What would you like to do?
WooCommerce - Show number of and total
<a class="cart-contents" href="<?php echo wc_get_cart_url(); ?>" title="<?php _e( 'View your shopping cart' ); ?>"><?php echo sprintf ( _n( '%d item', '%d items', WC()->cart->get_cart_contents_count() ), WC()->cart->get_cart_contents_count() ); ?> - <?php echo WC()->cart->get_cart_total(); ?></a>

If I'm using a child theme, where do I need to place the above code? I'm using Canvas theme.

Thanks so much! I wish they would improve their documentation to make this stuff a little easier to find...

Hi, tnx for the code.
how can I hide the word "item"/"items" and make it display only the number alone?

I need to use the total number of items in cart for my new shipping method, but I dont understand how to use this for that. Using only $woocommerce->cart->cart_contents_count doesnt seem to work?

Perfect! Thanks a million!

This is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!

thank you so much boss! feeling happy..:-)


Can this apply in email template?

Hi ! How can I get the number of items of Current Product in cart at product single page?????
like, in my website
I need to show it in black strip at the right box


I use this way

global $woocommerce;
$count = $woocommerce->cart->cart_contents_count;
if ($count > 0) {
echo '';
echo $count;
echo '';

Hello, I hope this is in the right thread...I'd like to display the cart total in the menu bar, but on both a main AND subdirectory site. Woocommerce is installed on the main site: - from where it will be possible to buy a book.

I've had to create a mirror install in a sub-directory (which looks identical) in order for my client to have two distinct blogs. This is effectively a one-page site at

The problem is that when you move to the second blog, you lose the cart. I know I can just have a straight link to the cart on the main site, but I lose the total in cart.

I'm look to put Your Cart - $20.00 in both menus. Can I do that?

Thanks for any and all help!


WOW someone out there thought that a plugin would be better, this works perfect.

does not work as a dropdown

Doesn't update on cart page while updating products. need to refresh for new updated count.
