Shopping Cart Thumbnails

The thumbnail images in the shopping cart give customers a quick overview of each item. However, for products with multiple options, the standard product image may not match the actual item purchased. If the customer purchased a pair of red shoes, ideally, the thumbnail in the shopping cart should show the product in the same color.

Thumbnails for grouped and configurable products can display either the image from the “parent” or associated “child” product in the current store view.
