Shopping Cart is the order request feature in neoCatalog Server. With this feature, you can select your colorways and add them as items in the Shopping Cart to create an order request. When checking out the order, the acceptor is going to receive an email with all requested information, and the option to accept the order from the email. The order request process is managed from the request page. When the option is enabled, after the log in a new cart icon next to the logout appears one cart icon.

This page is optional and an Administrator of your neoCatalog must activate it in administrations preferences.
