Managing Widgets in Quick Shopping Cart

You can add widgets to an area along the side of your Quick Shopping Cart® storefront. Widgets are self-contained applications.

Using these widgets, from your Quick Shopping Cart storefront customers can search for products, view your Featured Products, and view content you created using HTML.

Each time you add, remove, or reorder widgets, you must re-publish your storefront to display your changes live on the Internet. For more information, see How to publish .

Some of the original Quick Shopping Cart® templates don't support widgets. To find out which templates currently do, see Which templates support widgets in Quick Shopping Cart?
