Add to cart for a product table is one of the main parts of an eCommerce website. Since no product table in an online store is complete without a cart, the WooCommerce product table plugin comes with a default shopping cart option. In this tutorial, we are going to show you the different options to create or change the default settings of a cart in your product table.
What is a shopping cart?
WooCommerce comes with an online shopping cart option. It provides the necessary features for customers to make a retail purchase from your website.
Some shopping cart designs are quite simplistic and only add the bare essentials, like products and a checkout page.
Other shopping carts go the extra mile and include features for you to provide your customers with an improved shopping experience.
The WooCommerce product table is one of the plugins that gives you the ability to make a professional shopping cart. This option is simple steps and with just a few clicks.
