In order to make purchases from Kmart.com, every user needs to have an account with the site, which enables Kmart to track the order and manage payment information. After creating an account, the user browses through the various product categories to locate the item she wishes to buy. Before she is able to add the item to her cart, she must enter her ZIP code to view the available shipping options. This is important because some items are only available in stores, while others are only available online. Once she chooses the appropriate shipping option, she may add the item to her cart and continue shopping or begin the checkout process.
During the checkout phase, she is able to apply a coupon code to the order to receive promotions such as free shipping or a discount on the sale price. After selecting the necessary shipping methods for all items in the cart, she must then enter her payment information and confirm her billing and shipping address. The final transaction provides her with an order number she may use to track the status of her purchase.
