Great Shopping Cart and E-commerce Website Features

What are some features of great shopping carts and e-commerce websites?

1.  Steps in Checkout

Clearly show the steps needed to complete your checkout process — along with the buyer’s progress.

2.  Save Shipping Address

Save all of the “ship to” addresses each of your customers may use, to help them save time.

3.  Have a “Use Shipping Address as Billing Address” Option

The addition of this simple little check box to automatically populate the Billing Address fields is a favorite with buyers.

4.  Enter a Discount Code

Let your buyer enter a discount code early in the process to see the discount.

5.  Check Inventory

Let buyers check inventory right on each individual product page, before they hit “add to cart.”

6.  Shipping Options and Delivery Dates

Let the buyer look at the cost of shipping options early in the process.  Show the estimated delivery date with each shipping option.
