How to create a Cart Page with EcomSolid

In this article, we will demonstrate how to create a Cart page with EcomSolid.  

What is Cart page?

A Cart page is an essential part of an e-commerce website designed as a middle step between the product page and checkout page. It allows you to show the individual prices of each of the products customers choose to buy, the quantity, as well as the total amount of all the items before they proceed to checkout.

 

 

If you want to keep customers on the product page after adding an item to the cart, please consider using a Cart drawer. Click here for more details.
