Cosmic Cart: Shop on Multiple Websites with One Shopping Cart
Everyone loves to do a little online research on what to buy people for Christmas. Personally, I seem to get a little carried away with what I want for myself. On the odd occasion when I am thinking about others, several retailers get a small piece of my business. Finding the right gift for loved ones means substantial research, and often results in finding products from a number of sites. Each site comes with its own online registration, which always includes giving up all your personal details in a time-consuming manner.
Well, Happy Holidays! My gift to you is Cosmic Cart. Now you can add products from those exciting boutique retailers and stores across the web, all into one magical shopping cart. Cosmic Cart was a showcased startup at our Tech Cocktail Week mixer in Las Vegas. Guest author Chris Joannou is a serial entrepreneur with businesses in everything from tech to tequila.
