In follow-up from my above post, I started doing a lot more digging into the AJAX ‘Add to Cart’ function that SHOPP has as standard to try and figure out a way to make it more noticable to the user when they add a product.
You can see what i came up with by going to http://herbalskateboards.com and adding a product to your cart.
You get an elegant popup in the centre of the page informing you that the product has been added and (if you didnt notice) there is a summary of your cart at the top of the page.
It uses jGrowl as the base and is put directly into the script that runs the AJAX function using just one line.
Hope you all like it – feedback would be appreciated! Hopefully this makes the ‘Added to cart’ function a little more obviouse to the user. :)
