Best Practices for Sticky Cart

Now that you're familiar with the key features of Sticky Cart, it's time to explore some best practices. By leveraging these strategies, you can maximize your sales and enhance the overall shopping experience for your customers.

1. Optimal Cart Visibility[​](https://docs.pasilobus.com/sticky-cart-best-practices#7abb6f12c26242228b25771053aad3f6)



Choosing the right visibility option for your cart is crucial. If your customers typically add several items to their cart, keeping it visible at all times might serve as a constant reminder of their intended purchases, potentially reducing cart abandonment. Alternatively, the hide/show on scroll option may be more suitable for minimalist website designs to keep the interface clean.

2. Tailored Cart Views[​](https://docs.pasilobus.com/sticky-cart-best-practices#7bc52f45645a4addb0626b17f656c8bc)



Make full use of the two distinct Sticky Cart views: Cart Summary View and Add-to-Cart View.

Cart Summary View: Besides showing a summary of added items, it allows customers to checkout directly from any page. Use this feature on collection pages and other non-product pages to offer a fast and seamless checkout process.

Add-to-Cart View: Use this sticky 'Add to Cart' form on product pages to make it easier for customers to add items to their cart, regardless of how much they scroll.


3. Strategic Cart Positioning[​](https://docs.pasilobus.com/sticky-cart-best-practices#541bf992e7804c00b7eb3c0197d088f9)



Consider the layout and design of your store when choosing whether to position your Sticky Cart at the top or the bottom of your webpage. Ensure it's located in a place that is easily visible and accessible to your customers without obstructing their browsing experience.

4. Data-Driven Decision Making[​](https://docs.pasilobus.com/sticky-cart-best-practices#9f236fd5a536421e8a880f3a9b43f974)



Sticky Cart's ability to send event data to Google Analytics and Facebook Pixel is a powerful tool for understanding your customers' behavior. Use these insights to inform your marketing strategies and improve the overall effectiveness of your store.

5. Consistent Brand Aesthetic[​](https://docs.pasilobus.com/sticky-cart-best-practices#d0f76275c1e5413ca351d53bca82646b)
