The eCommerce Cart API provides functionality for creating and managing carts, as well as for creating a checkout based on an existing cart. The cart is the first phase of an eCommerce purchase flow, followed by checkout, then order. A cart holds information about items for purchase, prices, discounts, site details, and more.

A cart can be created either by using the createCart() function, or by adding an item to the cart.

Estimate the cart's totals (including shipping costs) using the estimateTotals() function.
