You’ve probably seen or heard of ClickFunnels. If not, you might be thinking that it’s someone’s hobby or perhaps an advertising tool used by Internet marketers to get website traffic. Truth is, it can be used for a lot more than that. In this article, you will learn everything you need to know about making your very own shopping cart in ClickFunnels.
Why Should You Make A Shopping Cart In ClickFunnels?
Why should you make a shopping cart in ClickFunnels? There are a lot of advantages to having a live shopping cart on your website. Here are just a few of them:
- Fully functioning shopping cart allows you to sell anything to anyone from your own website.
- Interactive shopping carts make it easy for customers to find what they want and provide an excellent user experience.
- Live carts make it easier for customers to navigate your site and buy what they want without having to go through unnecessary steps.
- Integrating a shopping cart into your website will add to the credibility of your business because it shows that you’re a serious and trusted business.
- Catching technical errors before customers do means fewer problems for your business. Plus, it’s always nice to have a functioning shopping cart on your site.
- Live carts are also great for SEO. When customers can add products to their cart and easily navigate to the checkout process, it shows that you’re providing a good user experience and keeping things simple.
- Shopping carts provide extra security for your customers as well. If someone tampers with the contents of their shopping cart, it will alert them that their input was actually being counted and they didn’t mess up.
- Integrating a functioning shopping cart into your website means that you’re confident enough in your coding ability to create an easy-to-use interface.
- You don’t necessarily need a functioning shopping cart to make a simple donation through your website. However, having a live cart does present an opportunity to get more engagement with your audience. For example, you could use the cart to show special deals that are only available when you have a specific product in your cart.
- Donations through your website can also be made easier with a live shopping cart. Customers can browse through the offers and make a donation when they find something that interests them.
How Do I Get Started With A Shopping Cart In ClickFunnels?
As a first step, you need to create a new account on the ClickFunnels dashboard. Once you do, you will be able to export your existing HTML code and import it into the newly created account. This is important because you don’t want to put in all the effort to create the cart only to find out that the code doesn’t work for some reason. It would be best to get it right the first time.
To get started, click on the green + button at the top of the dashboard. This will take you to a menu where you can select Import from HTML. Once you hit the import button, you will see a preview of what your cart will look like on your site. If you’re happy with the preview, click the continue button. Otherwise, you can go back and try a different demo.
You will now need to create a new product in your cart. You can do this by clicking on Products at the top of the page. When you create a product, you will see a window pop up where you can enter product details such as name, price, and description.
To add more products, scroll down the page and add more items.
To add more details to your product, click on the pencil icon at the top of the page. A window will then pop up where you can edit the product information. If you’re happy with the changes, click the continue button, otherwise go back and try another product.
What Type Of Content Should I Include In My Product Description?
When creating your product description, you need to ensure that it is a clear and compelling description of what your product is and does. To start, include a couple of paragraphs explaining what your product is and why it is special.
You can also use the power of persuasion to convince your readers to buy your product. To do this, you can use words like – incredible, special, unique, and potent. These will help put words in your customers’ mouths and increase the odds of them buying what you’re selling.

How Do I Set The Price For My Product?
Setting the price for your product is one of the most important aspects of creating an online store. You want to make sure that you’re not misleading your potential customers by setting the price too high or too low. For the best results, set a price that is in the middle of the range – not too high, not too low. Also, make sure that you are consistent in your pricing. If you have a limited number of products, setting a high price for one and a low price for the other will make your customers think that there is a quality difference between the two. This, in turn, will make them reluctant to purchase the low-priced item simply because they don’t want to miss out on the good thing.
To keep things simple, you can round up to the nearest dollar. So if you sell an incredible product for $100, your price should be 101 cents or $1.01 to begin with and then you can round up to the nearest dollar. You can put a range of prices for your products, but rounding up is the simplest and most accessible solution. Don’t worry about including too much information about prices, the simpler the better. Your customers will understand what you’re doing and appreciate your efforts.
Can I Gauge The Success Of My Product By The Number Of Views That It Gets?
You can use several ways to measure the success of your product. One of the simplest ways is to use the number of views that it gets. In analytics, this is referred to as “impressions”. Impressions are simply the total number of times that a product’s page is viewed.
To view your product’s page, go to the product’s URL in a web browser. The number of impressions will appear at the top of the page. This is a good indicator of how successful your product is, provided that you are getting enough traffic to your product’s URL.

How Do I Display My Products On A Webpage?
Now that you have a functioning product in your cart, you need to display it on a web page. You have 3 options here:
- Use the dropdown menu located at the top of the page to choose the type of page you want to put your product on – Blog, Gallery, or Product Details.
- Use the tag cloud to display all the products on a single web page. When a customer clicks on a product’s name in the tag cloud, it will take them to that product’s page.
- Use a combination of the two – create a blog about the product and include the product’s photo on the blog. When a customer clicks on a product’s name in the tag cloud, it will take them to that product’s blog.

Do I Need To Configure My Product Before I Can Use It?
No, you do not need to configure your product before you can use it. However, it’s a good idea to do this whenever you add a new product to your cart. This is especially important if you purchased the product from a third party shop and it was not configured properly for sales in your country. For example, if you’re from the U.S. and you order a car from Germany, it will come with German car plates and German documentation. If you want to use the car, you will have to manually change all the car’s settings. In most cases, this is not a big deal, but it’s still good practice to do it regardless.
To learn more, visit the manufacturer’s website to get the manual for your car or look up the car’s documentation on Google.
