Basket page tracking request

Recommended reading 

To track a basket page, provide a list of products in the basket along with the currency, quantity and price.

Note: In Optimizely Commerce, a basket is known as a shopping cart or a cart.

The quantity and price elements should be the same as the ones the user is viewing. So if there is a discount, provide the discounted price.

Price is the price per unit. For example, if a basket has 3 units, and each unit costs £10, the value of price is 10.
