Why Choose Samcart Vs Clickfunnels?
SamCart, by co-founder and top internet marketer Brian Moran, is possibly the easiest way to start selling a digital product online. It also has a unique ability to store upsell funnels that are independent of the initial product, i.e. you can easily attach a pre built funnel to a new product.  

Sam Cart can be argued to be the best in breed checkout software on the market because they only focus on the checkout and post checkout, unlike all in one solutions such as Click Funnels. As such it does not have a sales page or optin page builder (and therefore you will need to use and pay for an external landing page software) but does come with pre installed checkout page templates.
However SamCart have come up with the unique 1 Page Funnel concept where you send traffic straight to a checkout page that sells the customer on the product, highlighting the benefits and features on that page. You will of course get best results by preselling first from an email or facebook ad however this is a unique concept that basically does away with the need for creating long and fancy sales pages.

Samcart Pricing

Sam Cart Features
Samcart's checkout pages have been market-proven to 2X sales from traffic you're already getting. You are able to offer digital downloads from within the platform, sell in any currency you choose and offer shipping options.
For membership sites, a lot of people use Samcart to take care of the checkout page which integrates sales processing and CRM updating (ie tags in Infusionsoft) functions, and use ClickFunnels for the registration and launch process which leads to the sales order and sales processing components. Many software programs cross over or interject with certain functions which are not their specialty. For example just because Clickfunnels or LeadPages, etc have landing page functionality doesn't mean you should use them as an entire web site. 

You need to google the pros and cons of various software packages or look for comparisons and you will learn the reasons why and why not to use a particular feature for a certain reason. You can in fact use both SamCart and ClickFunnels, with Samcart being the payment management tool, whilst Clickfunnels acts as the membership backend tool. You don't need a reason to pick either or - they both have different functions and we know plenty of people who use both.

Samcart Integrations
SamCart integrates with all of your favorite email marketing, product delivery and tracking tools. It finally has Drip integration which is great as we use Drip to send our campaigns and broadcasts and means we can tag customers to specific buyer lists). Check out the full list below.
It also has a super useful sandbox mode which enables you to ensure everything is working correctly before going live with your product funnels. You can do test payments in stripe which don't show in your stats (unlike clickfunnels).
Samcart Affiliate Center
If you have the premium subscription you get access to the SamCart affiliate center which enables you to recruit your own army of affiliates to help you sell your products for you. SamCart has an excellent affiliate dashboard where you can see your total affiliates earnings per click or a breakdown of your best affiliate metrics.

SamCart vs Shopify?
What about SamCart vs an ecommerce platform like Shopify?

Shopify is best if you are selling multiple physical products and need a store front where people can add different products to their cart and check out. However, if you have a smaller number of products it's often best just to create individual ecommerce funnels which is where Samcart excels. In our popular 'Free Plus Shipping Funnel Ski Wax Fail' post we broke down a sales funnel we built in clickfunnels for a ski wax funnel. Below is how it looks inside Sam Cart with their funnel section (within the upsells dropdown).

However, like Clickfunnels, Samcart is built more for marketers who sell digital products such as courses and ebooks who require software that offers upsells and split testing. Shopify does not offer any of this out of the box and many successful ecommerce entrepreneurs find ways to build funnels using external software that integrates with Shopify. Likewise it's far easier to create and customize checkout pages in Samcart than in Shopify, even with the new customize checkout feature shown below.
