Techopedia explains Electronic Shopping Cart

The visual interface is a key electronic shopping cart component. Electronic shopping cart designs are built for seamless integration with a website on a hosted platform, allowing users to view the shopping cart as an element of a larger online shopping environment. Included in the visual interface is the cart page, where a user may view selected items.

An electronic shopping cart also has a back end system that provides actual functionality by linking a customer to an array of product entries from a database. A user may access product pages, submit payment information and enter other details that allow a business to complete a transaction. Typically, an electronic shopping cart also includes tax and shipping calculations. Also, back end data is used in secure ways to prevent hacking.
