Send to cart after adding to cart

After adding an item to the cart a buyer seems to be sent back to the product page, which looks exactly the same as it did before the item was added. There is no "view cart" button. I see that i can add one to the listing using a short code but seems a bit strange that this is not built into the plugin.

Is there a simple way to do this so a "view cart" button only shows after someone adds something to the cart?

Thanks
Paul
