Shopping! Any recommendation on shopping / shopping cart experience? How about when you are buying a virtual goods? Game item?

I was working on shopping cart experience... from shopping to pay to
buy... I was browsing on the web. I noticed there is a subtle
difference between virtual goods and physical goods (other than
shipping and handling)... And, when I go into gaming environment,
its' different again... it seems like escaping the traditional cart
experience and go straight to confirmation!

what do you think? what have you seen? are there good experience you
would recommend?

Shop or Buy?

What is the appropriate button to use on the product detail page when
the website navigation asks the user to either Shop or Buy?

Of course, can we get a little more interesting and personal? For
example: instead of Shop or Buy can we use buttons that say - 'Go
and Pamper' (for a gifts e-commerce website) or 'Educate Yourself'
(while buying education books) or 'Push Limits' (while e-shopping
for BASE jumping equipment).

Online grocery shopping

Hi guys,

After the great feedback I got from my last request, i'm going again! :)

Does anyone have any feedback or insight on shopping for groceries online? I'm doing some work for a client in this area, and i'd like to get feedback from anybody on this list, particularly if they've used UK grocery shopping sites.

Shoppingcart vs shoppingbasket

Hello all,

I have short question. Do any of you know of any good argumentation for when
to use a 'shopping cart' and when to use a 'shopping basked' (both image
and/or term) in an e-commerce website.

I myself would think that the choice would depend on whether you expect
people to buy a lot (cart) or few (basket) things from your store. Any

Kind regards,

Time Machine Shopping

What do people think of the time machine interface of the following site:

I really like it and I really hate it.... I like the way it looks and feels
and also how it is playful and the way it encourages exploration, but I
can't help but think that if I was seriously shopping then this would just
annoy me.


(P.S some background music would be good... as long as i had control over it
of course)

New shopping interaction
drag and drop shopping
one page checkout

I'd like to tweak the checkout some (e.g.: "ship to different
address?") etc., but I think this is a big leap forward because it's
all visible all the time, and it looks easy and fun to use.

Kudos to They make good OS X software too, in Portland OR.

"Feel" it

The first significant custom application I ever designed/developed was for
an outfit in the New York Fashion District. The owner kept telling me if
somebody could one day create an electronic way to sell clothes, he'd be
very rich (obviously this was years before the web; TV and kiosks were what
he had in mind then).

It turns out, however, that today returns of clothes bought online reaches
40%, mostly due to dissatisfaction with the fabrics (cf.
