Creating a Shopping Cart Template


What is a Shopping Cart Template?

Cart Templates set the general look and feel your customers experience with the shop.
At a high level, they control import behaviors for a job, like:

  • The wallpaper used when signing into the shop.

  • Control customer ability to apply a crop/filter to ordered images.

  • Control customer ability to leave any notes about their order.

  • Custom messaging for different scenarios (no images, missed deadline, etc.)

  • Collect shipping, handling and/or tax where applicable.

  • Apply a text or image watermark to images in the gallery.

From the homepage, select the Shopping Cart > Manage Cart Templates.

Click on any template name to open and review/edit that template. Create a new one using the big, green, +NEW button in the top-right corner. Any new templates created are done so from a copy of your default template.

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

When are my changes applied to existing jobs?

All changes are immediately applied on any jobs using the template after saving.

Note: If changes are made while a job is active - it's possible that orders can still be submitted with the previous configurations stored from a customer's cached visit.

It's recommended to review and confirm your shopping cart template settings before making the job active for online ordering.
