What exactly is Carrot, and who is it for?

Carrot is a browser extension for Chrome that automatically collects and keeps track of your shopping carts.

With the click of a button, you can add the item you’re viewing to Carrot. Then voila, every single cart or shopping item you’ve ever viewed is all in one place, automatically added! From there you can create collections and even share them with friends or family to view. We know… you’re probably thinking, ‘Oh really? Just like that?’

Yes, my friend, just like that!

And guess what? Carrot works across over 500,000+ stores, with new stores being added all the time.

Carrot’s main aim is to improve your shopping experience, making it easier for you to curate and share collections of your favorite products.

So, who is Carrot for?

It’s for you, and you, and you — heck, it’s for everybody!

But especially, for:

  1. Super shoppers. You know, those people who spend a ton of time shopping in stores online, looking for great deals!
  2. The Monica Gellers- We all know a “Monica Geller” type. Or perhaps, it’s you! Super organized, in love with planning, obsessed with de-cluttering.
  3. Tastemakers- Those people are always on top of the latest fashion trends and even setting them.
  4. Considerate shoppers- Gotta love them. You know, the people always thinking wayyy in advance about the perfect gifts for everyone’s Birthday and Christmas.

If you’ve said ‘Oh wait, that’s me’ for any of the categories above, then you’re in luck.

With Carrot, you can finally end the toxic relationship you have with opening too many tabs, taking heaps of screenshots, and making spreadsheets filled with links to products you’ll likely end up forgetting about.

We know, break-ups can be tough, but Carrot is here to make it easier. The perfect rebound shall we say! You’ll never, lose track of the products you want and brands you love again.

Features of Carrot

1. Create collections

If you want to create a collection, just click on the big purple window at the top of Carrot, and it’s pretty straightforward from there. Your collections will help you sort through things you need to buy for parties, gifts, DIY projects for your home, vacation shopping lists, wish lists, etc.

2. Manage and share collections

With Carrot collections, you can customize them as you like! Adding or removing products from a collection at any time, sharing the names of your collections, adding or removing multiple items from multiple stores with a simple multi-select action (this action is applied across all collections), sharing your collections, making collections public or private and giving feedback or receive it on your products and collections.

3. Create a gift registry

You can convert your collections into a gift registry for any occasion at all with Carrot. By clicking on the toggle button ‘Gift registry’ in your collection, you’ve instantly turned your collection into your very own gift registry!

When friends and family see it, they can claim the products you want as gifts on your behalf. Cool, right?

4. Track Prices

With Carrot, it’s easier to track the prices of different products. Once you’ve saved an item to Carrot you can see when the price goes up or down.

5. Get Price alerts

Holding off buying a product because the price is too high? Carrot can notify you when there’s a price drop for you to buy that product you’ve been eyeing for weeks on end.

6. Compare products

You know that pretty dress you saw on Amazon? More than likely another one you saw very similar to it that you also liked. Save your picks in Carrot and you can easily compare items on quality, sizing, and reviews side-by-side. So you’re less likely to make the decision you regret!

7. Organize wish lists

Another thing that Carrot lets you do is organize your wish lists by giving them titles. For example, you can have a birthday wish list or even a house decor wish list. This way, you’ll make it easier for your loved ones to know the occasion the wish list is for and the appropriate time to buy them for you.

8. Discover brands

We have over 500,000+ stores… and counting. Even if you’re an avid shopper, there are likely a few stores you’ve not heard of. Carrot will help you discover new brands, and who knows? You may just find yourself a new fave store!

9. Text to Carrot

Asides from installing our extension, there’s another way you can Add to Carrot on the go.
