Turn On and View Shopping Cart Alerts

Set up notifications to alert users if there are any external shopping cart connection errors or warnings via the dashboard or email.

If you have integrated an external shopping cart with Infoplus (e.g. Shopify), you can turn on Shopping Cart Alerts to notify users of any warnings or errors (e.g. an Order could not fulfill because the Carrier in the Shopping Cart is not mapped to an Infoplus carrier).

You can be notified via Email as well as with a summary on your Infoplus Dashboard. Here's a sample Shopping Cart Alert Summary on the Dashboard.

If a Shopping Cart Error occurs, a Business Transaction record will be created which indicates what happened and allows you to run the transaction again after fixing the error.
