Day 6 of 30 days of Ecommerce testing is:
If you were testing a “my cart” webpage, what three test cases would you perform first? Share them!
I had some experience with this when I was testing our store ahead of the TestBash Brighton pick ups. I also like to randomly test carts on different sites to see how they compare. I’m not really one for test cases so these are more ideas that might inspire you in your own test case creation.
My approach was:
- Try selecting a greater quantity of items than we had available. Once I got to the cart, was I told that we didn’t have that quantity available and I could order X (the quantity in stock) instead and the price was adjusted accordingly.
- On eBay recently, I was trying to buy a large quantity of different items. I tried to add 5 different items to my cart, I was on to my 6th when I noticed that my basket only had 4 items. I tested this a few different ways once I noticed it. I explored what happened if I was purchasing everything from the same seller, 5 different sellers, the same item in a quantity of 5 etc.
- I always always try negative numbers. If I see an update cart option I will always see if I can purchase a negative amount of items.
