A cart contains a list of the products that a customer adds to the cart while browsing your catalog. In the context of a cart, a selected product is called a cart item.
A cart item identifies the product, the product price, the quantity selected, and the total price for the quantity selected. The cart displays a running total of the cost for the selected products plus the calculated tax.
