Floating Cart / Mini Shopping Cart Installation & Implementation for Your Yahoo Store

Yahoo's new Floating Cart and Mini Shopping Cart for Yahoo Store Owners is a much needed upgrade!

A floating cart allows merchants to display important order, shipping, and store promotion information to customers, while keeping them in the shopping flow.

When the floating cart is enabled for your store, you can offer the following checkout features to your customers, without causing them to exit your store pages to a separate checkout flow:

  • Display the items currently in the shopper's cart, along with the quantity of each item added.
  • Display the order subtotal.
  • Allow customers to increase or decrease the quantity of each item ordered, and to remove items.
  • Offer customers the ability to calculate shipping costs to US and Canada destinations.
  • Let customers apply a coupon to their order.
  • Offer a free shipping promotion, and display messages both before and after an order qualifies for free shipping.

A mini-cart shows customers a summary of their order information, including the number of items and order subtotal, even if the floating cart is closed or not enabled. When the floating cart is enabled for a store, but is closed, customers can click on the mini-cart to re-open the floating cart.

What types of stores should use the floating cart?

Use of a floating cart is recommended for stores from which customers are likely to purchase more than one item per order, such as stores that sell apparel, craft supplies, sporting goods, food items, cosmetics, books, music, or DVDs, as a few examples.

By installing a floating cart, merchants create a shopping flow that keeps customers on store pages when they add an item to their cart, wish to modify their cart contents, calculate shipping costs, apply a coupon to their order, or see their order subtotal. By keeping customers on store pages while performing these actions, rather than taking them directly to checkout, customers may be encouraged to shop for additional items and increase their order value.

Stores that sell big-ticket items, such as appliances or furniture, do not typically display a floating cart to their customers. Since customers of these stores are mainly shopping for and purchasing one item only, a common shopping flow for these stores is to immediately take customers to checkout to complete their order.

All types of stores may wish to include a mini-cart within their store pages, to display a basic summary of selected cart information to customers, without affecting the shopping and checkout flow.
