What is Snipcart?

Powerful, easy to install shopping cart platform.

Snipcart is a powerful, developer-first HTML/JavaScript shopping cart platform. You can use it to add custom e-commerce to any sites or web applications in minutes.

Dead-simple online inventory management

Thorough inventory management is crucial to any business. So we made it simple for our merchants. After creating Snipcart products on your site, they show up in your merchant dashboard. From there, you simply assign available quantities for each of them. Our real-time inventory tracking system will then update stock levels after each transaction completed on your store!

Pinpoint stock management for product options

Offering product options & customization drives engagement & repeat business for your store. Using our custom fields, you can already offer an impressive level of customizability. However, this will require a more granular stock level tracking of your products. The good news is Snipcart allows you to manage your inventory by product options. A few quick clicks will get you set up!

Managing your Snipcart inventory

Real-time inventory feedback: in-cart notifications

Don’t worry: we’ll respect the stock quantities you determine. Your customers will receive friendly automatic in-cart notifications when they try to purchase an out-of-stock product. These will prompt them to either remove the product, or select another available option for it.

Out-of-stock: negative inventory tracker

Don’t want customers to get the “out-of-stock” notification in your cart? No problem: simply check the allow out-of-stock purchase option in your inventory. Should your product quantity go below 0, we’ll keep track of your negative stock levels and display them in your dashboard. You just have to make sure you can fulfill all your orders! ;)

E-commerce inventory synchronization with external tools

Using existing online or in-store inventory management systems? Sync up your Snipcart orders data by exploiting our e-commerce API & powerful webhooks. You can use them to create seamless omni-channel shopping infrastructures, or hook Snipcart to your own POS, for instance.
