Last week we changed the way the shopping cart works on walkingsticksonline.co.uk. Shopping for walking sticks online has never been easier.
As you can see on the screenshot above, you click on the Buy Now button as usual but instead of this taking you off to the shopping cart it adds the item to the drop-down cart instead. So the item is added to the cart while you stay on the page and the cart floats down so that you can see what you have added.
We you click on to a different page to look at some other walking sticks or accessories, the cart minimizes into the top bar, but if you click on the little down arrow in the top right where the Total in £s is displayed and where the Checkout button is, the cart will drop-down again.
This is much better we feel, mainly because you are free to browse around the website adding items to the cart and staying on the website until you want to checkout. At the checkout you can then change quantities, remove items and then choose your shipping.
Its like the Amazon cart, you don’t have to worry about losing the stick you were looking at, you can just add it to the cart and then remove it later if you change your mind.
Anyway, we hope you like it and find it easier to use with less clicking back and forward from the cart to the website. If you spot any problems, please let us know and we will fix it, thank you!
