The primary task of an online shop is to get the user to purchase something. It is this reason why elements on their web pages such as descriptions, price information, and related products should be well thought out and must be purposeful. Among these page elements is the "add to Cart" or "add to basket" button, which is essential in its role as an important call to action.

In this collection, you will find some examples of good Add to Cart buttons from e-commerce websites around the world for your inspiration and reference.

Something out of a film like Minority Report with holographic touchscreens, or so advanced of an A.I. (artificial intelligence) that the application anticipates solutions without the user having to do much else.

In reality the kinds of products, websites, and applications that survive and continue to be effective are those that that focus on the user experience.
