Mals Cart Quantities

When I receive my confirmation of an order, from Mals, it adds up the prices of all the items but it doesn't give me a "quantity of items" total. This would be very handy for me to have.

Is there any way to do this? I can't seem to find that option in the cart set-up on Mals.


RE: Mals Cart Quantities

If using Mal's e-commerce default account settings, you should receive a confirmation of your orders by email stating the quantities of each item.

For Example:

As a test, I just purchased 1, 2, 3, and 4 items of the products shown on the home page of the XLEcom's Mal's Cart demonstration website (Mal's Cart Demo) using the test credit card number 4111 1111 1111 1111.

Below is the email order confirmation stating the quantities. If your email order confirmations are not stating the quantities, you may want to pose this question directly to Mal via his website.

The following page shows another example: Testing the Multiple Price Options utility within XLEcom

Mal's cart quantities

Sorry Sam, I probably didn't make my question clear enough, the individual totals for each item do get put on the order form. What I was wondering was is there a way to get a total number of all the items (added together) at the bottom of the order form.

RE: Mal's cart quantities

I actually don't know if that could be done. This is controlled by the shopping cart service. So you will need to check your account's cart setup at Mal's website.
