How to Add Cross Sell Products Inside Kadence Theme Side Cart?

Kadence Theme has a very nice side cart feature which opens up after someone has added product to the cart. It looks nice and clean but currently it shows nothing but the cart itself. So, if you want to know how to add cross sell products inside Kadence Theme Side cart then this tutorial is for you.

What is a Cross Sell Product?

Cross-selling gives you an opportunity to show your customers products that will their meet additional or complementary needs which are unfulfilled by the original product.

For example, if you sell a band T-Shirt then the cross sell product can be a band cap or a hoodie. The main goal of the cross sell product is to point your customers to purchase something more in a moment when they are already in cart page. Therefore, those cross sell products are shown in the cart page.

How to Add Cross Sell Products Inside Kadence Theme Side Cart?

Step 1: Add Cross Sells Products

So, let’s start by adding some cross sell products. Go to Products >> All products >> Open a product >> Choose Linked products and search for suitable products inside “Cross-sells products” box. See the screenshot below.

Step 2: Add cross sell products inside Kadence side cart

There are two ways to do that. First, copy the code here below inside your functions.php file. Do that only if you are using a child theme. Otherwise, after theme update the modifications will be lost.

Second option is the one I prefer. Install a free Code Snippets plugin and add the code to the code box over there. That ensures that all your custom functions will be OK even after the theme update.

So, grab the code here below.

add_action( 'kadence-after-side-cart', 'woocommerce_cross_sell_display' );

Step 3: Add additional CSS

That ensures that cross sell products columns are shown in two columns and that the “You may be interested in…” heading looks good.

/* Sets columns to be 45% wide inside the side cart */
.drawer-inner .grid-lg-col-4 {
    grid-template-columns: 45% 45%;
}
/* Makes columns and row gaps smaller */
.drawer-inner .grid-cols {
    column-gap: 1rem;
    row-gap: 1rem;
}
/* This modifies the "You may be interested in..." text above the products
.drawer-inner h2 {
	font-size: 20px;
	font-weight: 400;
}

Useful tips

Here are some of my favorite Wordpress tools

Thank you for reading this article. I hope you found it helpful as you build your own websites and e-commerce sites. Here are some tools I use as a Wordpress developer and enthusiast that I hope you’ll also find helpful.

These are affiliate links, so if you do decide to use any of them, I’ll earn a commission and this helps me create these tutorials and make Youtube videos. But in all honesty, these are the exact tools that I use and recommend to everyone, even my friends and family.

Themes: For the last couple of years I have two go-to themes which I use for every kind of projects. Those two themes are Blocksy theme and Kadence Theme. On this site and my Youtube channel you’ll see a lot of tutorials I have made about them. If you would like to get a 10% discount for both of them then:

Contact forms: There are hundreds of contact forms out there but Fluent Forms is the one I like the most. If you need a 20% discount then use this link (save 20% coupon is WPSH20).

Gutenberg add-ons: If I need a good Gutenberg blocks add-on then Kadence Blocks is the one I have used the most. You’ll get 10% discount with the coupon SIMPLEHACKS here.

Website migration: While building a website you probably need a good plugin that can help you with the migration, backups, restoration and staging sites. Well, WpVivid is the one I have used for the last couple of years. If you use this link along with the WPSH20 coupon you’ll get 20% discount.

Woocommerce extensions: There are a bunch of Woocommerce extensions that I really like but the one that stands really out is Advanced Dynamic Pricing. Once again, you’ll get a 20% discount if you use this link here (save 20% coupon is WPSH20)

Web Hosting: For getting started, I really like A2 Hosting. They have the dedicated and fast Wordpress hostinh and support has also been fast and responsive. If you’re more tech savvy and want to have a really fast managed cloud hosting then I recommend Cloudways. (Btw, this site is hosted in Cloudways.)
