Shopify Mini Cart Functionality

We were contacted by an agency to make multiple tweaks on a Shopify Plus store and collaborate with them to implement certain functionalities.


One of the requirements was to implement mini cart on Shopify Debut theme.

Which service they chose

We suggested them to choose our Shopify Theme Tweaks service to implement different functionalities. Majority of our clients choose 10 tweaks to tweak their Shopify stores as the tweaks are valid for 30 days and offers them a 20% discount as well.

How the work was carried out

First, Ajax function was added to make sure that the user stays on the same page after they add product to their cart. Then, the function to display a mini cart dropdown was added. The dropdown displays for 6 seconds when the product is added to cart and this gives enough time to the user to see what's been added to cart and what they want removed. The mini cart displays the image, title and variant, price, quantity of each product with "Remove" link in order to remove the product from the cart. In addition to this, number of items and subtotal is displayed on the mini cart and are updated dynamically.


The mini cart was ready in just 5 days and tested extensively on desktop to make sure it's working properly. The mini cart automatically hides for mobile according to the specifications of the client. We are a trusted partner to many agencies who are looking an additional hand to help them make theme tweaks and creating landing pages for their clients' Shopify or Shopify Plus stores.
