Three competitors for SamCart include Podia, ThriveCart, and SendOwl. Summaries of these companies and the reasons for choosing them can be found below. A more detailed analysis can be found in this spreadsheet.
Reason for this choice: Podia has VC funding. All example pages they have on their page show a minimalist single checkout page with a buy button that triggers an overlay, making it a true one-page experience.
Key Customer: Latasha Kinnard, author of #1 Amazon bestseller 20-Something & Rich and founder of Start Young Financial Group.
Pricing: It varies per customer but usually costs around $99+ per month.
Reason for this choice: ThriveCart is often cited as a direct competitor to SamCart. It has a one-page checkout option that is similar to SamCart. The "Add to Cart" button does not take the customer to a shopping cart page but instead scrolls to the bottom where there is a section to enter credit card information. Also, ThriveCart ranks 41,708 among websites globally with 1,388,130 visitors per month, which is twice as good as VC-backed Podia.
