Giving your customers a sense of urgency and demand is one of the most effective ways of influencing their purchase decisions.
Happy Shopper does exactly that - by showing your customers how many people are looking at a specific product in your store at any given time.
How exactly does Happy Shoppers work?
Happy Shoppers takes form of a fully customizable box placed directly underneath your “Add To Cart” Button. The app automatically detects the number of users looking at the page(s) on which it’s implemented, and relays that information back to the users themselves. Thus, establishing a sense of urgency and demand.
The guys at booking.com implemented this feature a while ago and they haven’t looked back since. Now, it’s finally available on Shopify too.
Think of it as an elegant alternative to countdown timers and various other urgency-inducing apps.
The box itself is completely customizable. You can edit:
It is also mobile, desktop and emoji supported.
Benefits & Features:
Where can the widget be placed?
As of today, the box can only be placed underneath the “Add To Cart” Button.
What if I’m driving very little traffic?
The app isn’t visible if there aren’t at least two people on the site at any given moment.
The science behind the app:
Behavioral psychologists found that “urgent situations cause us to suspend deliberate thought and to act quickly.”
Creating a sense of urgency in the sales process motivates potential buyers to take action on your site. Our goal is to break this cognitive friction that delays people from converting. The longer your prospect waits to make a purchase, the less likely the sale will happen.
Every extra second a user spends on your site translates into unrelated life distractions and mental barriers to hinder the deal.
