Custom shopping carts are the bulk of your custom Stores' set up where you can select the inventory category, shipping method and warehouse, Price Group, and Associate Type. These options determine which inventory items will be available in your custom Store.

  Custom shopping carts are not available for AutoShip.

Linking to the Cart in the Navigation

  1. Add a new navigation link.:

    1. In the Link Name field, copy and paste the following URL:

      /OrderProductList?storeTitle=[STRING KEY OF STORE NAME]&cartId=[CART ID FROM ADMIN]

    2. In the URL, replace:

      • [CART ID FROM ADMIN] - The Card ID you copied from Step 2 of Saving the Cart Configuration.

      This URL is extremely case-sensitive and must be entered in the exact format. For example, /OrderProductList?storeTitle=New_Store&cartId=c72525ca-eae1-439f-b4e2-9681c50aee6d.
  2. In navigation link configuration, use Multi-Faceted Configuration to restrict who can see the link.
