Perhaps if you show us the code you are trying to work with, we can help you with the integration.

there is nothing to show actually, I turned the box off using the admin panel, so it doesnt showup on any of the sidebars, I wanted to know what the php code is to actually put that box else where on the page, something in the line of <?php include(DIR_WS_MODULES . '/shopping_cart.php'); ?> but this didn´t work :S

So osC is going to be just a subsection of your site, but when the visitor is off of the osC pages, you still want them to be able to see some aspect of the cart, and maybe be able to click on it to return to the full osC? That's not easy. osC is really architected to own the whole show, and it's quite difficult to split off bits and pieces of it. You would have to do something to properly initialize the cart display, even if your visitor hasn't even gone into the store. You need to preserve the session information whenever the customer wanders outside of the store, or you'll lose the cart. You may have to use tep_href_link() everywhere in your site.

 

The cart display might be solvable by simply setting a global flag on your site as to whether there's stuff in the cart (initial: no) and modifying osC to update this global flag as cart contents change. If the purpose is merely to remind the visitor that they have stuff in the cart, that may be adequate. You then just display a "cart empty" or "cart full" button, per the flag, linked into the appropriate place in osC.
