What is Snipcart
Snipcart is a shopping cart developers can easily integrate into any website in minutes. With our latest version (v3.0), you can add and customize checkout steps, fields, and styles.
How it works
Unlike many e-commerce solutions, Snipcart lives on your site, in its HTML client-side code.
You create products by adding simple HTML attributes—product name, price, description, etc.—to elements on your site. Usually, developers add these attributes to a "buy"
You manage orders within a user-friendly merchant dashboard. Unlike the cart, this dashboard doesn't live on your site—it's hosted on our own servers. You can access it at any time at this URL: https://app.snipcart.com/dashboard
Now that you know how Snipcart works, you're likely wondering:
