The cart page is an extra step that can increase abandonment. Cashier for WooCommerce plugin provides a side cart widget that can make access to the cart very easy. This plugin also provides a cart icon clicking on which users can quickly review what’s in their cart in a sidebar popup without actually visiting the cart page.
No configuration is required actually.
The cart icon will be automatically displayed on all pages, except the checkout page.
The sidebar will open up when the user adds a product to the cart from the shop page or individual product page. All via AJAX…no refresh, thus speeding up the checkout process.
Your customers can also click on the shopping cart icon, to open up the sidebar cart pop-up to review their cart items.

- View all coupons applied
- Add a new coupon, remove a coupon
- Modify product quantity

This option helps users to access their cart from anywhere on the site, reducing the checkout time and increasing conversions.
