Installing The Shopping Cart Widget
In this video you will learn how to install the Cart66 shopping cart widget and configure the settings for your shopping cart.
Installing the shopping cart widget is as simple as logging in to your WordPress admin panel and dragging and dropping the Cart66 Shopping Cart Widget to your side bar.
Once you have dropped the shopping cart widget on to the side bar, you can give it a title or leave the title as "Your Cart" which is the default title.
Shopping Cart Settings
There are several settings for the shopping cart that control the shopping experience after the "Add To Cart" button is clicked.
- Stay on same page: The shopper stays on the same page where the "Add to Cart" button was clicked. A post back refreshes the page and the shopping cart widget is updated.
- Stay on same page with ajax add to cart: The shopper stays on the same page and the shopping cart sidebar widget is updated via ajax so the page doesn't blink/refresh.
- Go to view cart page: The shopper is taken to the view cart page where the products and the shopping cart can be managed - change the quantity, remove a product from the cart, etc.
- Go to checkout page: The shopper is taken directly to your secure checkout page where the billing information is collected, bypassing the shopping cart.
