There are some exciting changes coming to iPaper: we’re creating a seamless transition between browsing and purchasing in iPaper Flipbooks. These changes aim to refine how products are presented in your digital catalogs’ cart, through:
We’re ushering in these changes with a revamped cart. This redesign will offer a more inspirational, and informative view of a customer’s cart, allowing for a seamless transition between browsing and purchasing.
Getting an overview of the products you’ve put in your cart, and finalizing your purchase is a key part, and often the culmination of your shopping journey. The redesigned cart feature is designed to put this in focus, by moving from the sidebar, to a dedicated cart modal. We’ve done this to make the cart more in line with established e-commerce design principles.
Additionally, this feature will inform visitors about when a product is added to the cart through informative toast-notifications, which include the ability to quickly add multiples of products to the cart.
Complementing the redesigned cart, we’re also introducing a new concept to iPaper – the ‘Product’ feature – which will bring together all of a product’s specifications, including product images and variants, into an expanded product view modal.
Using Products, you’ll now be able to group different variants, including unique product images and descriptions, under a single product.
With the introduction of product images, we’re now able to enrich the cart experience further by including these in the cart, and the toasts that display when a product is added to it.
You can see, and interact with, the redesigned cart experience live in our demo Flipbooks:
We aim to deliver this new shopping experience across multiple stages, with the first being the launch, and testing, of the new cart concept including the new, modal-based layout.
At present, it will not include the ability to display product thumbnails within the cart, or the introduction of the Product concept.
We will be inviting iPaper customers to opt-in for the new cart experience. If you’d like to participate, and be the among the first to test the new cart features, you can register your interest via the link below.
