Shopping and researching for the best plugin or e-store theme to create a shopping cart on our website. It is one thing that could take days away from creating revenue in your business. Yet, it feels like we’re “doing work”.

Sometimes we don’t stop to thing that all we really need is a crazy, simple solution & then get on with offering our work to our ideal clients.
Let me demystify a few simple tools for you today.

5 Simple Free and Low Cost Shopping Carts

Simple Shoping Cart #1  – PayPal

You really can use their paypal feature & even add your own buttons, inventory counts and sync to a mailing list like mailchimp.

Simple Shopping Cart #2 – Simple PayPal Plugin (for WordPress Users)

The setup for this plugin takes about 5 minutes.  There are no API codes or anything strange to fidget with. Just add in your paypal email, link to your “thank you page” and link to a custom “Buy Now” button (if you don’t like the one that’s included)

Simple Shopping Cart #3  – s2Member

This product is designed for membership sites, but it makes an amazingly simple eproduct download. It creates paypal buttons for you that will deliver people directly through the purchase of an eproduct, with or without being added to your mailing list (your choice)

Simple Shopping Cart #4 – E-Junkie

e-Junkie is a very affordable (about $5 per month) shopping cart system. And they even have an affiliate system included in this price so that you can let other people help you sell your products, services & programs

Simple Shopping Cart #5 – EventBrite

Using EventBrite for online events is a very simple solution that a lot of my clients have used. It collects the names of registered guests & makes it very easy to send email reminders & follow up, along with being a very affordable way to collect payment (or offer free events). It also has coupon codes  & a way for people to sign up to be an affiliate for your program (having that extra sales force to promote your work)

Take a look at what you’re building in your business today. Could you use a really Simple Shopping Cart solution?  Do you know a friend who’s creating something complex right now who could use a gentle reminder to keep things simple? Go ahead and share on Facebook and Twitter.
