Working on a project where a client is keen to implement a shopping
cart design as per: http://www.houseoffraser.co.uk/ . I think there
are probably issues with the attached basket design, namely that it
breaks the expected behaviour of 'buy'.
Standard interaction = click buy, go into cart.
House of Fraser interaction = click buy, ajax magic adds item to
basket at top of page, then user needs to click checkout up by basket.
I'm guessing the intention is to encourage users to continue shopping
and only have to go to basket when they check out, but I'm worried
that messing with the standard design pattern will lose the client
Jared - I'm sure you have a strong opinion on this, would love to hear
it : ) Have you done any testing on this type of cart?
