CartMagician PRO is the easiest way to incorporate augmented reality (AR) experiences into your WooCommerce store, ready for mobile shopping users on both iOS and Android.
The CartMagician Pro plugin integrates directly into your WooCommerce store, enabling you to quickly add and manage AR content for iOS and Android, including 3D previews. The plugin is super quick to install and you don’t need any web development experience to use it.
Enhance your customer’s online shopping experience – no apps needed
Have you noticed that your customers are returning their online purchases because they don’t suit them, or their surroundings? Are your customers abandoning their shopping cart because they aren’t sure if they’ve made the right choice?
AR helps you bring your WooCommerce store to life by offering customers an interactive digital twin that gives them a virtual try-before-you-buy experience in their own environment.
The CartMagician Pro for WooCommerce plugin uses WebAR – an augmented reality experience that is held within a webpage so that it can be accessed using a smartphone.
Customers simply open your WooCommerce store using the website browser on their compatible Apple iOS and Android device and tap on the product to activate the content in front of them. No additional apps required!
This amazing technology means that customers can see your products at the correct size and scale in hyper-realistic detail. From artwork and photography to furniture, rugs, fashion accessories and even kitchens, it’s possible to view a whole range of products with WebAR.
WebAR isn’t just a fun, novel experience, it’s a powerful sales tool that can
- Boost sales by helping consumers make the right choice, reducing returns and disappointment.
- Help you deliver interactive online product launches.
- Hold your customer’s ever-decreasing attention spans, keeping them on your site for longer.
- Increase website traffic when happy customers share your content via social media or refer their friends and family.
- Increase repeat business: after all, if you knew you could purchase the perfect product the first time, wouldn’t you go back?

Frequently Asked Questions
What is WebAR?
Web-based Augmented Reality, or WebAR for short, is an augmented reality experience that is hosted within a webpage. Customers simply open a custom URL on their web browser using their smartphone – either by tapping on an icon or image – and use their camera to view content in their environment.
What is the difference between a USDZ file and a GLB file?
A USDZ file is a web-based 3D AR file format which is viewed as AR content when you click on it while browsing the web or shopping online using an Apple iOS device. Created by Pixar, USDZ is a rich format that can display vivid and detailed objects as well as animations.
Built-in apps, such as Safari, Messages, Mail, News, and Notes, use AR Quick Look to display USDZ files of virtual objects in 3D or AR on iPhone and iPad. USDZ files can be viewed directly in Safari and Chrome web browsers on all new Apple devices with iOS 12+ and beyond.
GLB/GLTF is a 3D file format that’s used in augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), games, and web applications on Android devices because it supports motion and animation. Another advantage of the format is its small size and fast load times.
How do I create USDZ and GLB files?
You can convert your existing 2D images and 3D models into AR products and experiences and add them directly to your site with the CartMagician’s Conversion Tool.
