This guide describes the Theme settings > Cart menu options.

Use the settings to specify how customers purchase products on your store's Cart page. Refer to Shopify help: Cart page.

In the previous video, on the right side, the Memphis Milano Palace Chair product is added to the store's cart. The cart is displayed inside a drawer (popup) on the Product page. On the left, in Theme settings > Cart, the cart drawer is configured by setting the following options:

  • The Cart type radio buttons are set to display the cart as a Drawer, instead of a Page.

  • To show the drawer on the current page when a customer adds a product to their cart, the checkbox option is enabled to Open drawer when product is added to cart.

For general guidance with adjusting a theme setting, refer to Settings overview and Shopify help: Theme settings.
