Dear Friends,

 

Do you want to attract more potential buyers to your store? Our Cart Sharing add-on gives you such opportunity.

 

The CS-Cart Cart Sharing add-on allows your customers to share the shopping cart link via messages or post it in social networks, so their friends can view the same cart and buy the products without taking extra actions.

After your customers added products to cart they go to the “Cart” and see “Link to the cart” below the list of cart contents. They copy it and share with friends, relatives via an email, message or even post it on Facebook, Twitter, etc.

When your customers share that link, anyone who clicks on the link will start out with a shopping cart ready for purchase or checkout page, depending on what setting you chose.

Interesting addon. A few questions:

  • Does the shared cart also share the original customer's ship-to information?
  • Does the shared cart notify the original customer when their items have been purchased by another customer?

Without that functionality, this seems like an incomplete solution for the stated purpose.

 

I can see this addon being much more useful as a way to offer pre-built product bundles. The links to these "bundles" could be advertised on the storefront as a quick way for customers to order groups of commonly ordered items (ex. back-to-school supplies). However, there isn't currently a way to manage more than one shared cart. Could that functionality be added? I would definitely purchase a version of the addon if it did that.

 

Just to clarify - the existing "Buy Together" addon isn't well suited to what I have described. "Buy Together" combinations can only be advertised at the product detail. The resulting combination appears in the cart as a single line item that can not be modified (individual products can't be removed from the combination or have their quantity adjusted).  

 

thanks for considering the requested modification

Glen

Hello, Glen!

 

The shared cart does not share the original customer's ship-to information and does not notify the original customer, because people buy products not for that customer, but for themselves. We have the Gift Registry add-on that allows your customers to create events and add a list of products they wish to get from your store.

This is an interesting idea. I will discuss it with the manager. Thank you.
