Is E-Commerce Without A Shopping Cart Possible? Selling products online without a shopping cart?

My store started in a 70 square foot room over 15 years ago, 
back then you had to sell your firstborn to afford a cart!!!

There was no shopify, squarespace, wix, godaddy, etc, and
amazon was only selling books!

We started as an ecommerce store without a shopping cart! I learned how to build a website from a flyer at costco!

You can still sell products online without a cart too, actually, its not a bad strategy, here is why-

Upsides to ecommerce without a shopping cart:

  • You would be suprised at the amount of people that prefer to shop this way
  • Phone orders get almost 2x the revenue as a shopping cart order, more personable. 
  • Live chat is an option as well, hook it up to your phone!

    Downsides: 
  • Harder and more expensive to attribute where the sale came from, to connect it to any marketing efforts or spend
  • It takes a lot of time

    How to get started?
  • Build a regular website, for each product create a regular page, and instead of an add to cart button, have a button say call to order
  • Put Call to order all over the place, top of mobile, click to call
  • Offer live chat as an option, connect to your phone

    For Payments - Take credit card info over the phone, or offer venmo or paypal accounts

    Collect money, and ship!

    This is Especially good for high ticket $$$ items

    Get started, wix, squarespace, godaddy so easy to build a site. You can convert to ecommerce later!
