Cart items ​

This guide describes setting up the Cart items section.

Use the section to set how cart items are displayed on your store's Cart page.

​An example Cart items section on a store's home page.

​The previous image shows a Cart items section on a store's Cart area. In the upper left, part of Theme editor's section menu is displayed. The menu's Theme settings > Show free shipping progress option is set to on ("checked"). With this setting enabled, the store's Cart area displays a free shipping progress indicator with the message "Spend another $10.01 and get free shipping". After the customer's order amount exceeds the store's specified threshold, the indicator notifies the customer that their order qualifies for free shipping.


The Show free shipping progress checkbox is a Cart Theme settings option that's accessed from the section's menu. Refer to Section theme settings menu. You can also access the checkbox from the Cart Theme settings menu. Refer to Cart.

To set up a free shipping progress indicator, refer to Show a free shipping progress bar.

For general guidance with modifying sections, refer to Sections overview, and Shopify help: Sections and blocks.
