FAQ

  • Why did we create POSTCART?

    We built POSTCART because we know from experience that running an e-commerce shop is a ton of work. Hours are typically spent setting up and using any popular cart solution, such as Squarespace or Shopify, or any online marketplace like Etsy or Amazon. Many website building apps have overbuilt dashboards for uploading and managing products. And many marketplaces have a million steps and time-consuming processes for listing goods. If you are a one-of-a-kind or few-of-a-kind seller, it's just too time consuming.

    Maybe you have a web presence but your shop is rarely updated, or items are sold out. Most people that make or sell one-of-a-kind or few-of-a-kind goods want to be dreaming, making, sourcing or curating, not sitting at their laptop all day staring at a database.

    POSTCART allows you to create an e-commerce site or page by using Instagram. Simply post on Instagram, and POSTCART creates your website. Our aim is to make things as simple and elegant as possible. Just take a picture, write a description, post, and sell. POSTCART empowers people who like to create, make and curate.
