This documentation is not using the current rendering mechanism and is probably outdated. The extension maintainer should switch to the new system. Details on how to use the rendering mechanism can be found here.

Configure multiple carts

wt_cart 1.4 allows you to set up multiple carts, i.e. you can have more than one cart on your site. Just create the pages you need for the checkout process and insert the wt_cart plugin “wt_cart : cart”. After that you have to create new TypoScript extension templates for each page tree containing your set of products. Then define within each TS extension template the constant

See the screenshot below for an example. The products on page “Catalog Cart 1” (uid 11) will be added to the wt_cart plugin on page “Cart 1” (uid 10). Products on page “Catalog 2” (uid 18) will be added to the wt_cart plugin on page “Cart 2” (uid 17). The only thing you have to configure is the TS constant on page uid 11 and page uid 18.

Configure tax classes The whole tax system has changed with wt_cart 2.0. We have removed the literal strings “normal” and “reduced”. Now the tax system is based on numbers (classes) which is cleaner and offers much more flexibility. Furthermore there is also the possibility to handle tax free products. The following example is taken from the TypoScript constants which ships with wt_cart 2.0.

plugin.wtcart {
  # Enter the tax value for this tax class item (e.g. 19). Value will be displayed.
  taxclass.1.value = 19
  # Enter the tax rate for this tax class item (e.g. 0.19). Used for calculation.
  taxclass.1.calc = 0.19
  # Enter the name for this tax class item (e.g. normal). Value can be displayed. = normal
  # configure 2nd tax class
  taxclass.2.value = 7
  taxclass.2.calc = 0.07 = reduced
  # configure 3rd tax class
  taxclass.3.value = 0
  taxclass.3.calc = 0.00 = free
