A shopping cart is the interface between a company's website and its deeper infrastructure, allowing consumers to select merchandise; review what they have selected; make necessary modifications or additions and purchase the merchandise. A shopping cart for an online retailer is a piece of software that facilitates the purchase of a product or service. It accepts the customer's payment and organises the distribution of that information to the merchant, payment processor and other third parties.
A shopping cart typically has three key functions:
1. It stores product information 2. It's a gateway for order, catalogue and customer management 3. It renders product data, categories and site information for user display.
An online shopping cart is like the tangible ones used at supermarkets, but it's also the shelves, building, signage, cash register and often the point of sale terminal relaying card transaction information back to the merchant acquirer. Shopping carts need to be integrated to a payment gateway, where each gateway has its own method of connection. Effectively, each shopping cart needs to be programmed and tested with that gateway.
