Hello, fellow e-commerce aficionados! Today, we're excited to introduce you to a game-changing tool that will revolutionize your shopping cart experience: Rebuy's Smart Cart Add-On app. This feature empowers you to tailor your cart to include a user friendly toggle upsell for things such as gift wrapping, express shipping, shipping protection, gift cards, and more.

If you require shipping protection services, please be advised that Rebuy does not offer inherent shipping protection or product insurance. You may choose to use an alternative shipping protection application, such as Route, which is a technology partner integrated with our platform.


This application functions as a convenient toggle switch for upsell options, specifically for applications that are not currently directly integrated with Rebuy's Smart Cart.

In the dynamic world of ecommerce, in-cart upsells offer a powerful strategy to enhance both revenue and customer satisfaction. By seamlessly integrating options such as premium gift wrapping and skip the line in cart, ecommerce businesses can unlock new streams of revenue while providing added value to their customers. These strategic upsells not only increase average order value but also differentiate your brand in a competitive market, positioning your store as customer-centric and forward-thinking.

With this app, you will have the option to auto-add the product to cart, or allow customers to manually add. If the product is auto added, customers can manually remove the item from their cart. The item will then not be auto-added again during the same session.

Let's get started!
