Add to Cart

Controlling add to cart operation in your store

The scope of this FAQ is stores in normal mode (STORE_STATUS = 0), and products with:

  • Stock sufficient for a sale (per the stock settings).
  • The Call for Price flag set to “No.”

When we say “Add to Cart” it could be:

  • a “Buy Now” button
  • a quantity box where the whole page is a form with “Add Selected to Cart” buttons at the top and/or bottom

The ability to Add to Cart will always be provided on the product info page.

Actions after Add to Cart
