Shopping Cart Design

Designing and developing a shopping cart based site is, undoubtedly, one of the prominent fields of web design. This is not surprising, since the requirements for this type of design are more sophisticated than those of an information resource web site, for example. What would the difference between custom shopping cart web design service and a regular web design / development be?

First, it is essential to understand, that the quality of the shopping cart design is crucial for its' owner, probably, more than for an owner of a non-commerce-oriented site. Every lost visitor is a potentially lost buyer. Therefore, a shopping cart design should be both beautiful and neutral in its' look and flexible in its' use, with a logical distribution of content and with easy navigation. This doesn't mean that the more primitive the design is – the better. While creating a design for the online shop, a shopping cart designer should be able to maintain a certain golden ratio. Obviously, a shopping cart design should not be overloaded with heavy graphics, since shopping cart design company or a designer have to take into consideration that there are still customers whose internet connection might not be that fast, and not everyone has patience to wait until the site loads. The owners of the online shop would not want to loose their potential customers because of these reasons. It is recommended that the shopping cart design would rely more on the elaborate CSS styling rather than the extensive use of the images in the XHTML itself. The most popular usage of images in shopping cart designs is usually limited to these page elements:

  • Logo of the shop
  • My cart
  • Navigation
  • Order buttons
  • Additional elements on the page of the product

By limiting the graphic elements to the above mentioned, we relieve the site from being “too heavy” to load fast, and we will draw the attention of a client to the main message of the site – the product. This way one can also reduce the chances of loosing the customers to a minimum, and, if the CSS styling is applied professionally, the site will not look unattractive and amateurish.

What else is essential to take into consideration while designing a shopping cart website?
Not so long ago, Javascript - and especially Ajax – based technologies started gaining popularity among the developers. When developing shopping cart designs, Ajax is a great advantage over the shopping carts, where each step performed by a visitor requires page refresh. With Ajax-based shopping carts, a visitor can add the product to the cart without having to wait until the new page loads, which makes the site more user friendly for the customer and saves his time.

What people say:

  • Will Bowen, International Bestselling Author and Speaker - Happy This Year!
    I have worked with several web site builders over the years and Elune Art is by far the best! They far exceeded my expectations, they were quick to respond whenever there was a question or an issue, and they finished their work on time. I plan to use them again and I encourage you to use them as well.

  • Dr.Nicole Joseph
    There is nothing more important than the face of your business, that's why I'm glad I hired Elune Art (and worked with Victoria Costa) to design and host my professional website. From the beginning Victoria and her staff were both friendly and professional, working with me on every aspect of my design, including budget, helping me translate my vision into reality. At first I was hesitant to work with a company who was not local to me because I assumed that I would have to meet many times with someone personally to get the site I wanted; however, I found Elune Art to be fair, honest, openly communicative, and non-pretentious. They delivered my website on-time and under budget!! In the end, I can honestly say that the website far exceeded my expectations!! Victoria went above and beyond to add details that were both original and practical and, most importantly, in the spirit of my vision. I am so proud that my site is the face of my business. All my colleagues are envious and assume that they could not afford such a site because it looks like I paid 10xs as much as it cost. I strongly recommend Elune Art for excellent website design, good value, and fabulous customer service!

    I looked for months before finding someone to produce a new website design for my company SliQTools. I not only wanted a fresh, clean and stylish design but I wanted one that took into account SEO aspects. Elune Art fitted my requirements perfectly. Vicky came up with a great, unique and modern looking design in a very short time. I was able to replace the pages on my existing site without losing any position in search engine ranking. I've now used Elune for three web designs and found them to be professional and a pleasure to work with each time. I'd definitely recommend their services.
  • Dan Guy
    I've used Elune Art for several different designs now, and each time they've consistently provided an extremely high quality product for of a fraction of the cost of other design agencies I've used in the past. Each design has been very clean and optimized well with full browser support and a minimum of fuss to plug into existing code. Vicky is very responsive, and provides valuable conceptual advice as well as timely status throughout all phases of the project.
