The Shopping Cart

Purchasing Product

From a product detail page, Figure 1, the end user can add items to his cart.  The item number, description (1A) and pricing carry over to the shopping cart.   If the item is currently on sale, the sale price will display (1B) in a prominent way and the regular price will be crossed out so the shopper can see their savings.  Selecting ‘Add to Cart’ (1C), add the item to the shopping cart.  

Step 1. View Shopping Cart

Our standard checkout procedure is only 4 steps.  The first is to view the shopping cart.  From here, Figure 2, the user cart the end user can change quantity or remove a line item (2A), continue shopping, calculate freight charges (2B), or proceed to with the secure checkout.

Our system can communicate with FedEx or UPS and pass along the number of boxes and the weights and dimensions of each box and determine the freight rate based on the service selected.  However, there must be a way programmatically that we can determine this information in order to get accurate shipping charges.  This proposal includes two hours of programming time to implement basic packaging logic.  If additional time is required, it will be mutually agreed to and will be billable at $100/hour.

Once the user is satisfied with their shopping cart and clicks “Secure Checkout,”[1] they enter the checkout “wizard,” which is a quick two-step process where they enter shipping and billing information (or retrieve that information from a saved account) and lastly review and confirm their purchase. This part of the system is standardized, and although changes to the process can be made per client requirements, these changes will be quoted as additional development work and are not included in the standard package.

[1] Secure Checkout uses industry standard 128 bit SSL encryption, using a certificate provided by GeoTrust. Various options for this are available, with different setup and recurring charges. Contact your CCI sales rep for more information.
