Create your discount offer with images to convert our free marketing into new customers.
That’s it, all other settings, such as editing your Thank You banner, are optional.
Try it to see just how quickly your discount offer and featured product image attracts free traffic and paying customers. There is no lock-in!
GoodCarts’ one year retention rate for our member stores is more than 90% with our Shop-for-Good circle of brands. Why? GoodCarts members enjoy an average of more than 10% discount offer redemption rate.
See GoodCarts.co/woocommerce and our general GoodCart.co for more details. We serve multiple ecommerce platforms, so the first link is your best WordPress/WooCommerce specific advice.
When a customer makes a purchase from your ecommerce store, a modest Thank You banner is displayed on your “Thank You/Order Received” WooCommerce page. This allows consumers — credit cards out and ready to purchase — to discover and shop from other stores in the GoodCarts network. You can ensure your direct competitors are not displayed. Just as you’re “recycling” traffic to other stores in the GoodCarts network, they are “recycling” traffic to your store.
In the future, GoodCarts will offer premium options including featured discounts and additional traffic opportunities.

Automatic installation is the easiest — WordPress handles the file transfer, and you won’t leave your web browser. For an automatic install of GoodCarts, log in to your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the Plugins menu, and click ‘Add New’
In the search field type ‘GoodCarts’, then click ‘Search Plugins’. Once you’ve found us, you can install it by clicking ‘Install Now’, and WordPress will take it from there.
Activate the GoodCarts plugin and then go to the admin / GoodCarts section and follow the instructions.
Manual installation method requires downloading the GoodCarts plugin here and uploading it to your web server via your favorite FTP application. The WordPress codex contains instructions on how to do this here.
- Unzip the plugin you downloaded and upload the “goodcarts” folder to your ‘wp-content/plugins’ directory
- Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in WordPress
- Then go to the admin / GoodCarts section and follow the instructions.
Automatic updates should work smoothly, but we recommend that you backup your site.
What kinds of stores will your store cross-promote?
GoodCarts connects stores in “Circles” based on themes like shop-for-good/sustainable products, Made in USA, Black-owned, Premium DTC, and a wider Founders Circle for small businesses. We carefully review stores to make sure they are in the best fit circle..
What kinds of stores aren’t allowed?
None of the GoodCarts Circles allow stores selling adult/mature products, alcohol, weapons, etc. Only the Founders Circle for everyday small business retailers accepts stores that dropship products from outside of their home continent.
Can my store join from anywhere?
Our initial focus is on stores that ship standard to the United States. Additional Circles are planned for other parts of the world. Contact us and ask to join a waiting list for your part of the world.
Is “Free” too good to be true?
It is both good AND true! GoodCarts is powered by reciprocity – all members in our network present their post-checkout customers the opportunity to view discounts from other brands in the same Circle. By recycling your post-purchase traffic, you’re earning free exposure and traffic in return.
Can I choose which stores to cross-promote?
Yes, once you are approved into your Circle, find the Blocklist feature under More Options. This allows you to pick stores with whom you DO NOT wish to share traffic. It is typically used to avoid promoting a direct competitor.
