Important: You must download and activate the WooCommerce plugin, before using Caddy.

Install Caddy from within WordPress

  1. Visit the plugins page within your dashboard and click the ‘Add New’ button.
  2. Search for ‘Caddy for WooCommerce’.
  3. Click the install button.
  4. Click the activate button.
  5. Find the ‘Caddy’ menu within your dashboard and change your plugin settings.


How do I add or replace the ‘Cart’ and ‘Saved’ menu links?

Search for the “Caddy Cart” widget and add it to your header.

Or, you can use our included shortcodes using the Shortcodes in Menus plugin and then adding the following Caddy shortcodes:
[cc_saved_items text=’Saves’ icon=’yes’]
[cc_cart_items text=’Cart’ icon=’yes’]

The “text” value is the text that you want to appear in your menu.
The “icon” value (yes or no) will display a heart icon for the “Saves” link and a cart icon for the “Cart” link

The plugin is okay but only problem is auto opening the cart after adding a product can't be disabled which is annoying as customers do not want to see their cart after adding every products.Otherwise the plugin is great but still had to uninstall.

I loved the way this looked and the upselling functionality. Still haven't found anything to replace it that I like as well, but it doesn't work for me. It makes my site throw a 403 error for several minutes after every update. That can be when I update the site or when someone checks out.
