Super useful. Fills a weirdly necessary niche (why don’t amazon/walmart have this feature built in???)

How do I get the Share-A-Cart browser plugin?

The plugin best suited to support Shopify is listed below. You’ll be taken to the relevant browser extension store or mobile app market where you can install it (there’s no sign up required):

Share-A-Cart for Everything external link

Share-A-Cart supports sending and receiving lists made for Shopify originating from any Shopify implemented store. Additionally, enjoy sending and receiving carts from 74 major retailers including Amazon, AliExpress, Costco, BestBuy, Wayfair, Walmart and many more. See a full list of supported online retailers and grocers.

What if the person I’m sharing with doesn’t have the Share-A-Cart plugin?

If the cart you’re sharing with them is from Amazon, Walmart, or BestBuy, they can use the Share-A-Cart website to receive your cart if they prefer. All they need to do is enter the Cart ID you sent them on the Receive a Cart external link page. For all other retailers, they will need to install and use the plugin to load your cart. This makes the whole process quicker and easier though as they don’t have to leave the retailer’s site when loading your cart.

What’s the benefit of using the Share-A-Cart plugin over the website?

With the plugin installed you don’t need to leave the Shopify site, you can just click on the plugin when ready to generate your cart ID and share instantly. It makes the process quicker and easier than having to go to the Share-A-Cart website but both achieve the same result; sharing your Shopify cart with someone for them to make the purchase.

Can I search for Shopify items on the site?

No, Shopify catalog is not yet available on the " Create a Cart external link " page.

Can I embed Shopify item lists on my own blog or website?

Yes! Whether you made your list through the "Create a Cart external link" page or through the plugin, once the list is created, you can embed the Shopify item list with our embed widget on your blog, website, or anywhere else. Learn how in our embedding a list external link guide.

What’s in it for Share-A-Cart? 🤔

Share-A-Cart will always be free to use as our revenue comes from the retailers themselves who pay us a small % of each shared cart that is purchased with them. It’s a typical affiliate partnership which doesn’t cost you anything and doesn’t add any extra costs or hidden fees to the price of your cart.

What information does Share-A-Cart store about me?

As you might have noticed, using Share-A-Cart does not require a login. We do not store any personally identifiable information. Shopping lists only contain a unique id, but no information about who created it or who used it. You can find more information in our Privacy Policy external link.

This is why I love extensions and this one is downright magical: 1-click and my entire cart is packed and ready to be used. 1-click at destination and the entire cart is reloaded and ready to be purchased. THANK YOU

I use Share-A-Cart all the time to send a list to my secretary, so she can create a purchase order and order my items. The great thing about this site is that it includes amounts of each item. When I have shared a school 'wish list' before, it never allowed me to indicate if I wanted more than one of any item. I would have to include that in an email. Making the process more complicated and inefficient.

I needed a way to transfer items between my personal and business Amazon carts since I often start shopping before I remember to switch accounts. Works like a charm. Saves me lots of time and is so simple to use.
