While shopping, you can edit or delete the items in your cart. Before the transaction is finalized, you have another chance to confirm or change your purchases. Once you have reviewed and confirmed your purchase items and your account information, you receive a confirmation page to print or save to a file.

Each online store's online shopping cart works a little differently. Amazon.com has an Add to Cart button, while LLBean.com's button says Add to Bag. Once you add an item to your bag on LLBean.com, you choose either the Continue Shopping button or Check Out. On Amazon.com, you continue shopping without a button by navigating to the next item of interest, but you can also choose the Cart button to see a list of your selections or Proceed to Checkout to buy the items.
