We're looking at adding this functionality to our basket to allow users to clear all products in their basket. Is this standard practice or is a 'Save for later' button or wish list function a better approach?
If the user is in their basket then this would be one of the functionalities users currently expect.
In the basket allow the user to:
- change qty of their items
- see the number and qty of items in the basket
- see the sub-total of their items
and, if you have their shipping address, it would be nice to have an "estimated tax" summary
Since users expect to be able to remove items from their shopping cart having a one-click option is an excellent idea.
And then, obviously, allow them to return to the shopping area, and continue through the purchasing process.
