Cart normalizer

Cart normalizer

The normalizeCart function is used to map a BigCommerce Cart into the unified SfCart data model.

Parameters

Extending

The SfCart structure is returned from all Unified Cart Methods such as GetCart, AddCartLineItem, and UpdateCartLineItem. If the SfCart structure doesn't contain the information you need for your Storefront, you can extend its logic using the addCustomFields API. The following example demonstrates how to extend SfCart with a parentId field.

export const unifiedApiExtension = createUnifiedExtension({
  normalizers: {
    addCustomFields: [
      {
        normalizeCart: (context, cart) => ({
          parentId: cart.parent_id,
        }),
      },
    ],
  },
  config: {
    ...
  },
});

You can override the normalizeCart, but it's also available to override the smaller normalizers such as normalizeCartCoupon, normalizeShippingMethod, normalizeCartLineItem.

Source

The normalizeCart function consists of several smaller normalizers such as normalizeCartCoupon, normalizeShippingMethod, and more.
