Adding a pop-up shopping cart to your existing ShopFactory shop:

=> At the left menu, select "Use Buy now buttons and links

Important: Add the script for pop-up shopping cart in your ShopFactory website (it can be added website-wide or on a page html).
This function allows customers to stay on your site when they add products to your shopping cart or search for a product.
Your pop-up shopping cart complies with pop-up rules and will NOT be blocked by pop-up blockers.
To make this work you must copy the pop-up shopping cart code and add it to your web-site or blog pages.

You can adjust the elements displayed in your pop-up or embedded store at Popup/Embed display.
