Shop Module Updates - December 2020

by LA - Customer Success Manager 30 Nov 1999

We've add some great new updates to the shop module to help both users and admins get the most out their product sales.

Shopping cart added to the main navigation

The shopping cart icon can be added to your sites main navigation allowing users easy access to review and manage their shopping cart.

On desktop the cart summary will drop down from the icon. On mobile the summary will fly out from the right hand side of the browser.

Users can add product to their cart and they will be added within the bag icon within the navigation.

There are two new screens the user will see:

1. When a product is added to cart the user will see a prompt adding it to their shopping bag.

2. The user can rollover the bag icon to see a summary of their shopping cart.

How to add the cart to the navigation

The cart/bag icon can be added within the navigation settings. Simply add a new item, select platform default and choose the shopping cart option and save. That's it. Please note the cart/bag icon will only appear once someone has added a product to their cart.

Quick view

The shop block has a new quick view layout type. This allows users to quickly view the product in a simple popup from a single click and not navigate away from the initial shop page.

How to select the quick view layout

Within your shop block settings, simply select the QUICK VIEW option from the layout drop down.

The summary screens have had some design tweaks

Postal address in registration forms
