Improving the Store

By Darian Shimy

When an item is added to the cart in the store, the new behavior shows the following dialog asking the purchaser to continue shopping or view the cart and checkout. The old behavior sent them straight to the checkout process. We made this change to help purchasers add additional items to the cart. Some found it hard to navigate back to the campaign page while others didn’t know you could make multiple purchases.
