Sometimes customers need more than one shopping cart, for example, one for daily purchases, the other one for monthly expenses. The Multiple Carts feature lets you create and manage multiple shopping carts in one customer account.

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 the Shopping Cart page in the 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 example, 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 the 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, dismiss, delete, switch cart to shopping list (see the Actions table for details)

Multiple carts list

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

ACTION DESCRIPTION
Edit Name lets a customer edit the name of the shopping cart.
Duplicate Creates a copy of the chosen shopping cart including the items added to the cart.
The duplicate copy of the cart is named according to the template: <Name of the original cart> Copied At <Mo. dd, yyyy hh:mm>
A cart can be converted into shopping list on the Shopping Cart page by clicking on To shopping list.

There are two ways to set a shopping cart as active:

  • Clicking on the cart name in the shopping cart widget in the header of the shop.
