Shopping baskets - I deign to call them carts - are fairly easy in 
PmWiki. I based one on the freely available wfcart class and it only 
took a couple of hours, including checkout and sidebar "module".

Here's my checkout page.

  (:DisplayCheckout updatelabel='Update' :)
  (:if ! equal {$CartItemCount} "0" :) (:ClearCart:)

I do things this way:

  (:AddProduct prodcode=BLA price=45.67 desc='Blah product' label='Buy 
  (:RemoveProduct prodcode=BLA label='Remove BLA' :)
  (:EditQuantity prodcode=BLA :)


Cart total: £{$CartTotal}
Cart items: {$CartItemCount}
Cart quantity: {$CartQuantity}

Kinda makes the equivalent in OScommerce, Joommla!, etc, look a little 
over engineered :-o
