Combined Items

Whisk supports intelligent algorithm for combining similar items into one, to improve shopping list experience.

Items like 2 eggs and 28g of eggs yolkcan be combined into one item 4 eggs.

Automatic combination of items is enabled by default, you can pass combineItems = false to disable it.

Supported Retailers

Not every retailer provides us with information about inventory, so for some retailers we can't match store items and create a cart. You still can check out items for these retailers, check landing url checkout section.

You can find if we support matching for a retailer and able to create a cart here in the retailer’s list in Store Inventory column.
