Shopping Cart

Allow to add products to your cart from within 8SELECT widgets

Many widgets allow a product to be added directly to the shopping cart.

Widgets that allow to add products to the cart will call the function _eightselect_shop_plugin.addToCart(). This function can then directly contain the code to add something to the shopping cart or call another function that is already implemented in the shop frontend.

To identify a product variant that should be added to the cart we currently only have the sku available. For sku, the same value as in the product export is used.

// 8.SDK Web configuration for shop's cart API
<script type="text/javascript">
  window._eightselect_shop_plugin = window._eightselect_shop_plugin || {};
  window._eightselect_shop_plugin.addToCart = function (sku, quantity, Promise) {
    // the function has to return a promise
    // you can use the injected Promise or use your own polyfill
    // add your cart logic here
    // this is just an example - shopApi is something you actually have to implement
    return new Promise(function(resolve, reject) {
      var response = shopApi.add2cart(sku);
      if (response === "OK") {        
        return resolve("done");

      return reject(new Error("add2cart failed"));

// 8.SDK Web
<script type="text/javascript">

The script is needed on all pages where widgets are used.

A Promise object is injected into the function. A polyfill is provided for older browsers. This means that this does not have to be covered by the shop.
