Discount on Cart Total

We want to introduce you to a great marketing tool that will increase sales in your online store. Discount on cart total allows you to offer discounts based on the cart totals. For example, you are offering a 10% discount to buyers on buying products worth $100. Even more, you can create multiple discounts and motivate customers to buy more:


  • 10% discount on buying products worth $100
  • 20% discount on buying products worth $150



To enable a discount on the cart total, navigate to discounts and in the discount restrictions settings set - cart.

Boost your sales by offering a flexible discount system. Motivate buyers to purchase more by adding multiple discounts on the cart's total price. Successful sales!

Hide Cart When Empty

The cart is an essential part of any online store. However, the Gridbox store app allows you to build more than just a classic store site. You can sell memberships for online courses, sell digital products on the artist's website, and sell anything else. Displaying the shopping cart is not always suitable for such sites.



In today’s update, we introducing a new option for the plugin cart, the ability to hide the cart when it’s empty. The option you’ll find in the plugin settings.

After enabling the option, the cart on the storefront will be invisible until you add a product.

Conclusion

But something went wrong. We decided to release one big update for eCommerce, which will include long-awaited features. Sure you'll find useful features for your eCommerce site.
