Magento 2 Quick Cart Extension by Mageplaza

magento 2 quick cart extension

As a store owner, you may always want the shopping experience of your customers to be as convenient much as possible. Although Magento 2 Default does have a Mini Cart, the cart only includes very little information (products, quantity, product price, and subtotal). Therefore, customers won’t get ready to checkout. 

To solve this problem and enhance customer experience, Mageplaza provides Magento 2 Quick Cart extension. The module is the advanced version of the default Mini Cart in both design and function. Let’s find out all of its improvements!

Why do you need the Mageplaza Quick Cart for Magento 2 stores? 

Upgrade Mini Cart in layout & effect

With the Quick Cart extension, the mini cart is improved in arrangement layout and animation effect. The mini cart by this extension is updated in the layout more clearly to view:

  • The buttons to make changes to cart and checkout are placed next to each other, marked at the mini cart’s end. 
  • The subtotal section is positioned below the product section.

Moreover, the mini cart is advanced with a popup effect triggered by a specific action.

  • Hover-over popup: The mini cart will be displayed when shoppers hover their mouse over the mini cart icon.
  • Slide-in popup: The mini cart will show up as a slide from the right of the screen. 

The enhancement in the interface of mini cart creates a better experience for shoppers, lowering cart abandonment rate and boosting conversion rates drastically. 

Contain more information

With the updated mini cart, shoppers can view the product price in detail:

  • Subtotal (the only one displayed in the Magento 2 Default)
  • Shipping & Handling fee
  • Tax
  • Grand Total
  • Reward points spent/ gained and balance

Shoppers can see all the price details quickly via their mini cart and manage their existing shopping cart better. 

Support applying coupon codes

Allowing customers to add coupon codes to the mini cart can encourage them to complete their purchase. They can apply their coupon code to their mini cart with ease, without going to the shopping cart page. After the code is entered, the total price will be updated accordingly. 

Shoppers can utilize this function to test and calculate the grand total after being discounted. Besides, the extension allows them to add or discard coupon codes right from the quick cart. 

Support customizing carts

  • Header Background Color
  • Header Text Color
  • Subtotal Background Color
  • Subtotal Text Color

Remarkably, Quick Cart supports custom CSS, making it simple to customize the mini cart. 

Provide fixed quick cart on scroll
