Why is Shop a la Cart better?
Because it's easy, fast, customizable and affordable.
First of all, Shop a la Cart is streamlined and easy to use. It's more intuitive than almost any shopping cart system available …and adapts to you, not the other way around.
There is nothing for you to program or install, since we do all of that for you. Using our BackOffice, managing and tracking your sales, from the time of order to the point of shipping, is a breeze. Just plug in your products and content and you're ready to go.
We customize every cart to the desire of the client, so you get the features you need at the price that fits today's budget.
With your license, you own the use of the Shop a la Cart system customized for your domain, so the only monthly fees you pay are to your webhost.
What training do I need before I can use my Shop a la Cart system?
None. Shop a la Cart is so simple to use, you'll never need a manual, much less a degree in computer programming. If you do have a question, though, we are here to help. Just contact us when you need assistance.
What do I need to get started?
You need a domain name, or an idea of one that we can register for you, and a product to sell. Then just sign up right here!
How much does it cost?
We offer two pricing options: lease or purchase. While leasing the system will keep your initial investment low, the purchase option can save you money in the long run.
How can I purchase Shop a la Cart?
In one of two, easy ways: Visit our pricing page, pick a purchase option (monthly or yearly lease), then fill in our quick purchase form to get started and we will contact you soon after. Or contact us to get any answers to your questions from our dedicated support staff, and place your order by phone. Either way, we look forward to serving you!
Why can't I order and pay right now, here online?
Every site is customized, following a careful evaluation of your company's needs. That's what makes us great--and keeps you satisfied by giving you the perfect product for your online business!
Why do I need an evaluation before purchasing Shop a la Cart?
Shop a la Cart is custom-tailored to each individual company's needs. By evaluating those needs, we determine the right system for you and your budget. We also work very closely with you during the design and installation process to ensure you are getting what you really want. This creates an overall better, final product for you and your website's customers.
How long will it take to install my cart?
On average, 7-10 business days after receipt of either (1) your installation fee and first month's payment for the lease option or (2) your initial deposit of 50% for the purchase option:
3-4 days for design and approval
4-5 days for installation of the cart itself, including our hosting set-up.
Then, you just plug in your products — or let us do that for you, too!
Why do I need a license to use Shop a la Cart?
We distribute our Shop a la Cart shopping system for use, whether by lease or purchase, by one domain for one company. We do this by encrypting code of every core component of the system. This encryption prevents software piracy and maintains the integrity of our system by keeping it out of the hands of hackers and those who would exploit its use.

I already have hosting for my existing website. Can I use Shop a la Cart with my current webhost?
Yes, as long as they have support for at least one MySQL database, PHP with GD Library installed and about 10MB of space available. Most webhosts can accommodate these specifications.
I like my current site's design... can you install Shop a la Cart into my site and still keep my design the same?
Yes, we can install Shop a la Cart into your current design. Some small additions are usually necessary, like adding a View Cart link, making space for the navigation of your product's categories, etc. Depending on the design, using your existing one may slightly decrease or increase the cost of your new Shop a la Cart system.
If my company's budget exceeds the cost of your product offerings, is the Deluxe Cart still my best choice?
We can expand our Deluxe Cart to include any custom features you can think of — for example, an enhanced professional design with multiple variations and consultation around them, product set-up and data entry, micro sites to increase your search engine ranking, etc. We devote all of our resources to making sure you get exactly what you desire. …If you can dream it, we can build it!
What if none of the carts will fit my budget? Can you still assist me?
Absolutely! We will custom-tailor a project to meet your more restricted budget, be it consultation, re-design or reimplementation.
Why shouldn't I just go with the cheapest cart on the market?
Because we provide you with an unparalleled service, offered by no other cart:
Your site is custom-designed and programmed by our professional team. ...We will never cram your website into a pre-defined template, as other carts do. The professional look and feel of your site is our top priority! And installation and support are always included.
