SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Online merchants leveraging Go Daddy’s Quick Shopping Cart tool are bucking current economic trends, growing their business and generating more money than last year with their online stores. Quick Shopping Cart creates a fully functional e-commerce Web site for companies doing business exclusively online, or brick and motor stores looking to expand their Internet presence.

Go Daddy’s Quick Shopping Cart statistics, comparing July, August and September of this year to last, reveal an increase of more than 100 percent, in terms of revenue generated and the number of different vendors selling products. The trend shows no sign of slowing.

More businesses are turning to the Web as a revenue stream, especially as the economy struggles. According to IDC, nearly half of all Internet users will make online purchases in 2009,i which explains why more businesses are expanding their potential customer base on the Internet.

“The Internet is where the action is these days, and we don’t see that changing,” said Go Daddy CEO and Founder Bob Parsons. “Quick Shopping Cart makes it about as painless as possible for merchants to get online. Once their customers visit the e-commerce site, they discover it’s both reliable and easy to use – which translates into dollars.”

Overall statistics point to financial gains on sites equipped with Quick Shopping Cart. Consider Hanh Court. His online store,, concentrates on automobile lighting. During the third quarter alone, the site recorded a 115 percent surge in revenue this year over last.

"Let's face it, everyone is looking to save money these days," said Court. "Quick Shopping Cart works because it's an e-commerce tool that is priced right for me and helps customers cut to the chase as far as inventory and purchase paths."

Quick Shopping Cart handles inventory and shipping calculations on the fly. It also is able to sync with QuickBooks for business owners looking to keep their accounting in order on a single program.
