Problems & Solutions
After customers purchase something nice and want to share it or recommend what products they bought, they will likely send text messages to their family and friends. However, this process takes quite a lot of time, making customers reluctant to share. The Share Cart extension for Magento 2 enables buyers to share their choices with just a click, which will help increase customer experience.
When customers need to record the purchases because of either personal or business reasons, they cannot do so in the default Magento 2. However, thanks to Mageplaza Share Cart, in case customers want to have evidence of the purchase for various purposes, they can easily download cart information details in PDF files. After that, it is possible for them to store and share later.
Product and store promotions
Not only does this feature allow customers to share their positive experiences, but it also is a great way to promote the store and products. According to Nielsen, 83% of respondents say they tend to trust family and friends’ recommendations. Share Cart extension allows customers to share their suggestions freely, which then can reach larger audiences. Thanks to this referral marketing, the conversion rates will increase significantly, and the brand image will be improved.
All details of the shopping cart will be summarized in a short text. When customers choose the Text button on the Shopping Cart Page, a text summary box of chosen items, price, quantity, and the total price will pop up.
Copy And Paste Cart To Share
Mageplaza Share Cart extension provides the extra “Share cart” button, allowing customers to copy the link of their shopping carts and paste it wherever they prefer. Once other people click on the shared links, their carts will be immediately updated similarly.
