Just what is a shopping cart anyway?

If you’ve ever bought anything online, you already know what a shopping cart is. A shopping cart is software used in eCommerce that allows your customers to purchase your goods and services online. 

What does a shopping cart do?

The shopping cart software tracks the items purchased, keeps a running total of the order, adds shipping and handling where applicable, calculates taxes, and adds in service fees or surcharges. Your clients enter payment details like their credit or debit card number, expiration date, security code, and shipping address.

Most importantly, the shopping cart communicates the payment information to International Bancard card through a secure, fully encrypted, PCI-DSS “handshake” and tells us to bill your client’s card and deposit the money in your bank account.

International Bancard payments processing is compatible with hundreds of shopping cart providers.
