The Cart page shows a detailed summary of the items and the total cost. In Empire, customers can also include content blocks, order notes, and a shipping estimator on this page.
Use the theme editor to access settings for cart page, include order notes, show shipping estimator, and add content blocks for the Cart page.
Access settings for cart page
To access the settings for the cart page, go to Customize, then select the cart icon. In the left-side settings, open Cart page under TEMPLATE.
Add a few items to the cart before making changes to the settings since some of the features depend on added items for their display.
Include order notes
Select Enable order notes text box to include a message field on the Cart page. Your customers can use this field to leave you shipping notes, order personalization, etc.
To change the text included in this feature, navigate to the theme’s Edit languages settings.
Show shipping estimator
Allow customers to calculate the estimated shipping cost by selecting Enable shipping estimator.
Add the name of the preferred Default country to preselect this for your customers. This can still be changed by the customer, and if the customer already has an account with your store, the default country will reflect their mailing address.
For more information on setting your shipping rates, check out Shopify’s guide.
Add content blocks
The Cart page in Empire features up to 2 content blocks. The 3 block types to include here are Rich text, Page, and Image.
Add some styled text to include some information relating to the cart, orders, checkout, etc.
Pull text and image content from a static page to display here. You may want to create a page specifically for the details you’ll be adding here. If it’s not added to your navigation then it will only be visible here.
Assign an image to display on your cart page. Image aspect ratios here work best with portrait-oriented or square images. Landscape-oriented images, with a larger width than height, will display but smaller in order to fit in the wrapper.
These blocks will be added to the right side of the cart items table.
