For most commerce sites, you do not want to lead the customer on or p*ss the customer off. Therefore, letting the customer know as early as possible is the best practice. If you can determine the location beforehand (e.g. using the methods that @skwotz outlined), then you can filter products accordingly. But sometimes sites cannot tell where the customer ...

I don't think there is any great benefit in having both "Buy Now" and "Add to Cart" options, if the only difference is that one takes the customer straight to the checkout. I think it's an unnecessary complication that forces the customer to think about which route they should follow. The traditional paradigm of adding products to a cart and then checking ...

It's best to let people know this as soon as possible. It is very disappointing to get halfway through check out only to realize you can't get it shipped to where you want. A lot of large ecomm sites have a modal when you first arrive at the site to select a country. http://www.louisvuitton.com/ I've seen ones where they bring you to a browse only section ...

I would use a vertical draggable separator that reveals the front and back sides as you drag it with your mouse or finger. Something like this: Edit: it depends on what you mean by "shop index page". If it's an array of dozens of items, then the best option would be to have front & back views side-by-side. If, however, I assumed correctly and the ...

I don't think this is an area where UX design patterns are going to be helpful, because this isn't a well defined enough user flow that a reasonable pattern can emerge. That said, if I were designing this app and looking for helpful examples, I would assemble a taxonomy of something like the following sites: Banking and payment sites which offer ...

I would suggest showing both a front and back view of the shirt in one photo/view.

Add to cart is a good option if you would like to sell multiple items at one purchase. This strategy works well with physical goods in order to increase the total amount of acquisition and reduce the price of delivery cost for the company. I think that if the user clicks on add to cart, the page should provide some extra books that are similar to the ...
