Best Fly to Cart and Side Cart WooCommerce Plugin

A customer of ours is launching a WooCommerce site soon, and I’ve been testing out some “Fly to Cart” and “Side Cart” plugins for them. By default WooCommerce has a very basic checkout experience where oftentimes it’s not clear that I’ve actually added anything to the cart at all. Here’s what “fly to cart” looks like in practice:

Here’s an example of a side cart in WooCommerce:

WP Clever’s free sidecart plugin works beautifully out of the box but doesn’t include the animation effect. To get the “fly to cart” animation effect, you’ll have to pony up $19 for Xootix’s premium version of Sidecart for WooCommerce plugin.
