How to Share a Cart

1. Manage Groups for Shared Carts

A useful function of ShopBlue is the ability to share a cart with an individual or group of your choosing. The first step to sharing a cart is creating a group to share your cart with. To begin, hover over the Shop tab in the navigation menu prompting the shop menu to pop out. Next, hover over “Admin” and click “Manage Groups for Shared Carts” (Figure 1).

8. Share Your Cart With Others

When you have selected the cart you would like to share, click the box next to “Share my cart with others.” Next, click the dropdown box and select your desired group. To share your cart with your group, click “Update and Unlock.” This will allow others in your group to see the cart and make changes (Figure 8).

9. Edit Cart As Needed

If you would like to make a change to your cart, you must first click “Lock to Edit Cart.” This stops anyone in your group from working on it while you make changes, so make sure to click “Update and Unlock” when you are done (Figure 9).

10. Send a Message to Submit Cart

Only the owner of the group can place the order. When your group has decided that the cart is ready to submit, send a message (Step 8) to the group owner letting them know that the cart is ready to submit. Select Update and Unlock in order for the owner to place the order. The owner must lock the cart before they will be able to proceed to checkout and place the order (Figure 10).
