Among the various ways to increase conversion rates in Magento 2 stores, for example, having an online chat or personalized recommendations, there is one rather interesting way called a Share cart. This feature allows buyers to share their online carts with loved ones and friends. Such functionality allows you to passively advertise your goods through your customer base and thereby increase your online store’s conversion. 

There are many different ways to add a share cart functionality to your Magento 2 store, and we'll look at one of them. And we’ll do this using two examples of share cart extensions. The first one will be Share Cart for Magento 2 from Mageplaza, which is completely free to use. The second one will be Share Shopping Cart - Magento 2 from Redchamps. It's a paid extension, which costs $99. We’ll look at the extensions themselves, their functionality, and what they can offer to Magento 2 store owners.

Share Cart for Magento 2: Quick Overview

The Share Cart for Magento 2 extension was developed by Mageplaza and was created specifically to make a simple and quick way to share customers’ shopping cart contents. To do so, it’s enough to click the “Share Cart”. The link that is bound to the cart will be instantly copied to the clipboard. Moreover, this link can be sent anywhere and to any place where it is possible to paste it.

Text Button

If several different products have already been saved in the cart, in that case, the extension provides an opportunity to get complete information about the contents of the cart using the Text button. After that, a pop-up window appears with detailed information about the upcoming purchase, such as the price of each item, the total number of items, and the total purchase price. It's a very simple but extremely useful function.

PDF Button

While the Text button allows you to get basic information about the goods in the cart, the PDF button allows buyers to generate a file in PDF format, which is a full-fledged invoice. Buyers can download it and save these them on their devices. This file contains all vital information, such as:

  • Various information about the store (full name of the company and its address, email, telephone, registration number, etc.).
  • Various warnings.
  • Date of purchase.
  • Full purchase total (total quantity of goods, ID number of each item, detailed description, price of each item and total purchase price).
