Feature Request A Quick-Buy Option

As I'm getting my forum members to use this more, one request that comes up is a quick-buy option. I apologize if this was already addressed elsewhere, or if it's already a feature I've somehow missed.

Currently, the steps involved are:
  1. Go to Shop
  2. Select Category
  3. Select Item.
    1. This leaves the Category page.
  4. Click Purchase on the Item page.
    1. This creates the Purchase Item pop-up.
  5. Set Quantity and click Add to Cart.
    1. This refreshes the Item Page.
  6. Go to Cart.
    1. This leaves the Item Page.
    2. This is a second location to change quantity before purchasing.
  7. Click Purchase.
    1. This leaves the Shop. If a user wants to go back and purchase another item, it's another series of clicks.
That's a lot of steps, essentially forcing the user to say five times, "I want to buy this." This is not a make-or-break feature, but a QOL improvement that I think could encourage more interaction with the Shop, which in turn leads to more purchases. I can understand why some of the steps are here, of course, but would it be possible to add a 'quick buy' option in the Shop that would bypass some of these extra steps, and either A) immediately purchase 1 of the item (with a confirmation pop-up) or B) immediately add 1 of the item to the cart? Alternatively, if Quick-buy isn't an option, some of these steps are redundant with each other and could probably be phased out.

Ideally, if a user wants to purchase five different items in the same category, I'd like them to be able to at least add all five to the Cart without leaving the category page.

On the whole, this has been a fantastic product for me as an admin, I'm now just looking at how it feels from the user perspective.

I’ll put this as On Hold so it can be looked at, but I just wanted to let you know users can buy multiple items at once by repeating steps 3-5 before moving on to step 6.

Of course, if they navigate back to the shop or category. It becomes time-consuming and frustrating when a user wants to purchase multiple different items, to the point where many of mine only do 3-4 before deciding to come back later. The average user would otherwise be getting 15-20 items in the same session.

If a user wants to buy five items, it's 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 2, 3, 4, 5, 2, 3, 4, 5, 2, 3, 4, 5, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7.

I'd like it to be more like 1, 2, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 6, 7.

As I said, it's not broken, this is just a quality-of-life improvement that I think would smooth the process.

I agree and second this feature request. It would be a lot easier to purchase items if you could add them to your cart from the shop page instead of having to go into the items' properties. To add to this, I think you'd also need to see the stock amount from the shop list if this feature was added.
