What is a Shopping Cart Template?

The Shopping Cart Templates makes up the general look and feel your clients experience when using the online gallery. You can also configure the shipping, handling, and tax rates in your cart template.

To start, click on the Shopping Cart tab and select Manage Cart Templates.

Click on any template name to begin customizing that template. You can also build a new one from scratch using the big, green, +NEW button in the top-right corner.

 Here's a run-down of the different sections that make up a Shopping Cart Template:


Give your template a unique name, wallpaper (or choose from one of the available presets), and enable/disable basic cropping, editing, and order notes features that are available to your clients.

You can also control the messaging that will show to customers in the online gallery during different events, such as:

  • Thank you message upon a completed checkout
  • Gallery expired message
  • Gallery unavailable message


Customize the watermark settings for images in your online gallery. You can choose between custom text or uploading your own image (PNG) as a watermark. Don't forget to set the position of the watermark and if it should also be applied to your thumbnails.

Use the Preview Watermark button (boxed) to see it in action:

Pro Tip: We recommend using Tiled Diagonal for the most coverage. 

Shipping & Handling

Customize the shipment type and applicable rates for your job.

You can specify the shipment type between either direct shipment or pickup at a specified location - or let the customer decide using Customer Choice. You can also set the minimum order amount customers must have in their cart before proceeding to checkout.

Pro Tip: Use the Label text field to rename the Shipping and Handling fees in the cart.


Set the rate of tax on your orders. You can choose to tax all orders or just ones that involve shipping. You also can set separate rates between physical orders and digital download orders.

Click on the big, green SAVE button in the top-right corner to save the changes made to your template to the cloud. After saving, all the changes made will be immediately available on every machine you login to Blueprint with.
