Summary

In this chapter, we have looked in detail at the order process on a number of popular, successful e-commerce websites, and discussed their methods. We have used these observations to detail a process of our own, which we will use for our framework. This now gives us a clear plan of what we have left to do:

  • Implement shipping and tax handling
  • Implement payment processing
  • Implement delivery address handling
  • Implement order processing, fulfillment, and administration
  • Implement voucher code discount provisions

We can now continue developing our store, with a better understanding of what we are going to do, and why.
