Pretend you go to an online store, the UX is decent (well I designed it so decent is being nice, its probably bad), you add to cart, you are happy and satisfied so you click Checkout and you are redirected to another domain with a similar but different UX ... would you Bounce?

Background, naively I signed up for Shopify. They stubbornly refuse to let you edit the shopping cart experience. Not to mention that they use their own SSL certificate on their own domain for most plans so they have to redirect. So it is a one-two punch. Ugh.

I am a little committed now because I have let the project go on so long without finishing but after I get it up and running; high priority is to dump them. Not worth it!

Actually, the experience has taught me a lot. All shopping carts suck. They all have their own language to learn, they all want you to do things in their predecided form, and they all have limits that any programmer could blast past.

Kind of makes you wish there was a shopping cart solution that did not offer any UX whatsoever. Just a collection of easy to use JS API's to call from your host.
Need custom software developed? I do custom programming based primarily on MS tools with an emphasis on C# development and consulting.
