Introducing List Export

Shared on 11 March 2023, by Mike

Share-A-Cart is all about sharing store carts and shopping lists. You can already share a shopping list created from vendor with a single click with our extension or by using the product search feature on our website. We also have integration with Shopify which adds a button straight to the check out flow for you to share your haul with friends.

Today we're adding an often-requested sharing feature – cart export to Excel. To export a list load it on the website, for example: AKGUX. Scroll to the bottom and click on the "List Actions" button. This will expand into several items including "Export". Click export and you'll get an Excel spreadsheet with the contents of the cart including information about the items in it. The exported file will contain the vendor item id, item title, quantity and price. There will also be a link to the item on the vendor site.
