The one place that I have seen this approach was in an tablet application designed for shop staff to place orders on behalf of a customer. In that context, the order details including a list of items added and the total value was given prominence and displayed all the time. The sales assistant could then browse/search for products through a panel that opened ...

There are two cases here, Users can select items and the cart then groups them to offer discounts / combos as applicable. There are certain predefined combos, with limited variation possible to be selected by the user. Users would be more interested in the items they want to eat and not precisely looking for combos or at times interested in the combos ...

Probably not Remember that the user's perspective is different from the app developer's perspective. What is the user looking for? I would guess that your users will want to look at the menu and order items they like. This is certainly what they would do at a restaurant. Any configuration would take place after they make the initial selection (eg "do ...

The solution to this question would ideally be affected depending on the engineering constraints, the size adn scope of the task, and the stage of the product, but it is common to err on the side of simplicity when coming up with a design solution. While fundamentally it isn't confusing for the user to configure options while in cart view, there are limits ...

In general, the add to cart button is meant to enable users to buy multiple items with a single checkout action. When you enabled buying one ebook at a time, this option was redundant, however, now it does enable: purchasing multiple items using the same payment method and same shipping address (or same email address for download links) reducing shipping ...

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 ...

Actually many sites nowadays provide this feature. And it's useful not because it's a trending one but people feel that it saves them time as it avoids minimum of 2 page reloads. But the idea of having add to card as very small text is a bad one. It would be better if both are buttons. 1. Add to cart can be bigger and the primary option 2. Below that can ...

Let reason prevail Let's say you have two alternatives: Option A - Shopping cart (see Amazon.com) where there is a delete link for each item in the cart. Option B - Shopping cart where each item has a checkbox, and you have Select all and Delete all buttons somewhere. You could also include a delete link in addition to the checkbox for every item, but ...

It sounds like overkill rather than something that is actually bad UX. It depends if what you are selling involves users buying a lot of items at once (eg this may be applicable if you were selling small components -say screws and bits of metal). I'd look at evidence from what your users actually do: a - do you users typically put large numbers (say 10+) ...

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 ...

You can see many other e-commerce websites that show the shopping cart in the main navigation. Go check out e-bay, Walmart and other shopping giants. Since the shopping cart is the gate to the ultimate process of the e-commerce -that is actual purchase- it's quite important to have it presented at all times in a prominent place. The industry's practice is ...

It's hard to think about this UX without knowing what exactly you're selling, but in principle what you're describing works just fine. For example, if you are selling a set of complex services which require an inquiry before sale, it's reasonable to enqueue a set of items for batch or package inquiry: This might work for other complex/packaged products ...

As was hinted here before, it really depends on what the users are used to. As a consumer in Israel, I'm used to seeing prices that include VAT (because that's the law in Israel). Recently I came to the US, and no one here shows you the VAT before the check-out. Even e-commerce sites in the US show the VAT only at the check-out. Though irritating, I soon ...

Yes, yes and yes! 37% of our customers would not proceed with the purchase once they would find out that VAT was added at the later stage. We (my company) used to sell cheap trips around Europe to students. At first we thought that excluding VAT is a good idea, but shortly realised that we are loosing a lot of customers. After surveying those who never ...

This depends entirely on your target audience. There are two trains of thoughts, but both have ultimately the same outcome: Tell them there and then on the product page. In detail: Audiences who pay VAT Most consumers will not want to be surprised by VAT at the checkout (it is a hidden cost) and yes this would definitely reduce the number of abandoned ...
