but list of all product purchased by logged in user, but why do need only product ids of product purchased by logged in user? –  amolv Apr 13 '12 at 13:50
I'm trying to find out what products a user has bought preivously. –  Matt Potts Apr 14 '12 at 13:11
