Online shopping carts: The state-of-the-art
"Shopping cart" is a term that has come to mean one of two things: first, an online ordering system that is separate from an e-commerce website, and second, a store-building system that can be used to build and manage both an e-commerce site's web pages and its ordering system. We first describe the feature typically included in all carts-an ordering system. Next, we discuss the additional features included in store-building systems. Finally, we briefly review the shopping cart market itself through an examination of the types of systems vendors were offering at the time this paper was written.
