If a customer adds a product to the shopping cart and you didn’t configure the redirect to the cart, the customer will stay on the same page and just see this message “you added the desired product to the shopping cart”. Sometimes this issue causes the customer to be tired and may leave the site.

Then change the “After Adding a Product Redirect to Shopping Cart” option to yes.
