Lets start with the most asking question how to share Amazon cart? When browsing and shopping on amazon.com through its website or the mobile apps, you store many items in Amazon Cart that have been selected for purchase at a suitable time. A friend or acquaintance might be interested in viewing your cart for any number of reasons, or maybe you want to solicit someone’s opinion about a particular item in your cart that you’re not sure whether to go ahead with purchasing it or not. In this blog post we will discuss how to share a cart on Amazon?
Amazon does not provide a way to share a cart with other people through its own platforms. There are however, a number of third-party tools and extensions that allow you to do that. Let’s take a look at two of the most popular extensions that enable you to share your Amazon cart with others.
How To Share Amazon Cart With Someone
This extension is widely used for sharing shopping carts of Amazon as well as many other E-Commerce platforms. The process is simple and easy to follow:
- Open any search engine and search for “Share A Cart”.
- Select the “Share A Cart Amazon Extension” search result. It should be among the top-five search results at the top of the page.
- From the download window, select “Add to Chrome” to install this extension on your Google Chrome browser.
- Sign into your Amazon account, and open your shopping cart window.
- Open the “Share A Cart” extension. It is on the top right near the address bar.
- Open the “Create Cart ID” option to generate a unique ID for your Cart.
- Share your unique Cart ID through a text message or email, or by clicking on Share Button at the bottom of the extension. A number of messengers and sharing methods are supported by this extension.
The recipients of your unique Cart ID need to install the same extension on their browsers and follow these steps to view your cart:
- Open the “Share A Cart” extension, and then click on the “Receive Cart” option.
- Enter the Cart ID of the cart that you want to view and click “Get Cart”.
- The shopping cart whose unique ID has been entered will appear on the screen.
- Shopping Cart Share
The second most popular plugin for sharing Amazon Cart is the Shopping Cart Share extension. This extension is different in that it integrates with the Amazon.com website itself and allows you to share your cart with others. It is easy to install and use, and is also available on Android and iPhone versions. Let’s see how it works:
- Search for “Shopping Cart Share” in your search engine.
- Select the “Shopping Cart Share for Amazon” search result at the top of the page.
- Install the extension by selecting “Add to Chrome” in the download screen.
- Open the extension by selecting it from the extension bar at the top right.
- Select the “Cart” Option from the list that appears to load your Amazon shopping cart history.
After integrating Shopping Cart share with your Amazon.com profile, there are multiple ways of sharing your cart with others. Let’s take a look into all of them.
The Share Cart / Wall and Share Cart / Link Options will generate a unique URL for your cart that you can share with anyone, and they can view your cart by simply opening that URL in a browser.
The Share Cart / Email option will allow to directly send your page URL to anyone through Email.
These are two of the best tools that enable you to share your Amazon cart with anyone. The simplicity of these two extensions is only matched by their accessibility, and they allow you to share your whole cart with other people, and enable them to view and edit the contents to their liking, share their opinions about some of the items, and possibly incorporate the items in their own carts.

3. Do the items in my shared cart get purchased automatically by those I’ve shared it with?
No, sharing your Amazon cart does not automatically allow others to purchase items from it. They can only view the items and details. They would need to add the items to their own cart and proceed with the purchase separately.
4. Can others edit or modify my shared cart?
No, others cannot edit or modify the contents of your shared cart. They can only view the items in the cart and decide whether to add them to their own cart.
5. Is there a limit to how long I can keep my cart shared?
There isn’t a specific time limit for sharing your Amazon cart. You can keep it shared as long as you want, but it’s a good practice to unshare it once you no longer need others to view it.
6. Can I share my cart from the Amazon mobile app?
Yes, you can share your Amazon cart from the mobile app using a similar process. Add items to your cart, go to your cart in the app, save the items for later, and then tap the “Share” button to generate a link.
