E-commerce includes the linking of computer systems between vendors, hosts and buyers through online modes. E-commerce allows sellers to transfer their rights to products and services to buyers. In return, buyers pay predetermined amounts as price of goods and services they are taking ownership of.
Generally speaking, a shopping cart allows visitors to make online purchases. It helps accumulate a list of items for purchase once the payment formalities have been fulfilled.
Shopping carts not only make the experience life-like (similar to that of a virtual mall), but also prove beneficial for businesses in terms of analyzing activities on their website by keeping track of items visitors pick to buy until they proceed towards the “checkout”.
