The e-commerce Shopping Cart is the equivalent of the physical basket or trolley in a physical shop, but it comes with a range of advanced features that goes well beyond just storing products in it before checking out.
Shopping Cart Template
The shopping cart page template is fully customisable and can be tailored to your specific needs. It can be a separate page or a sidebar embedded in other pages, or a popup or really anything. Multiple shopping cart templates can be configured, such as popup one that appears when adding product to cart and a full page one, when going tot he dedicated shopping cart page.
Add to Cart Modes
Support for multiple add-to-cart modes, controlling what happens if a product is added multiple times to the shopping cart. Individual add-to-cart actions can result in quantity increments or adding separate items to the cart. This together with product customisation capabilities allows for limitless possibilities.
Shipping Cost Calculation
When courier integration is enabled, shipping cost can be calculated in real-time as the cart page is rendered to the website visitor, showing shipping options and costs specific to the content of the shopping cart and delivery location, typically entered by the website visitor on the cart page, as appropriate for the country.
When using the Vouchers module, website visitors in posession of a voucher code can enter it on the shopping cart page and see if it is applicable to their shopping cart and if it is, the discount given.
Multiple Shopping Carts Support
More advanced setups may require using multiple shopping carts. For example, a business selling subscriptions and physical products, may require that physical products are added to the regular shopping cart, while subscription-related products are kept separate in a separate shopping cart.
