Add Cart and Order Data To A Message

Data about carts and orders can be added to the body of your messages using the tags outlined below:

Note: Cart and order tags can only be used in messages sent via a workflow that is triggered by the Cart Is Abandoned, the Order Is Added, or the Order Is Shipped nodes.
Tag Syntax Description
%%$cart.id%% Bronto's unique ID for either the shopping cart (if it was abandoned) or the order (if the contents of the cart resulted in an order).
