What is a shopping cart and why should I create one?

If you want to sell multiple items on your website, you need shopping cart software. Shopping carts let your customers:

  • Browse items.
  • Select products for purchase.
  • See shipping, taxes and any other costs before completing their purchase.

Shopping cart providers typically work with payment gateways and merchant services to process payments. When you choose a shopping cart with PayPal built in, it’s not only easy to set up, it also makes it easy to get paid.
