eBay Instant checkout, transform your blog or website into a webshop!


The Monotote Technology allows you to easily create seamless shopping experiences for your website visitors, by allowing them to directly purchase showcased products from pictures, links and videos without leaving your blog or website. On average, visitors on Monotote enabled pages spend twice as long on site = double the session time. This increases the amount of ads served per visitor, and generate 3X more clicks on product links. Resulting in increased product engagement and a conversion lift of 20-30%.

How it works?

Monotote offers an easy-to-use, plug and play technology. Once enabled, it connects to all products on eBay.

You must enable marketplace eBay in your settings before the products are available through the Shopping Cart Technology System.
