Sell online, anywhere using No Cart

By • Dec 12th, 2008 • Category: Projects

As many of you know, I have been working on a handful of internet services the last few months aimed at individuals and small businesses. Today I am pleased to announce the official launch of one of these services, No Cart.

No Cart is a very simple application that allows you to sell an item anywhere online. The only catch is you have to promote it.

No Cart simply asks for the name of the item you want to sell, the price, and your PayPal address, and generates a short address where the item can be purchased. Other optional information, such as a description, shipping costs, part number, and quantity available can also be added.

The idea behind No Cart is to make it so anyone can sell an item online, anywhere – even social networks like Twitter, MySpace, and Facebook for no cost at all.

No Cart is different from eBay because there are no fees, auctions, or registrations needed, and is different from craigslist because items are private until you promote them. No Cart simply provides a place where the item can be purchased and statistics on the result of your efforts.

Some of you may have heard about No Cart in the past, because I registered the domain a few months back when I came up with the idea for Drop Cart, which is another service of mine that allows you to drop an entire shopping cart platform on any site that allows JavaScript. No Cart essentially does the same thing, but uses URLs for an even greater reach.

Check out No Cart at http://nocart.com/ and follow me or No Cart on twitter for updates on the service and popular items for sale.

  1. Sounsd awesome. Can’t wait to hear back how it works for people.
    Awesome work!

  2. This is an amazing app! Just yesterday a colleague was asking how he could put a cart on a client’s website, when she uses a sliding scale for charges~I’ve passed this info on to him.

  3. Could you use Google Checkout instead of PayPal??

  4. @Jason
    Google Checkout is an option on there, but it is currently disabled because there is no way for No Cart to be notified of the completed transaction without you having to modify your merchant settings.

    I put in a request to Google to implement something similar to Paypal’s notify_url, but there’s no telling if they will do that anytime soon. If it’s something you are interested in, I can activate the Google Checkout option for you, but you would have to manually mark an item as sold on No Cart once it’s been purchased.
