Setting Up the Shopping Cart
The shopping cart for Easy Digital Downloads can be displayed in three different ways:
- A widget – add the “Downloads Cart” widget to any widget area
- A short code – place [download_cart] into the content of any post, page, or text widget
- A template tag (advanced users) – place the following function in your chosen theme template file:
// to store in a variable $cart = edd_shopping_cart(false); // to echo and display edd_shopping_cart(true);
Using the Downloads Cart Widget
The Downloads Cart widget is located under Appearance > Widgets. To get a simple display of the cart contents, including the option to remove any item, or proceed straight to Checkout, place this widget in any widget area on your site.
Setting up the Main Checkout Page
By default, Easy Digital Downloads creates a checkout page in your WordPress pages database. Should you find this page missing, you can re-create it by following the instructions on our Plugin Pages doc.
