What is My Cart?
In online marketing, a shopping cart is a piece of e-commerce software on a web server that allows visitors to an Internet site to select items for eventual purchase. The software allows online shopping customers to accumulate a list of items for purchase, described metaphorically as "placing items in the shopping cart" or "add to cart". Upon checkout, the software typically calculates a total for the order, including shipping and handling (i.e., postage and packing) charges and the associated taxes, as applicable.
What is My Wishlist?
A wish list is a list you can set up and add items you might eventually like to buy. It's sort of window shopping but you can save the items you like and have the option to save those items for future purchase. This feature allows you to save the wish list forever and you can go back and add it to your shopping cart if or when you wish to order.
