The Soft Add To Cart feature shows customers a summary of their cart without leaving the page they're currently viewing. The Add To Cart pop-up window displays when a customer adds an item to their shopping cart or hovers over the View Cart link in your store's header.
Activating / Deactivating Soft Add to Cart
- In your Admin Area, go to Inventory > Products.
- Click the three-dot actions menu icon and select All Products Settings.
- Enable or disable Enable Add To Cart Pop-up, and click Save.
Using Soft Add to Cart
At the bottom of the Soft Add To Cart window, customers see the number of items in their cart along with the subtotal.
They can remove products from their cart by clicking the X to the right of the item.
The Add To Cart window is displayed for 10 seconds if no activity is made within the box. The 10 second time frame resets if there is any activity. The customer can close the pop-up window at any time by clicking Continue Shopping or by navigating to another page.
When they're finished shopping, they can click the Check Out button in the Soft Add to Cart window to continue the checkout process.
Notes on Soft Add to Cart
Soft Add To Cart is not compatible with products using the Multi-Child Add To Cart feature. While the products are added to the cart successfully and show up in the cart summary, the Soft Add To Cart pop-up does not display automatically when multi-child items are added to the cart.
Additionally, note that Soft Add to Cart is not compatible with Volusion's Mobile Commerce feature, which has its own checkout configuration.
Note that the style and layout of the Soft Add To Cart pop-up window can only be modified for certain themes. See Soft Cart Styling for more information.
