How to get number of product in cart displayed on the product page?



  • I have seen in a few apps and sites recently where the number of a particular item you added in your cart shows on that item page.

    So when you add, say tahini, to your cart, rather than an animation or a pop-up, you get the number of jars of tahini in your cart displaying.

    You can then add or deduct more of that item from the cart using the plus or minus icon.

    My site is currently being moved from prestashop, older version, to 30 bees and having a theme refresh. Have any of you seen this feature in prestashop before through a theme tweak or a plug-in?

  • @annafjmorris I have this option in my transformer theme. I took the screenshot with my iPhone. If it’s too big I’ll adjust it when I’m back on my desktop.

  • I think what @annafjmorris is looking for is to have the amount of a given product already in the cart displayed on the product’s page. So if a customer adds a product to their cart, keeps shopping, and then somehow returns to the same product page they can see that the product is already in their cart (and how many) without having to check the cart itself. This makes it less likely that a customer will double-order (and then return) items and also just makes it a more pleasant shopping experience for the customer, IMO.

    Is this what Transformer is doing? If not does anyone know of themes that do this, or if it is even possible to do within a PS1.6 / 30bz theme?



  • @dynambee Oh I see. I don’t know if my theme has that option but I went back to the page and the product does not show that I’ve added it to the cart. I’d like that option, too!

    Very sorry, Anna.

    Yes, but also it’s a way of signalling that the item has been added to the cart in the first place. On the standard theme you can choose between when someone adds a product to the cart they go straight to the cart page or they stay where they are and don’t go to the cart page. I really don’t like option 1, and I hardly ever see this anymore on webshops. Option 2, however, really confuses our customers, they click to add something to the cart and “nothing happens” (I know that a number is added to the cart box at the top of the screen but many people don’t see it).



  • I think there still needs to be an “add to cart” button on the page somewhere. Just a set of -/+ buttons doesn’t follow the layout expected by most customers and it seems like it would be nearly as confusing as nothing happening at all after “add” is clicked.

    Have the -/+ buttons and then an add to cart button under them. When items are added to the cart there should be some sort of indication that the “add” has been completed, of course. There are two standardized ways to do this:

    • Option 1: An “item added” confirmation pop-up where users can choose “continue shopping” or “proceed to checkout”.

    • Option 2: Customers are redirected to a separate page that confirms that items have been added to their cart, and then other items commonly bought together with the added item are shown.

    Amazon does it the second way. Sites that don’t have Amazon’s level of automation & product combo knowledge can do it the first way. Showing no confirmation would be very confusing to customers, for sure.

    Let me show you what I mean in more detail:

    That’s on the tesco app but I have seen it on websites too.





  • YES! that seems to be it: https://addons.prestashop.com/en/registration-ordering-process/26099-1-click-quantity-change.html

    So, now… prestashop modules on thirty bees? Whats the score?


  • administrators

    Hmmz, those kinds of modules are always a bit hacky. Not every front office and theme has the same structure. If you are going to use a custom theme, you might want to ask the developer if that is supported or otherwise ask the community here for support if you’re stock. It shouldn’t be too hard to accomplish though.



  • Just using the default theme with css changes. Do you think in the long term these will work with 30 bees? I am reluctant to make a change that my store will rely on that might stop working in a year or two :/
