Is it possible to not refresh the page when we add a product to the cart ?

This will need to be a custom solution for each design, because there could be few places on the page that adding to cart would affect.

For example, in default theme it is number of items in the top header link, and the mini-cart sidebar.

Other designs might include for example cart-sensitive up-sells and cross-sells blocks, which may need to change.

When the whole page refreshes, these issues are resolved automatically.

Hello,

There are several solutions for adding to cart using AJAX. One of them is Instant Cart Extension. http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/instant-cart-extension.html

It makes Magento shopping fast and highly enjoyable with Web 2.0 feature which allows adding products to cart and removing them from cart without boring page reloads.
Instant Cart allows to add any type of products by providing the possibility to choose configurations directly in the AJAX pop up.

We hope this solution will work for you.

Hi!

I think it is most wanted feature now days. So, it would be great if Magento team provide this in the next release.

It is very time consuming each time Magento takes us to shopping cart when we click on “Add to Cart.” The button itself says “Add to Cart,” not “Add & Show the Cart.”

I hope to find this feature built-in in next major Magento release.

Regards!

It’s absolutely possible, even more than expected if you use paid extension such as Magento Ajax Cartby leading extension providers such as Aheadworks, Magestore,.... Their support team can also help you is there is any problem as conflict.
