"Shared shopping carts are the life hack social retail had been missing. By improving on the technology, we’ve invented a modern way to shop for a group of people at home or in the workplace."--Jack Lowinger, Founder, Cartonomy
Austin, TX (PRWEB) March 07, 2014
Cartonomy will debut shared shopping cart technology, giving people the chance to shop online together for the first time, at SXSW Startup Spotlight from 4pm-6pm, CST on Friday March 7, 2014.
Cartonomy marks the next big evolution in social retail by making online shopping a collaborative group activity. This ecommerce startup is the only social retail solution to allow group access to shopping carts among social communities. For the first time, families, clubs, and offices can actually add the items they want to the shared carts as a shopping group.
“Shared shopping carts are the life hack social retail had been missing,” says founder Jack Lowinger. “Traditionally, social retail has been associated with capturing ideas for home/lifestyle design. By improving on the technology, we’ve invented a modern way to shop for a group of people at home and in the workplace.”
Originally inspired by office managers, Cartonomy streamline the entire online shopping experience to eliminate wasted money, resources, and time. Users first create shopping groups by purchasing commonality for their different communities. They can then browse multiple retailers at the same time, compare prices, tag-team responsibilities, set cart expiration dates, message each other, and complete the order at their preferred retailer for a familiar check out process. Currently, Cartonomy supports the following retailers: BestBuy, Walmart, Target, Sears, and Drugstore.com.
Cartonomy is a social shopping platform that enables groups to create shared carts around common purchasing needs. Families can shop together for the house to keep the kitchen stocked, or offices can create weekly or monthly carts to make sure supplies keep coming in. Via the magic of the shared shopping cart, everyone gets exactly what they ordered with no waste and no complaints.
