Adding Cart Items to Your Emails

Description: The setCartItem function allows you to pass the product data (eg: product name, image, price, etc.) to our system. You will need to call this function for each product in your visitor's cart. After this has been integrated, it can be used to display the user's actual cart items in the abandoned cart email they receive.

In the lefthand navigation, go to Settings > Designs > Themes and Styles
Under Go to Folder, select templates/common-html5 
Select view_cart.html 
Search for <!--START: SHOPPING_CART_ITEM→ in the code
Insert the following snippet directly below <!--START: SHOPPING_CART_ITEM→
Be sure to replace YOURSITE with the name of your site as it appears in your site's URL.
<script type="text/javascript">
  _cartstack.push(['setCartItem', {
   'quantity' : '[ITEM_QUANTITY]',
   'productName' : '[ITEM_NAME]',
   'productImageURL' : 'http://YOURSITE.com/thumbnail.asp?file=[THUMBNAIL]',
   'productPrice': '[ITEM_PRICE]'

How Do I Test This?

To test your cart items integration, abandon a cart on your website (make sure you've added the "%%cartitems%%" variable to your email template). Then log into your account and go to the Reports >  Send Queue report. Then click on the view icon (see screenshot below). You will see the actual email that will be sent out, so you can make sure the cart items are included.
