PutACart was launched in December 2008 and is based in Birmingham, Alabama, USA. PutACart can be used to sell anything on the internet even if you don’t have a dedicated website.
PutACart is quite a unique application, for a start you don’t need to set up a dedicated ecommerce site. It’s possible to convert your existing blog or other social networking application into a sales platform. This makes it ideal for anyone that has a popular blog to make some money. Another difference is that you don’t have to pay a monthly fee to use the site; instead you just need to pay a single one off fee. At the moment though the entire site is free.
PutACart has a very modern and clean design that’s very easy to use. Once you have signed up and chosen your store name you will then be able to copy and paste some code into your blog or website. You don’t need to understand what the code does; you just need to paste it and your store will magically appear.
Registration is mandatory for anyone wanting to use the site. Registration isn’t that difficult and you jus need to choose your store name and then upload a logo. It’s a good idea to spend time doing this properly as it’s what makes your store look unique compared to others. You need to choose the currency and then you can copy and paste some generated code into your blog or other site. This is all you need to start selling things on the internet.
At the moment PutACart is completely free to use, you don’t pay any money regardless of how much you manage to sell. However they will soon start charging a small one off fee to open accounts. Even when they start charging it doesn’t look like you will be expected to pay more depending on how many products you manage to sell.
The site is perfect for anyone that is looking for a way to make some extra money from the internet. If you already have a well established blog then you don’t need to worry about building and marketing a new site. By listing products on your current site you will be able to attract a lot of new customers very easily; this should make it easy to make money from the internet.
