Simple Online Store

In the Product Landing Page project you implemented a landing page to provide your users with information about a product and to hopefully increase your sites conversion rate.

The goal of the Simple Online Store is to give your users the capability of selecting a product to purchase, viewing purchase information, adding it to an online shopping cart, and finally, actually purchasing the products in the shopping cart.


  • Starting out you may implement your product inventory as an array of Javascript objects if you are developing in Javascript. For other languages feel free to choose the in memory solution of your choice.
