About Group Carts & Chat Rooms

About Group Carts and Chat

Cartonomy is the fun and easy way for your customers to buy products and shop together. No more messy collaboration over text, email, and outside social networks. Now you can find everything within add to cart button. We build the social network right into your store, so customers can privately:

  • Share a cart and invite friends, family, or coworkers to chat rooms
  • Discuss products from the catalogs and also see the detailed view of the purchase in the cart.
  • Manage a group budget or fulfill a group shopping list in a shopping cart
  • Cart users can establish deadlines for group orders and group purchase
  • Easily import information from Google, Facebook, or other social networks


Our features help you increase sales and reduce abandoned carts, by removing the barriers to purchase that are often caused by group decision making. If your customer needs approval for a purchase, they can instantly share their cart with a parent, purchasing manager, or whoever pays the tab while buying products. If a manager or parent has a budget for a group order, she can set the budget and then share a cart to discuss and decide how to spend it. We give your customers an incentive to stay in your shop until all the group decisions can be resolved -- and then make a purchase through your usual store cart.

How it works

Customers can find the Cartonomy widget discretely located near the add to cart button of your store page. They can activate it by clicking on it or pressing the "Add to New Group Order" button on any product in your catalog. After they could send private email invitations to the people they would like to shop with. These people are directed to your site to join the shared cart and chat rooms. The widget stays closed as your customers browse your store, and notifies them when there is a new message, product, or shopper in their group that needs some attention.

Cartonomy has been optimized to work with most Shopify themes, so that the "Add to Group Order" button matches the look of your store - as in our screenshots.

Our app installs quickly and cleanly, so try it out. If you experience any issue with the appearance of the button, please contact us at so we can work out a customization for your design.

Cartonomy has been making social eCommerce apps with love in NYC since 2013.

I loved this app! It definitely beat my competitors in managing groupbuys through their whatsapp which was messy , linear and complicated. Im so glad to have found this app which was quick to install and surprisingly easy to setup to start running. Special shoutout of Thanks to Jack who immediately arrange a time to video chat with me to ensure I had everything I need. He patiently listens to my needs and feedback and guided me on what to do.

You won't go wrong with this app and the team behind it! Thumbs Up!

Our store wanted to come up with a difference maker from our competitors. So I contacted David and Jack to see what we could come up with. They came up with a custom design that was to help beer clubs to be able to order small inexpensive items as a group and get free shipping. It took a few months to get right, but David was working on it to make sure it worked just the way we wanted it!
It works great now!
Thanks guys for all your help!
