Add to Cart? “Death Care” Is an Online Shopping Category

By July 19, 2016Snack
The world of eCommerce has allowed consumers to literally buy anything online — even their final purchases.

Whether you’re planning ahead (like way ahead) or unfortunately have to plan a funeral for a loved one, the internet, predictably, can make things easier. These companies are simplifying death services by providing eCommerce options for everything from coffins to estate planning.


If there is one thing a casket should be,  it’s dignified. And that can be tricky when ordering one online. Dignified Coffins takes the guesswork out of ordering. Buyers simply choose the coffin of their choice, add it to their cart and check out. Coupons welcome!



What’s a funeral without the overpowering scent of flowers? Major brands including Teleflora and 1-800-Flowers make it easy to buy and send flowers with a few clicks of the mouse.


Estate Planning

Gone are the days of having to schedule an in-person meeting with a financial advisor to discuss estate planning. Online Estate Planning allows those who prefer a less-personal touch when it comes to their assets’ final arrangements to complete legal documents via an online rep.
