When a customer goes through the full shopping list what if he likes an item and does not have the add to cart option it seems a bit unorganized.

Keeping a big add to cart option will make it easy for the user to buy that thing with just a tap, with this feature the total value of the cart will also be displayed on the top to keep a check on the total bill of the cart. Exactly working like a trolley when you go to a grocery store.

This makes the customer end the wait for their delivery and relax without the worry of delivery time.
