The Cart Sharing add-on gives your customers an opportunity to share the contents of their cart with family and friends.
Has it ever happened to you that you want to buy something, but you don’t have enough money, or you/your friends think about getting a gift for the holiday? With the Cart Sharing add-on, your customers can easily request a gift by sending a link to their shopping cart to friends and family and show what they really want.
Since your customers are most likely to share the products they really care about, we’ve made really easy for them to share a link to their shopping cart in just a single click.
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.
How it works
After you have installed the add-on you need to open its Settings page. There, you will see 4 available settings:
— “License key” - Enter the license key to activate the add-on.
— “Link to” - Choose the place your customers will be redirected - to the cart or to checkout.
— “Clear Cart” - If you select “Clear Cart”, the cart will be emptied before the products are added.
— “Link title for social networks” - Enter a name for the link that will be displayed in the post on social networks.
If you use CS-Cart Ultimate edition, you can configure the settings of the add-on for each storefront individually.
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.
Below you can see a screenshot on how the posted link looks in social network.
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.
So, with the CS-Cart Cart Sharing add-on, you’ll sell more for every shopping cart your store has.
