When adding a product to the cart programatically, the product is added with a price of zero. Having read other questions on here with similar requests, I have added in $this->quote->collectTotals(); which doesn't appear to fix anything.

Without doing this as an observer, or using $this->cart->save(); (which is now deprecated), how can this be resolved? My code is below.

  • @RohanHapani, thanks for the suggestion. Yes - however, \Magento\Checkout\Model\Cart is deprecated, says to use \Magento\Quote\Model\Quote instead, but doesn't appear to add the price to the item correctly. Commented Oct 30, 2018 at 9:29
  • But, that code is working properly. I tested in latest version 2.2.6 also. Commented Oct 30, 2018 at 9:31
  • @RohanHapani - You are correct, however I've noticed that the price comes out as zero when doing $this->response->setRedirect($this->getUrl('checkout'))->send(); after (which refreshes the page). If I manually refresh the page after it loads, the price appears. Is there a better way instead of setRedirect which will ensure the totals are updated upon refresh? Commented Oct 31, 2018 at 14:04
  • Hi , I am also facing same issue, while adding products to quote from REST API. Loading quote using \Magento\Quote\Api\CartRepositoryInterface. After adding successfully to cart, the last product showing zero totals. Thanks in Advance Commented Jun 23, 2020 at 17:28

namespace Ktpl\Addtocart\Controller\Index;
use Magento\Framework\App\Action\Context;

class Customaddtocart extends \Magento\Framework\App\Action\Action
    protected $resultPageFactory;
    protected $checkoutSession;
    protected $_productloader;
    protected $cartRepository;
    protected $productRepository; 
    protected $_messageManager;

    public function __construct(Context $context,
        \Magento\Catalog\Model\ProductFactory $_productloader,
        \Magento\Framework\View\Result\PageFactory $resultPageFactory,
        \Magento\Checkout\Model\Session $checkoutSession,
        \Magento\Quote\Api\CartRepositoryInterface $cartRepository,
        \Magento\Catalog\Api\ProductRepositoryInterface $productRepository,
        \Magento\Framework\Message\ManagerInterface $messageManager,
        array $data = [])
        $this->resultPageFactory = $resultPageFactory;
        $this->checkoutSession = $checkoutSession;
        $this->cartRepository = $cartRepository;
        $this->productRepository = $productRepository;
        $this->_productloader = $_productloader;
        $this->_messageManager = $messageManager;

    public function execute()
        $post = $this->getRequest()->getPost();
        $addtocartid = $post['addtocartid'];
        $qty = $post['qty'];

        $addtocartid=explode(",", $addtocartid);
        $qty=explode(",", $qty);
        $quote = $this->checkoutSession->getQuote();
        for($j = 0; $j < count($addtocartid); $j++)
            $_product = $this->_productloader->create()->load($addtocartid[$j]);
            $quote->addProduct($_product, (int)$qty[$j]);


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
    <action name="addtocart/index/customaddtocart">
        <section name="cart"/>

You need to reload the quote from a DB to have all collectedTotals flags empty there.

/** @var \Magento\Quote\Api\CartRepositoryInterface $quoteRepository */
$quote->addProduct($product, $request);

See Magento\Quote\Model\Quote::collectTotals and Magento\Quote\Model\Quote\Address\Total\Subtotal::collect
