FAQ

CoCarting is a new way of online shopping. We are making online shopping more social and collaborative. Rather than sharing links of items with your family and friends via text, social media apps, and email you can do it on our site.

Through CoCarting, you can shop for millions of products from hundreds of retailers and brands. Our goal is to help you save time, minimize frustration, and connect people when shopping online.
There’s a thin line.

A CoCart is your shareable shopping cart. You can invite friends, family, or colleagues. Anyone that you invite to your CoCart can vote, add or delete items in your CoCart.

  • Click on Sign Up at the top right-hand corner. You can sign up using Google, Facebook, or your name and email address to join. (Make sure to check your email and confirm your sign-up).
  • Once logged in to your account, click on “Create CoCart.”
  • Enter your CoCart name (e.g. “Ballet Shoes,” or “Baseball Mitts” or “Birthday Party” ), and a brief description.
  • Then, add the emails or phone numbers of your friends and family you want invited to your new cart.
  • You have the option of marking it “Public” or “Private” under your “Cart Type.”
  • Start Shopping!

A Public CoCart is open to everyone. A Private CoCart is available only to you and those you invite to your cart.

If you already have a CoCart and you want to invite people to it. Open your cart, and select the invite icon in the left-hand corner of the page. Click the “Invite” button to add emails or phone numbers. Your friends and family will receive an invitation link to join your CoCart. Now everyone is ready to go CoCarting!

To purchase an item in your CoCart, click the product, then it will open a new page with product details. You can click the checkout button, and it will automatically add this product to your chosen retailer’s cart. Repeat this process if you have multiple products to purchase.

Yes! As long as your CoCart is public, you can share it on social media. You can do this by selecting the arrow button to share it on your favorite platforms.

If an item in your CoCart is not visible, your invited guest may have deleted it if you gave them permission. You can always edit the permission given, if you go to your carts settings. You will see this option in the bottom and be sure to save any changes made.

If you forgot your password, click on “sign in” on the home page and then “Forgot password.” We’ll send you a link to the email address you used to create your account so you can change your password.

First, CoCarting makes online shopping more relationship based vs. transactional. You can shop online by yourself anywhere at any time, but with CoCarting, you can share, vote, and discuss a product in your CoCart and keep things organized within your CoCart.

Secondly, CoCart cuts down on the hassle. No more exchanging lists of hyperlinks or looking at 10 different websites because a certain retailer doesn’t have what you want. With CoCarting, you can shop for a large selection of products with your favorite people in the SAME shopping cart. From bargain brands to luxury items, you can shop for them all through your CoCart.

Literally, for any occasion or event. CoCarting is designed for:

  • Everyday purchases,
  • Big life events like weddings and graduations
  • Holidays like Christmas, Easter, Valentine’s Day, etc.
  • Back to school
  • Travel

There are no fees to use the CoCarting platform.

Yes. We use the latest encryption technology and SSL security to ensure that your information is kept safe. All payments will be handled through each partners’ site, which is a safe and protected checkout process.

CoCarting may sound like a wishlist at first, but it’s much more than that. A wish list is simply a list of desired items that you purchase at a later time or send to someone else in the hopes that they will buy you something.

CoCarting is relational shopping. You and your invitees share the same shopping cart and is an interactive shopping tool. It allows multiple friends and family to add items, remove items, or vote on products in the CoCart. You can use the chat function to communicate synchronously or asynchronously. No more confusion and no more hassle.

  1. How many times have you purchased an item online only to realize that you don’t like it? We always intend to return unwanted purchases, but sometimes they sit out of sight, and we forget to send them back. With CoCarting, your family and friends can provide their honest opinions and feedback. This can help you purchase the right item and reduce the chances of you purchasing something that you don’t like. 
  2. CoCarting with friends and family also can save gas and time. 
  3. If you ask friends and family for help to find deals, there are over 40 million products at CoCarting.com. Shopping can become fun again, rather than doing it by yourself.
