Adding items to a Shopify cart automatically can seem like an arduous process, but with the help of a few Shopify Scripts, it can be made much easier. Shopify Scripts allow you to customize the item added to cart automatically, as well as the quantity and cart total. This guide will walk you through how to automatically add items to Shopify carts using three different types of Shopify Scripts.
Shopify Script Types
There are three main types of Shopify Scripts that you can use to add items to a Shopify cart automatically. The type of script you use will depend on whether you want to add a single item, multiple items, or a combination of items and variations to your cart.
Single Item: A single item script is for adding a single item to the cart, regardless of the number of items ordered. This is often used for promotions like free shipping or a fixed-price item.
Multiple Items: A multiple item script allows you to add multiple items to the cart. For example, if you want to add two of the same item to the cart, this script will add both items automatically.
Variations: A variation script allows you to add items with variations to the cart. For example, if the item has different colors or sizes available, you can set the script to add the item in a particular color or size to the cart automatically.
