Hey All,

I am looking for some examples of really well designed shopping carts
– I have been through a few dozen large e-commerce sites today, and
having a very hard time finding examples that I would consider "good".

Thanks!

Hello, Thomas! So, let me ask you: what is -- in your opinion -- a
"good" shopping cart?

There are many things that a "good" cart should be. Attractive,
Intuitive, and Functional would be three words I would use to describe
a good Cart.

There are many carts out there that I would describe as functional,
but not many that are intiutive or attractive, IMO.

I like the bananarepublic.com one.

the one thing that drives me nuts about it is that initial interaction
makes it seem like it is a drawer that opens and closes, but when you
click to "re-open" it, you leave the page.

I did an improvement on that experience for an amex site:

see

www.jdgimzek.com/blvd.html

it's a little complicated to see the "add to cart" action:

FIrst off, type 'polo' in the search field (lefthand side) to see
interactive results - you can click the "i" icon on the red shirt to
see the expanded view, then once that is open, click "add to compare"
icon to add the shirt to the comparison tray at the top [fake ajax
magic!].

Finally click the "view prices and buy" shopping cart icon to see the
individual product page, where you can Add to Cart with more AJAX
action - unlike on BananaRepublic.com, clicking the visual cart
indicator on the page OPENs the cart, rather than sending you off to
the cart page as it does on BR.com
