Different cart and checkout for different type of products?

I need a functionality to be built, which should have two type of products and each type should have a cart for their own.

If a user adds a product of type one, it should be added in the cart1 and If he add a product of type two, it should be added in the cart2.

The cart1 and cart2 should have separate separate checkout workflow.

Please provide suggestion on how to obtain the above functionality.

Does such functionality even exist in any e-commerce solution? If so, please post a link. I have never heard of this before and not sure why it would be needed. Better yet, can you please provide more details about your use case? Perhaps there is another solution. In fact, I am certain there is. Cheers, Kevin

I have a requirement that user should recharge for points in the application and then he can buy products only using those points.
So, I used the below workflow
1) Created a Recharge Product which provides points on payment(any currency payment gateway paypal/authoriz.net) success for the particular user.
2) Created products with price as points.
3) I have created a payment method to handle those points payments.
4) Now, I should handle this Recharge Product and the Products which uses points as price in separate cart. Since both are using different payment methods.

It would be good, If I can skip cart for the Recharge product alone.
