simpleCart(js) requires using jQuery, Prototype, or Mootools. No extra configuration is needed as long as one of them is included on the page

Quick Start

Add the script to your page and set your checkout method

To sell items from your “Shelf”, just add some classes to your html like this:

Awesome T-shirt

Add to Cart

Then just add classes where you want your totals to show or have your checkout buttons:

 items - 

That’s it!  See below for options you can set, and take a look at the checkout methods and different customizations available.

You can set/change simpleCart options at any time:

	option1: "value" ,
	option2: "value2" 

Here are the possible options and their default values:

	// array representing the format and columns of the cart,
	// see the cart columns documentation
	cartColumns: [
		{ attr: "name", label: "Name"},
		{ view: "currency", attr: "price", label: "Price"},
		{ view: "decrement", label: false},
		{ attr: "quantity", label: "Qty"},
		{ view: "increment", label: false},
		{ view: "currency", attr: "total", label: "SubTotal" },
		{ view: "remove", text: "Remove", label: false}

	// "div" or "table" - builds the cart as a 
	// table or collection of divs
	cartStyle: "div", 

	// how simpleCart should checkout, see the 
	// checkout reference for more info 
	checkout: { 
		type: "PayPal" , 
		email: "[email protected]" 

	// set the currency, see the currency 
	// reference for more info
	currency: "USD",
