add items to cart without leaving the catalog page

Hi,

I would like to have an ajax enabled store, where when a customer adds an item to the cart, it refreshes the minicart only via ajax, and does not interrupt the current catalog shopping page. Is this currently possible? If not, is it planned?

Thanks,
Scott

I’ve seen that functionality on one of the stores mentioned in the blog, but I’m guessing it was custom code ..

(click the green button with a + on it if you don’t speak their language .. heh)

May be a redirect through the cart, also .. not sure if its using a true Ajax request.

You can change the setting in the Admin > Configuration > Sales > Checkout > Shopping Cart, then select ‘NO’ for ‘After adding a product redirect to shopping cart’

That’s awesome.  But still...is there any plans for an ajax enabled minicart?  The gap.com like animated mincart (top right corner of gap.com) is an awesome little feature to have because not only does it keep the user on the page.  The animation makes the customer/user aware that the product is now in the cart and can click “checkout” at the minicart if ready to complete the trans.  Sounds lame yes...but it absolutely has value.

I think that Prestashop’s cart is what you are looking for. It an other open source E-commerce solution and you can try it here : http://www.prestashop.com/demo/

I don’t really know how it works on Prestashop because I’ve never look at this part of the code, but maybe that it could help you to make it working on your Magento Project.
