Shopware 6 Cart Settings Overview

The Shopware 6 cart settings page lets you configure some basic shopping cart functions associated with the product detail page. As usual, you can apply changes globally or per sales channel. In the second case, the settings for an individual sales channel overwrite the ones applied globally.
