Quick Add to Cart is a handy snippet that allows users customize a product directly from the products gallery, and add it to a shopping cart.
The standard UX for product galleries is that a user clicks on a product, then navigates to the single product page. The user is expected to select options, and finally add the product to the cart. Nothing is broken in this process. However, a returning customer, who’s familiar with the products line, may find it handy to select and buy a product directly from the gallery. That’s what this little plugin does.
It provides a “quick add to cart” panel while users interact with a product preview. The plugin reduces the number of steps that separate a user from purchasing an item, and potentially increases the site conversion rate.
The plugin uses an unordered list HTML structure to make the tool work. You’ll need to add this code and styles to your website for complete functionality. The tool also comes with nifty animation so it works well and looks nice, too.
