Adding a sidebar or popup cart to your restaurant ordering pages

Most websites that use the WooCommerce Restaurant Ordering plugin like to display the contents of the customer's cart on the main order page, so that they can see their order and the total price as they continue adding foods.

The most effective way to allow customers to complete their orders more quickly and easily is to install theĀ WooCommerce Fast Cart plugin. This is designed to work alongside WooCommerce Restaurant Ordering and adds a floating cart to your food ordering pages.

When a customer adds food items to their cart, either a floating cart icon or an 'Added to cart' popup appears. Either way, they can use the popup cart to review their selections, make changes, and quickly complete their order.

As well as the popup cart, WooCommerce Fast Cart provides a popup checkout. This allows customers to enter their details and pay without ever leaving the food ordering page. It's much faster than using the standard WooCommerce cart and checkout pages, and can therefore increase your sales by providing better customer experience.

You can choose whether to use the popup cartĀ and checkout; or skip the cart completely and open the checkout as soon as customers add foods to the cart. This is the fastest possible way to place food orders.

Another benefit of a floating cart is that you don't need to add a sidebar to the page. This gives you more room to display your foods.
