Overview | Modify the Cart

Before products can be purchased from a Web site, a shopping cart page must be added (see adding a new page for details).

The shopping cart page can be customized as desired from the page modifier. Add a cart component (located in the Add a Component/Other submenu) to the page at the desired location. The cart component can be added directly as an element to the page, or within a pre-existing table.

Click on "Page" in the top-left corner of the Page Editor. Click on "Other". Click on "Cart".

Once the cart component is added, the page will refresh with a sample image in the location where the cart will display.
