Allowing customers to buy their favorite products
Have you ever wondered what happens when you click the Buy Now button on an ecommerce website to buy your favorite product? Enter shopping carts. An ecommerce shopping cart is a software or database program that allows customers to buy products or services online. It accepts customer payment and shipping information. It facilitates the delivery of this information to payment processors, merchants, and other ecommerce third-party providers.
Generally, once the customer clicks on the "Buy now" button, the website immediately takes them to the shopping cart where they're able to see their order information, enter their credit card details, billing and shipping information in a secure manner. Then, the customer clicks on the "Check out" button and their credit card details are processed by the website's payment gateway. Upon a successful authorization by the payment gateway, the order is considered complete and an email is generally sent to both you and the customer. All of this takes place within seconds.
