There’s many ways to sell stuff online, but if you’ve decided you want to sell stuff directly from your own site, you’ve still got to figure out how exactly to do that. You could run a dedicated eCommerce platform on your site, or perhaps add it with a plugin like WooCommerce. The simplest way, though, is with a hosted shopping cart service.

In this roundup I’m going to look at three of the best hosted shopping carts available: eJunkie, AmberCart and Cashie Commerce. Each one has its own pro’s and con’s, and hopefully though this article you’ll be able to find the one that is right for you. Let’s dig in.


Gone are the days when you needed a truckload of money to start an eCommerce venture. I’m not saying that you don’t need a huge amount of capital to start your own shop online. It all depends on the nature and volume of goods you deal with. But one variable of the equation has been tackled successfully over the years.

I’m referring to the availability of free, open and affordable ecommerce platforms that gets you going from day one. Whenever there is a new software platform is launched, developers first think how best they can convert it to an online shop. SaaS providers like Shopify have made the need for custom code totally unnecessary.

How many times have you come back from a shopping run with a bunch of grocery bags, only to find that you have forgot the items (again) for which you made the trip in the first place?

If you plan to be a more efficient shopper in the future, try ZipList. The web app lets you create and manage your grocery shopping list, find and save your favorite recipes from across the web, get great savings and share with your entire family. Let’s go take a look.


If you’re like me, you’ll have learnt to love the convenience of ordering products through online retailers such as Amazon. However, the almighty Amazon boasts a feature which has proven to be incredibly helpful when wanting to save items that you’d consider purchasing in the future but not at the moment – wishlists. If you don’t want to be confined to the Amazon interface and would like a solution that focuses primarily on wishlists themselves and nothing else, look no further than Whimventory.

Whimventory is a cool new alternative and it offers support for multiple online stores, password-protected lists and even allows you to share your wishlists with a single click. Like what you hear? Read on to find out more.
