Updating a cart

Use the POST /v1/shoppers/me/carts/active resource to add products, coupon codes, billing/shipping addresses, and offers to a customer's cart.
All of the resources contained in the Cart can be leveraged to modify specific cart data elements. See Update current cart query parameters for more information.
Required: A level 3 API key, a legal/contract amendment, and PCI documentation are required to pass customer credit card information through the Cart resource. Contact your Account Manager if you are interested in this capability.
