The most common behaviour in responsive e-commerce sites is to show the shopping cart icon on the top (right) with the number of items added to it. Since we are dealing with smaller space, we should prioritise and keep on the screen only the necessary elements. You can see an example in www.nike.com or www.bol.com. The behaviour when you click usually is ...


I suppose that the responsive behaviour is due to allow usage on desktop as well on mobile devices. Hence I would show for the mobile version a really reduced version of the shopping cart. It should be reachable very fast, so I would place it on the top and provide an indicator as feedback when an item was added to the cart. Below is an example from the ...


Assuming you want to do right to your customer (and store) by making the payment and shipping flow as short and hassle-less as possible, I'd offer them the option to choice as soon as possible A. 'Quick pay purchase' with PayPal (Or 'x-click purchase', or..) B. Manual check-out (or whomever you like to call the 'native' option) If they choose A, you can ...


I would absolutely save the users cart.

Then - you have a few options: Save the cart - and re-instantiate the cart when they come back ...


General rules of thumb: it should not save any personal info unless I asked it too (such as credit card info--people don't trust a site that is storing their personal data without their permission) it should save non-personal info for my convenience (such as my shopping cart--if it's saved, I'm more likely to finish my purchase)


For what it’s worth, the plus sign is probably more universally understood than the concept of shopping cart / basket / bag. It does not necessarily mean ‘Add X to Y’, however, but ‘Increase Amount of X’ – by 1 if not indicated otherwise – which may include automatic addition of another X to Y, especially if there is already at least 1 X in Y. Where amounts ...


While the plus icon may be widely understood as "add", I would say it's a big risk to rely solely on it without any context. If localization is not feasible, my inclination would be to test an icon that shows a plus or arrow with a cart next to it, and also make this a very strong CTA using color/size/layout.
