What is the QuickCart feature?

On your 3dcart powered store, you have the option of controlling what action is taken when your shoppers add an item to their cart. This can be set in the store's Store Settings page. To see this area of the cart software, log into your 3dcart Online Store Manager and, using the left hand navigation:

  1. Go to Settings ->General ->Store Settings
  2. Once there, click on the "General" tab

Directly beneath the "General" label, you will see a setting for the store's "Add to Cart Action" with several possible settings. These are:

  • None
    Clicking on "Add to Cart" will add the item to cart.
    The screen will refresh briefly, but there will be no other indication that the item was added to the cart until the shopper actively goes to the View Cart page.
  • View Cart
    Clicking on "Add to Cart" will add the item to cart and take the shopper directly to the View Cart page.
  • Checkout
    Clicking on "Add to Cart" will add the item to cart and take the shopper directly to the first checkout page.
  • QuickCart
    Clicking on "Add to Cart" will add the item to cart and display a pop-out representation of the View Cart
    For the purpose of this article, we will discuss the QuickCart option.

With QuickCart enabled, your shoppers will now have a quick preview of the cart without ever leaving the product or category pages.

Enabling QuickCart

To enable QuickCart, follow the steps outlined above and select "QuickCart" and click on the "Save" button at the top right.

What Your Shoppers Will See

When adding an item to the cart, your shoppers will see a semi-transparent pop-up window that contains a preview of their cart.

From this point, the visitor will be able to edit their cart, continue shopping or simply proceed to checkout as desired.

Note
If the product being added to cart has required options to select, then the QuickCart function will only work directly from the Product Listing page after options have been selected.

Also note that the functionality of QuickCart is dependent on having QuickView enabled on the store.
