  • Example Output


  1. Make sure you have Easy Digital Downloads installed.
  2. Upload edd-empty-cart to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  4. Navigate to Downloads -> Settings -> Extensions (tab) -> Empty Cart (section) in your WordPress dashboard.

Should I use this if I use Vendd, which already includes these settings?

You can. EDD Empty Cart will override Vendd’s empty cart settings automatically. EDD Empty Cart offers slightly more control.
