Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9957864A1] In a communications network used for electronic commerce, a merchant server sends to a customer terminal data on items available for purchase. The data is displayed at the customer terminal, for example using a web browser. The customer selects items to be purchased and a cumulative list of the selected items (the "shopping basket") is generated at the customer terminal automatically and independently of the merchant server. The cumulative list may be generated by a program encapsulated, for example as a Javascript (Trade Mark) function, in the data downloaded from the merchant server.
