I’m researching shopping carts for a client and found this great blog post from Lorelle On WordPress curating a post from Smashing Magazine, Fundamental Guidelines of E-Commerce Checkout. The original post explores e-commerce websites and the “real time” experience of their shopping carts.
They found that about 59% of potential customers leave their shopping cart during their check out process. They share their findings in the original blog post.
However, Lorelle on WordPress shares several links of the most popular ecommerce WordPress plugins, which she doesn’t recommend. So, if you’re looking for a shopping cart that will actually work for your site, check out the two blog posts.
