What Shopping is like WITHOUT Persistent Cart:

Let’s say Jim is shopping at work on your store and has 5 items in his shopping cart. Then he gets gets on a bus to go home and loads your site on his phone. He logs in, only to find a sad and empty shopping cart. He tries to remember what he was going to buy and struggles to add some items to his cart. When he gets home, he hops on his home computer, logs into your store and finds his shopping cart empty again. He gives up, and you lose a sale.

What shopping is like WITH Persistent Cart:

When Jim is on the bus and logs into your site, his cart automatically loads with the 5 items he added while he was at work. Let’s say he adds 2 more items while he’s on the bus. When he gets home and logs in on his home computer, he’ll have all 7 items in his cart. He can than continue shopping and is much more likely to make a purchase, and his purchase will be bigger. He's also a much happier customer and more likely to shop again on your site.

See the difference immediately, a quick experiment.

Navigate to your store. Log into an account like a customer and add some items to your cart. Then go to a different device or browser and log in. Your original cart will be gone. Install the Persistent Cart free trial here or by pressing the green "Get" button above, and try the same thing. You won't lose your shopping cart.

Customers and Shop Owners Love Persistent Cart.

  • Privacy: Customers expect their shopping carts to be empty when they log out because they value privacy. With Persistent Cart, your shopping cart will finally respect your customer's privacy.

  • Fast and Robust: Persistent cart makes sure that your customer's cart is sync'd to his or her account within a second of any shopping cart changes.

Persistent Cart FAQ

How do I set up Persistent Cart for my store?

There’s no set up, and there are no installation steps. Persistent Cart works in the background linking your shopping cart to customer accounts, so your customers can log in and keep shopping as they switch devices.

What happens when there are already items in the shopping cart and then a customer logs in?

Persistent Cart is smart. Let’s say Jim adds a few items to his shopping cart and then decides to log in. If we find a cart associated with his account, we simply ask him if he would like to load the found cart, keep his current cart or combine both carts.

What happens when a customer logs out?

Persistent Cart clears the shopping cart as your customer would expect, but you can turn off this feature if you'd like in the settings.

What happens when my customer checks out and no longer has items in his or her cart?

When your customer checks out, we clear the cart tied to his or her account just as you would expect.

Its an app you should have. How many saved carts does it take for you to make back the $3.99? Pays for itself. No reason not to give it a whirl.


Excellant app for web develpers i highly recomend it,thnx again


I've been using this app for many of my stores and will continue using it in the future


Cool app. Using it in 2 of my shops. Every store needs it. Thanks guys.


Exactly what me and my customers needed :)


A lot of dropped carts, unhappy customers and lost money. Still waiting for a response after sending an email 3 days ago. It's also impossible to speak with them over the phone. Will change my rating once everything has been fixed.


I haven't been using this app that much, but I like what I see. I see a potential in it. Thank you.
