We are living in fantastic times. You can sit on your couch organizing virtually every aspect of your life: virtual banking, virtual working, virtual studying, virtual dating and, of course, virtual shopping. With more than 70% of Americans doing the majority of their shopping online, one would assume that our lives would be virtually stress-free.

And yet.

The office manager struggling to make a coherent shopping list from a pile of post-it notes so that she can make an office supply order….online. The roommates trying to accurately split the bill for the dinner they ordered in…online. The mom attempting to remember what brand of yogurt her kids are eating these days so she can go grocery shopping…online.

If these are not scenes from your own life, they are scenes from the lives of your friends, your customers, and millions of people across America. Sometimes the innovations that we have created to simplify our lives do just the opposite.

In the movie The Intern, Jules Ostin, CEO of a fast-growing e-commerce fashion company, summed up the problem so simply: “I want to figure out a way for friends to shop together online.”

Well, Jules, dream no more. Cartonomy’s e-commerce platform answers the demand for a smarter, hassle-free approach to group shopping online. We streamline the way users shop together socially, providing a collaborative and enjoyable way to create, coordinate and ultimately fulfill shopping lists.

People all over the media and business world are waking up to the fact that it is no longer enough to simply provide your customers with a way to shop online; you need to provide them with the simplest, safest, and quickest way to shop online…together.

Between social media and social networks, we are almost always connected with our friends, families and colleagues. Why should our shopping experiences not meet the changing needs of our society?

Cartonomy offers you and your customers the solution. Users simply create a network where each member can edit the joint shopping list, browse the online store, add or remove items from the shared cart, and choose whether they want to pay as a group or split the bill. It’s that simple. Groups can stay organized, track their expenses and live chat about their purchases, reaching everyone simultaneously.

So, whether you want to expand your existing e-commerce or break into the market for the first time, now is the time to show your customers that you understand their needs and can provide the solutions.
