More information:
This code provides a complete (simple) shopping cart. It isn't advisable to have more than about 50 products, simply because it will become difficult to maintain. The code does not use a database, but relies on the items being entered as variables in the code. This makes for simple maintenance and ease of use.

This is a good demo of techniques typically used in live shopping carts, such as allowing the user to view the current basket and add/remove items from it. Additionally, you can turn this into a production-level shopping cart very fast, but you will have to read the documentation carefully.

To get this cart up and running, you must: 1) create a web application for the shopping cart, since it uses application variables defined in global.asa, 2) Enable write permissions on the directory for the Internet Anonymous User.

There is a live version of this site running at http://www.support.co.za/cart/. You can try it out if you like.
