How To Use the Cart Widget in Elementor

Now, let’s get into the step-by-step guide for how you can start using the Elementor Cart widget on your WooCommerce store.

1. Edit Your Store’s Default Cart Page in Elementor
When you create a WooCommerce store, WooCommerce will automatically create a cart page for your store that uses the WooCommerce cart shortcode.

For this tutorial, you’re going to use this existing page for your design. But rather than just sticking with the default styling from your theme, you’ll edit this page with Elementor to access all of Elementor’s design options.

To begin, go to the Pages list in your dashboard and find the Cart page. It should be marked as “Cart Page”.

Once you find it, click the Edit button to open the WordPress editor. Then, inside the editor, click the option to Edit With Elementor to launch Elementor’s interface.

2. Replace the WooCommerce Cart Shortcode With the Elementor Cart Widget
When you first open your store’s existing cart page in Elementor, you’ll see the [woocommerce_cart] shortcode in an Elementor Text Editor widget.

To start your design, you’ll want to delete this existing widget/shortcode and replace it with Elementor’s new dedicated Cart widget:

Now, you’re ready to start customizing the design of your cart page.

Note – we recommend adding some items to your shopping cart so that you can see what a “full” cart looks like while you’re working on your design. Otherwise, you’ll see your cart in its empty state when you’re working in Elementor.

You can do this by going to the frontend of your store, adding some items to your cart, and then reloading the Elementor interface. Once you reload Elementor, those items should appear in your cart while you’re working on your design.

If you ever want to go back to previewing how an “empty” cart looks, you can just remove those items from your cart on the frontend of your site and then reload the Elementor interface.

3. Set Up the Layout of Your Cart
To control the layout, design, and other behavior of your cart, you can open its settings in the sidebar just like you would edit any other Elementor widget.

To start, you can choose between using a one-column or two-column layout in the Layout drop-down of the General settings. Using a two-column layout is nice because it brings the cart totals up top, which makes the cart totals more visible when browsing on larger devices.

You can also make the cart totals column sticky on a scroll by enabling the Sticky Right Column toggle. You might want to also add an offset to ensure that this doesn’t overlap with other content.

Next, you can use the Order Summary settings to adjust the “Update Cart” button text if needed.

In the Totals settings, you’ll get similar options to adjust the labels and alignment of various cart elements, such as the “Proceed to Checkout” button text.

If you’ve enabled the WooCommerce shipping calculator feature, you can also configure that in the widget’s settings. You can enable the shipping calculator in WooCommerce’s settings by going to WooCommerce → Settings → Shipping → Shipping options and checking the box to enable the shipping calculator on the cart page.

Finally, the Additional Options settings give you a toggle to enable automatic cart updates. Instead of requiring shoppers to click the Update button to apply their changes; enabling this feature, will update the cart automatically without a page reload.

4. Adjust the Styling of Your Cart

Now, you can configure the style and design of your cart by going to the Style tab in the widget’s settings. Here, you’ll see a number of different settings areas including SectionsTypographyForms, and more.

Here are the general style options that you’ll find in each area:

  • Sections – you can control the overall style of all three cart widget parts. For example, you can apply a background to the entire cart or add a box-shadow.
  • Typography – you can control some general typography and colors for key labels such as titles, descriptions, links, and so on.
  • Forms – you can control the styling of the coupon field form and the shipping fields form (if you’ve enabled the shipping calculator on the cart page). For example, you can use the Rows Gap setting to create some space between form fields.
  • Buttons – you can style the Apply Coupon and Update buttons with all the Elementor button styling options that you’re familiar with.
  • Order Summary – you can control the style for the products in cart and order summary.
  • Totals – you can control the design of the “Cart Totals” section, which is what lists the total cost of the shopper’s order.
  • Checkout Button – you can control the design of the checkout button. You’ll want to make it eye-catching to ensure shoppers don’t miss it as this is the action that you want them to perform.
  • Customize – you can get more granular control over the order summary, coupon, and totals. If you add these options, you’ll get additional settings focused on those areas. For example, you could use this to make your “totals” section stand out from the rest of your cart with a separate background color, box-shadow, border, and so on.

5. Customize the Mobile Version of Your Cart

At the point when you utilize the Elementor Cart gadget, your truck will be portable responsive naturally. Nonetheless, as with other Elementor gadgets and plans, you can likewise go in and physically change how your truck should look on changed gadgets to make the most perfect insight for each customer.

6. Adjust WooCommerce Settings in Site Settings If Needed

This last advance is discretionary, yet it merits bringing up that you can likewise control key WooCommerce page tasks from the Elementor Site Settings region.

For instance, assuming that you made another page for your truck with Elementor as opposed to altering the current WooCommerce truck page, you could advise WooCommerce to utilize your new page from the Elementor Site Settings.

You can get to these choices from the WooCommerce tab of the standard Site Settings region. The WooCommerce choice will show up under the Settings heading.
