“Effortless E-Commerce with PHP and MySQL” Chapter 9 Bonus Pages

November 9, 2010

In continuing my posts of extra bits from my Effortless E-Commerce with PHP and MySQL book, here are five pages intended for the end of Chapter 9, “Building a Shopping Cart”. This chapter is from Part 3 of the book, which covers the example that sells physical products. The particular extras in the PDF are five ways you could expand upon how the shopping cart functionality. This includes how you would make recommendations, alternative ways to handle shipping, and how a more efficient database could be had by using VIEW tables.
