You browse for merchandise in various categories or search for specific items. Once you find something you want to buy, you add it to your electronic "shopping cart," and continue shopping. When you're done, you review the contents of your cart, deciding whether you want to purchase all of them, or just a few. Your purchases are then totaled. Now it's time to check out.
To buy the items you selected, you fill out a form, providing information such as your name, e-mail address, shipping information, and credit card number.
