Frequently Asked Questions

What is Blackcart?

What is Try Before You Buy?

Try Before You Buy, powered by Blackcart, is an industry-and-platform agnostic technology that empowers merchants to give their customers all the perks of an in-store shopping experience online. Shoppers abandon carts because they're unsure about sizing, fit, quality, and appearance. Try Before You Buy allows them to experience your products just like they're accustomed to doing in brick-and-mortar stores. Shoppers select items to try and checkout with no upfront payment to then see, feel and try your products at home. They are automatically charged for items they keep and send back the rest.

While no upfront payment is required, shoppers do provide a valid payment method during checkout. Blackcart's best-in-class Fraud AI is built especially for Try Before You Buy, and eliminates the need for pre-authorized holds or credit checks.

How can Try Before You Buy help my business?

Online shopping is a great customer experience and it's becoming the preferred way to buy for many customers. However, one part of online shopping doesn't stack up to the in-store experience. Shoppers want to see, feel and try on products before buying. This uncertainty in online shopping leads to lost sales, abandoned carts and frustrated shoppers.

Try Before You Buy eliminates the uncertainty with online shopping by allowing shoppers to try your products at home before purchasing. Promoting Try Before You Buy on your ecommerce store actually changes shopper behavior. Shoppers feel comfortable filling their carts, as they would in the store, leading to bigger orders and more kept items.
