Hey, @AccessoryLaneFG!

Thank you for getting back to me with the screenshots! That's a great help in understanding what you're looking for.

Let's start with changing the wording "Cart" to "Basket". In order to change this, you'll need to access the Language Editor for your theme, locate the areas where the "Cart" is mentioned, and change those to say "Basket" instead. Here are some steps, and a screenshot from my own shop to help show how to access and use the Language Editor: 

  • First, head over to your Online Store> Themes section of your admin.
  • Locate the theme you're working on, and click "Actions".
  • On the drop-down menu that appears, select "Edit Languages".

  • Locate the areas you want to change where "Cart" is mentioned, and change the wording. You can use the search bar to search for "Cart" and see every instance it's used in the Language Editor!
  • Once you're finished making changes in the Language Editor, be sure to click save on the top right to have the changes reflected on your live site. 

Customizations such as changing the cart icon to a basket, and changing the navigation from left-oriented and vertical to horizontal along the top would require some code customizations to your site. There are quite a few themes that come with horizontal navigation along the top by default, and I'd be happy to provide some suggestions if switching themes is something you'd consider! It does look like you've put in some work on the Pop theme already though, and it is absolutely possible to have these changes made on it! 

For changes like these, I'd recommend hiring a Shopify Expert to assist. Shopify Experts are trusted, third-party agencies and freelancers, who are available for hire by Shopify Merchants. You can visit their site here to contact an Expert, or post a job request and receive quotes from eligible Experts.

I hope this helps you get the changes you're after completed, and feel free to reply back here if you have any troubles with the Language Editor, or if you'd like to discuss some other themes that may potentially suit your needs!
