Electronic shopping carts are designed to help make online shopping a simple and enjoyable experience for website visitors.
Good shopping cart functionality allows visitors to easily browse an online store, add or remove items from a shopping cart, change quantities of selected items, compute costs of items purchased and apply appropriate taxes and shipping charges.
It is also important that the webmaster can easily add items to the virtual store, change prices over time and remove items from the inventory.
Organizations must protect their customer's privacy by ensuring that the shopping cart functionality securely authenticates visitors and handle credit card and debit card transactions appropriately.
In short, shopping cart must be simple to use, reliable and secure.
