This plugin gives your WooCommerce store a sleek and contemporary shopping cart interface that makes it simpler for your customers to view and handle the items in their shopping carts before completing their purchases. In this document, we will explain how to set up this plugin on your website and take advantage of the unique and awesome features that come with this plugin.

Please note that the Modern Cart plugin is currently in beta mode so you can download it from your dashboard at https://my.cartflows.com/api-downloads/.
Please note that the Modern Cart plugin is still in the Beta version which means as of now you won’t need to activate it.
Once the plugin is installed and activated, you will need to access the settings page from the WooCommerce dashboard. Click on the WooCoomerce from the WordPress dashboard and click on the Modern Cart option in order to access the settings page.
You will be redirected to the General Settings page at first. Let’s look at the options that we have under the general settings of the Modern Cart plugin.
Display Floating Cart
This option will let you display a floating cart on your entire website or WooCommerce pages. You can also disable it if you do not like to display the floating cart on your website.
Here is how it appears on the front end of your website.
By default, you can choose from two different types of cart styles. You can also manually design the cart icon which we will cover later in this document.
Enable Free Shipping Bar
This option lets you enable a free shipping progress bar. This will let the customers know how far away the order is to get free shipping.
This option lets you recommend the linked products to your customers once they add the product to the cart. If you do not have any linked products, please navigate to the product page within WooCommerce and click on linked products. You will find upsells and cross-sells options. Add the products that you would like to recommend. Here is a screenshot below:
Once you have added upsells and cross-sells products to your product, you can then recommend them to your customer every time they add this product to their cart.
