VTEX Minicart


The VTEX minicart app is a store component that shows a list of all items that a customer added in our Checkout OrderForm API, and this app is used by store theme.

Table of Contents


This app uses our store builder with the blocks architecture. To know more about Store Builder click here.

We add the minicart as a block in our Store Header.

To configure or customize this app, you need to import it in your dependencies in manifest.json.

  dependencies: {
    "vtex.minicart": "2.x"

Then, add minicart block into your app theme as we do in our Store theme app.

Now, you can change the behavior of the minicart block that is in the store header. See an example of how to configure:

"minicart": {
  "blocks": [
  "props": {
    "type": "popup",
    "showDiscount": true,
    "labelMiniCartEmpty": "",
    "labelButtonFinishShopping": "Ir para o checkout",

Blocks API

When implementing this app as a block, various inner blocks may be available. The following interface lists the available blocks within minicart and describes if they are required or optional.

  "minicart": {
    "required": [
    "component": "index"

The minicart has as a required block the product-summary. So, any minicart block implementation created must add a product-summary as a block that is inside of minicart. (Similarly, product-summary has its own inner block structure that can be configured. There is a link to its API in the next section.)


Through the Storefront, you can change the minicart's behavior and interface. However, you also can make in your theme app, as Store theme does.

Prop name Type Description Default value
type Enum Define Minicart mode. (values: 'popup' or 'sidebar') popup
showDiscount Boolean Shows the total discount of your cart true
labelMiniCartEmpty String Text that is displayed when the cart is empty Your cart is empty
labelButtonFinishShopping String Text displayed in the finish shopping button Go to checkout

Also, you can configure the product summary that is defined on minicart. See here the Product Summary API.

Styles API

This app provides some CSS classes as an API for style customization.

To use this CSS API, you must add the styles builder and create an app styling CSS file.

  1. Add the styles builder to your manifest.json:
  "builders": {
    "styles": "1.x"
  1. Create a file called vtex.minicart.css inside the styles/css folder. Add your custom styles:
.container {
  margin-top: 10px;

CSS namespaces

Below, we describe the namespaces that are defined in the minicart.

Class name Description Component Source
