A mini cart is an option for a simplified customer checkout process.
With the Charge theme settings, you can add a mini cart on Shopify without using any additional apps.
If you enable the option, a min cart bar with added items becomes visible right after adding the product to the shopping cart or when clicking the cart icon. This will help customers reach checkout faster with just one click on the button.
If disabled, users will be redirected to the shopping cart page after clicking on the cart icon in the header.
Go to the Theme settings and choose a Minicart subsection. Here you can change the following settings:
- Enable mini cart.
- Show product SKU.
- Show link to cart.
- Choose a mini cart type. Two options are available: Dropdown (set by Default) and Drawer. In case you select the Drawer type, see the result.
- Enable overlay.
