Help: Your Shopping Basket

How it works

Every time you press the "Buy Now" button on an item on our website, the item will be added to your shopping basket.

It works just like a basket or trolley in the supermarket. All the items you have selected are collected together for your convenience, but there is no obligation to buy until you go to the checkout to complete your purchase.

Where to find it

At any time, you can view the contents of your shopping basket by clicking "View my basket" at the top of our website.

What you see

You will see the title, quantity, unit price and total for each item in your basket, as well as the estimated shipping charge and order total (the final amounts will be confirmed when you proceed to the Checkout).

How to change

Adjusting the contents of your basket is easy. You can change the quantity of any given item by clicking the blue "+" or "-" buttons that appear next to it, or by simply deleting the current quantity displayed and entering a different number.

You can also completely remove an item from your basket by clicking the red "remove item" button that appears underneath the title.

Saving your basket

If you have a customer account with The Nile and you are signed in, the contents of your basket will be saved for next time if you leave the website.

If you are not signed in but you have cookies enabled on your browser, the basket contents will also be saved. However, you will not see them if you next visit the website from a different location or browser, or if your browser cookies are cleared.

The next step: How to complete your purchase

When you are ready to complete your order, simply press "Proceed to Checkout" at the bottom of the shopping cart view. You can also proceed straight to checkout at any time by pressing the blue "Checkout" button in the top-right corner of our website.
