Thivecart has changed the way I handle my funnels. Before using Thrivecart, Woo-commerce, Shopify, PayPal buttons, and poorly designed checkout carts were my options. While those did the trick, I always felt like my set up was a little underwhelming and I felt that I was leaving money on the table by not having a “Pro” looking checkout template.
How did I find Thrivecart?
Thrivecart is currently in a “pilot” phase. It’s not available to the general public and you must request entry into the program. You can click here to purchase.
What makes Thrivecart special?
The biggest pro to Thrivecart is the ability to create a product, connect it to you or your client’s payment processor, easily insert the checkout URL on your landing page, and voila, you’re off to the races.
Is it for digital or physical products?
Thrivecart can be used for both. While it does at the moment seem like it’s geared towards digital products like downloadable PDF’s, online or offline training courses, I was able to sell items such as coffee cups from an e-commerce store.
The reason being is that the coffee mug didn’t offer multiple sizes or color options. Thrivecart hasn’t provided the ability to select multiple sizes and options within one cart. But what you might consider a limitation, I consider an opportunity to hone in on products with very low return rates. We all know apparel can be tricky when it comes to how it fits customers. Across the industry, consumers who return clothes can severely affect a business’s bottom line. However, I would like to see this feature added later but for now it is more than acceptable.
Are there alternatives to Thrivecart?
Yes. As with most products, there are similarities and then glaring differences that can make or break whether someone chooses this platform or another.
I’m going to start off with one of the biggest reasons I chose Thrivecart. IT HAS A LIFETIME DEAL. Every cart I checked out had great features as well. I loved the designs and some I might have chosen if the same conditions were met. But these platforms can also cost you anywhere from $79 a month to $500 a month.
I’ve tried Sam Cart, Kyvio, and Cartfog, but they all seem to like the polish and ease of Thrivecart. I’ve created products on the fly and with the help of a landing page built on WordPress and Elementor, have sold thousands of dollars worth of digital and physical goods and services.
Is the agency upgrade worth it?
Yes. The power of Thrivecart is not only the ability to sell products but to sell your clients products. You can easily integrate and embed a form on your client’s page and manage their sales funnel. You can link their Pay Pal to the product to ensure they are getting paid for their sales. You can charge a commission on the back end or a monthly fee.
Does it have an affiliate portal?
Yes. Thrivecart offers an affiliate portal baked in so you can easily start having your affiliates share the product. It’s quite easy to set up and get going. That’s the best thing I love about Thrivecart so far, it’s ease of use.
