This effectivly created a "buy from advert" function which is called a Slingshot. This allows a buying intention to be registed at point of purchase and means a product can be added to a basket from an advert without any checkout function required. This external add to basket system is safe and secure. It remebers details across all implementations and this means that users stay signed into the add to basket feature so subsiquently can add products to basket ready to buy from adverts or website in one click with thier chosen retailer.
