640 ‘Cart’ Design Examples

Also referred to as: Shopping Cart

What’s this? Here you’ll find 640 “Cart” full-page screenshots annotated with research-based UX insights, sourced from Baymard’s UX benchmark of 185 e-commerce sites. (Note: this is less than 1% of the full research catalog.)

If the Shopping Cart step is not carefully crafted, a large proportion of users will be off to a very bad start, or may not even initiate the checkout but simply abandon their items at the cart step. For example, our quantitative study reveals that 23% of all US online shoppers have abandoned orders in the past quarter solely because they weren’t given an upfront estimate of the total order cost.

  • Several sites however have a shopping cart design that has severe usability issues. For example, 58% of sites have a cart design that actively hinders users trying to use the cart as a comparison tool (which is a problem as many users use the cart as “a tool to temporarily save items of interest”). And 86% of sites make it difficult to update cart quantities (50%) or remove items (36%).
