User-experience improvement is a primary contribution of AJAX to the store's overall success. Use of AJAX techniques results in decreasing page loading time and bandwidth usage, resulting in two evident advantages –customers don't wait long for a page to refresh and traffic is considerably reduced.

Due to the use of powerful client-side data retrieval techniques, AJAX selectively modifies a part of the page displayed by the browser, and updates it without reloading the whole page with all its images and menus. AJAX is extensively used in the CS-Cart customer area and administration panel, making your store more dynamic and user-friendly.
