Multiple Carts feature overviewEdit on GitHub
Sometimes customers need more than one shopping cart, for example, one for daily purchases, the other one for monthly expenses. The Multiple Carts feature allows you to 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 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 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)
The table bellow provides detailed information on the possible actions to manage shopping carts.
|Edit Name||Allows a customer to 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:
A cart can be converted into shopping list on the Shopping cart page by clicking on To shopping list.
|Dismiss||Allows a customer to dismiss a shared shopping cart.|
|Delete||Deletes the shopping cart.
Deleting a shopping cart also deletes the items added to it.
To view how to create, edit, duplicate, and delete a cart and how to dissmiss shared carts, see the Multiple Carts on the storefront section.
To learn more about sharing the shopping cart, check out Shared Cart documentation.
Active shopping cart is highlighted in bold.
Only one shopping cart can be set as active in the customer account.
There are 2 ways to set a shopping cart as active:
- Clicking on the cart name in the shopping cart widget in the header of the shop.
- Clicking on the cart name on the Shopping Cart page in the My Account menu.
After the shopping cart is set to active, the user is redirected to a respective cart page where the table with the following information is available:
- Product image
- Product name
- Product attributes
- Product options
- Price mode
- Item price
- Cat Note
