In order to make the cart icon appear or not appear you will need to track down the name of the CSS class that is assigned to it.

Step #2 – Place CSS class name in a custom function

Now that we have the name of our CSS element for our shopping cart icon we are going to want to create a custom function and use this name to trigger the option of being visible or being invisible.

Your CSS class name will be placed inside the snippet below where it says CLASS_NAME.

add_action( 'wp_footer', function() {
    if ( WC()->cart->is_empty() ) {

Step #3 – Place custom function into your site

We now have everything that we need in order to implement this custom functionality into our website.
