A Step-by-Step Guide on how to add text to your Shopify cart page

We recently came across a request to add a custom message to the Shopify cart page.

This could be important if you want to communicate a message to a customer before they checkout.


Method 1: Edit your Liquid Page (Advanced)

You can achieve this by editing the “cart.liquid”. This is found under your theme in the edit html/css section.

You can then just add the line of code wherever you want the message to show:

<b>Free Shipping on orders over $50!</b><br/>

That’s it. You can move the code around depending on where you want your message to show. Be careful though as breaking your cart page will result in lost sales. We always recommend to backup the theme first so you can revert if necessary.


Method 2: Use an App

If you’d prefer to use an App, checkout Kartify. It can allow you to customise your cart page including adding custom messages, banners, buttons, trust seals, promo/discount codes, upsells and more.

You can get it on the App store here: Kartify
