Pro Added To Cart Popup

The Added To Cart Popup module allows you to display an attractive popup with a product summary and call-to-action buttons whenever a customer adds an item to the cart.

You can use the Added To Cart Popup module together with the Recently Viewed Products, Frequently Bought Together, and Buy X, Get Y modules to add relevant product suggestions to the popup.

As the module lets you exclude any of your products or product categories, you don’t have to show the popup for all of your products if you don’t want to. You can also configure which elements you want to show inside the popup.

In the screenshot below, you can see an example of an Added To Cart popup on a WooCommerce product page:

2. Find the Module’s Settings

Like all Merchant modules, the Added To Cart Popup module comes pre-configured with sensible defaults that work and look good right out of the box — however, it also allows you to change any of the settings.

On the module’s admin page, you’ll find two groups of settings:

  • Popup Settings – These options let you configure the module’s behavior and the layout of the Added To Cart popup.
  • Look and Feel – Here, you can customize the design settings of the popup.

While configuring the settings, you’ll also be able to follow the changes in real time in the Preview section next to the settings:
