What They Do
These tools help you sell digital products (although most of them also let you sell physical products). They provide a way to collect payments online and offer something to download in return.
They are different from the full-fledged online stores in the sense that they focus only on the shopping cart of the process.
How They Fit In Your Online Business
These tools fit in 1 stage of your end-to-end online business.
- Funnel Stage: You can create a funnel that leads to the product that you want to sell, then just use the shopping cart software to attach a buy button or a link to pay for that product.
Why I Like Shopping Cart Tools
The reason I prefer shopping carts over all-in-one online stores is because they provide you with full freedom to sell on your existing website, blog, social media account, you name it.
If I had to pick only one tool in this category:
My vote goes to Digital Product delivery. It’s a new entry in this market but has most of what you will need if you are starting off. It is also much cheaper than ThriveCart with is the gold standard of Shopping Carts.

- Digital Product Delivery
Sell and deliver digital products. Simple to use and limited on functionality.
Sell and deliver digital products. Optimized for content creators. What I like about it is that you can seamlessly manage product updates. Your customers get notified when you have updated your product and are notified to download the newer versions.
Arguably the best shopping cart software on the market. Rich with features (returns, recurring payments, etc) and optimized for online businesses.
Some argue that Samcart is even better than Thrivecart. Obviously, it has some die-hard fans.
A new contender in the shopping cart market with great features and an exciting roadmap.
