Why is the Cart Icon Not Showing up in My Top Navigation?

After I design a website, my clients can still work with me by hiring me on an hourly basis. This blog+video is a direct result of a request my client had after I completed her site. I had created an e-commerce site for her that had a shop with multiple products. My client wanted to have the cart icon show up for her. But she found that to be not a simple click and activate situation. There was one more step to take care of.

If you are using any of the Brine Family of templates and have a product page but your cart icon is not showing up in Design and then Site Styles, then follow the simple step in this video to resolve it.

1| Go to Commerce > Checkout

Uncheck “Express Checkout”.

2| Refresh page

You should now see the cart icon show up a) either in the navigation bar or b) as an option under Design> Site Styles> Header: Layout

3| Customize the icon or text

Change the color, size or type of icon as you like.

1| Go to your panel Commerce > Express Checkout. Then uncheck this option.

2| b) Click the drop down arrow and change from “Hide” to a position, for example “Top Right”.
