If this sounds like a good fit for what you are trying to accomplish with Showit 5, let’s do it!
The first thing you need to do is pick a cart software to process payments for your products. Do this before you build your Showit shop because it will determine the entire structure. For example, if you choose to use Shopify Lite, you don’t need to create a cart page in your Showit Website, but if you go with an option like ThriveCart, you may want to create a branded cart page for the checkout experience.
Note: As of January 2019, I use both. I use Shopify Lite right here in the MMC main website (and shop) to allow customers to add more than one item to the cart and checkout all at once. I use ThriveCart when creating sales funnels that lead to specific products and offerings like special one-time offers.

My Suggestion? Start with Shopify Lite. Figure out what products best resonate with your customers and get your bearings! But if you know you’re in the game to build sales funnels or need the higher functionality that ThriveCart offers, go for it!
