Context

Add a product to your shopping cart when you need to buy or rent that product from the company you are browsing.  

As you add items to your shopping cart, the number of items in the cart increases in the header bar of the ecommerce website. 

Only unique or non-bulk products appear as single items in a shopping cart.  Bulk products, such as consumables or scaffolding, which has multiple parts, always appear as single cart items.  

For example, if you rented scaffolding that consists of 100 pieces, the scaffolding would only appear as a single item in the cart, not 100.  However, if you were to add three bulldozers to your cart, they would appear as 3 items, not 1. 

You can remove an item from you cart at any time.  See: “View the Contents of Your Shopping Cart in Ecommerce” for more information.
