Online shopping cart solutions allow you to monetise your products and services via your website. In effect, you can leverage the power of the internet to increase profitability in your business massively.

If you offer digital products – such as ‘how to’ membership sites or video courses or ebooks, for example, it’s not unrealistic to be able to increase your business income by 10 times, if you have a robust shopping cart software solution.

In the day and age we’re in, where everything is online and mobile, especially consumer shopping, then it would be wise for you to add an online shopping cart software stream to your existing business offerings, if you’re not already doing so.

There are a number of options with your cart software – hosted, self-hosted, open source shopping cart software or bespoke. It’s worth noting that you pretty much get what you pay for and a free/ open source cart is not necessarily the best shopping cart software for your business.

Mashable has written a very good review article on top shopping cart software systems.

Generally, a shopping cart allows your customers to add multiple items and quantities of your products or services to their order and then they ‘check out with all their purchases at the end, like you do in Amazon for example. This is different to a simple ‘buy now’ button, for one product or service.

Whilst Office Autopilot is not a shopping cart solution as such, it offers a fully-hosted business centralisation system which integrates well with your cart and also has a WordPress membership plugin.

Check around this site for some in-depth Office Autopilot reviews and shopping cart software comparison reviews, such as Premium Web Cart, 1 Shopping Cart, Infusion Soft and Nanacast.
