What is virtual squad shopping?
Think squad shopping, but virtual (duh)! Virtual squad shopping allows you to shop online with your friends as if you’re at the mall together!
Virtual squad shopping is a great way to shop with friends if you’re not in the same location. It’s also a great way to get opinions on items before you buy them. You can shop for clothes, shoes, beauty products, and more. You can also chat with your friends while you shop, and share your thoughts on the items you’re looking at. In fact, with Carrot, you can even collaborate on the same shopping lists! Keep reading to find out how.
What is Carrot?
To put it very simply, Carrot is a browser extension for Chrome that automatically collects and keeps track of your shopping carts.
Carrot has teamed up with over 500,000+ stores and counting, making your online shopping experience even smoother. Even if you’re a big shopper, there are probably a few stores you haven’t heard of. Carrot will help you discover new brands, and who knows, you might just find yourself a new favorite store! Plus, you know when you add something to your cart but refrain from buying it because it’s too expensive? Adding to Carrot notifies you of any price drops that may take place on that product in the future! How cool is that?
Clicking the “add to cart” button on any shopping website automatically adds the item you are looking at to Carrot! This saves every shopping item you have ever viewed in one place. Plus, you can create different collections or wishlists and share them with friends or family.
Carrot also allows you to save your picks so you can easily compare items on quality, sizing, and reviews side-by-side. So you’re less likely to make a decision you regret!
