A shopping cart on a website is important for many reason these being :
- Having the shopping cart implemented into the website makes it fast and easy for the user to select and buy the products that they want to buy without having to use 3rd party websites to make the transactions.
- Also with the shopping cart it will allow the user to pick from a variety of payment methods that they can use from, which ever they feel safer with or prefer to use.
- The shopping cart also helps the owner of the website know which products people are coming to the website for. Therefore helping to decide which products are best to keep and which to replace.
- The shopping cart allows the user to add items to their cart and carry on shopping knowing that they have saved that item to buy later.
