Add to Cart

Controlling add to cart operation in your store

Unless otherwise noted, the products we will discuss on this page will be assumed to be in stock with the Call for Price flag set to No.

The “Add to Cart” button will always appear on the product info page. It may optionally appear on other pages under the following conditions:

  • If the button is configurable on the page in question, it not been turned off. For example, on the New Products page, the add to cart button may be turned off using the Display Product Buy Now Button switch on the Configuration > New Listing page.

  • The product has no attributes, or, the product has only single-valued attributes.
