The mini cart module provides a summary view of what's in the cart and can be placed on any page in your portal. The following is a screen shot of the shopping cart with the mini cart module added to the left pane:
In the BuyNow module settings, product listing section there is a checkbox titled "Use MiniCart".
Use MiniCart Checkbox not checked (Default)
When the Use Minicart checkbox is not checked and the user clicks the add to cart button from the product listing page, the product is added to the cart and the user is redirected to the main cart screen.
Use MiniCart Checkbox checked
When the Use Minicart checkbox is checked and the user clicks the add to cart button from the product listing page, the product is added to the cart and the mini cart and the user stays on the product listing page.
Mini Cart Module Settings
To view the Mini Cart module settings hover your mouse over the “Manage” button in the upper left corner of the mini cart module container and choose “Settings”.
The Smith Mini Cart Settings Page will be displayed as follows:
BuyNow Page Name – If the mini cart module is on the same page as the BuyNow module then it’s not required that you select a page from the drop down list. If you add the mini cart module to a page that does not have the BuyNow module on it then you must select the page name that has the BuyNow module. This tells the mini cart module which page to navigate to when the user clicks the MiniCart checkout button.
My Account Page Name - Select the page where you have added the My Account module. This tells the Mini Cart module which page to navigate to when the user clicks Cart and Bids buttons.
MiniCart Layout: Select the layout for the MiniCart Module.
