eBay India starts a shopping cart
eBay India has incorporated a shopping cart into its site. This will allow sellers to add items into a ecommerce style shopping basket from multiple sellers and pay for these all at once. This is a great improvement on the current situation where items have to be selected and bought at the same time, there is no ablilty to interchange items, unlike in most websites.
I have not tried out the basket as I don’t want to buy anything, so I will be curious to find out how it works for auction items. Also what happens when an item is in the shopping basket but is not yet paid for – can other people buy it or is it reserved?
