Multiple Carts feature overview

Edit on GitHub

Shopping Cart is a part of the online shop where the record of the items a buyer has ‘picked up’ from the online store is kept. The shopping cart enables consumers to select products, review what they selected, make modifications or add extra items if needed, and purchase the products.

Creating and Managing Multiple Shopping Carts

There are two ways to create a shopping cart:

  • through a shopping cart widget in the header of shop
  • from Shopping Cart page in My Account menu

New items are added to the shopping cart by clicking Add to Cart on the product details page.

Customers can create not just one, but multiple shopping carts to be used for different needs.

These could be, for instance, a shopping cart for daily purchases or a shopping cart for goods that you purchase once in a month.

After a shopping cart has been created, it appears in the shopping carts table on Shopping Cart page in My Account.

The table with shopping carts shows details for each of the carts, including:

  • Name of the shopping cart
  • Access level (Owner, Read-only or Full access)
  • Number of products added to cart
  • Price mode (Net or Gross)
  • Cart Total
  • Possible actions to manage shopping carts: edit name, duplicate, share, delete, switch cart to shopping list (see the Actions table for details)

Multiple carts list

The table bellow provides detailed information on the possible actions to manage shopping carts.
