We take user feedback and suggestions very serious, and based off all your input we added a few new features and there is now a Premium Version. The original standard version is untouched, we only added a Premium version with new features. Those features are:

  • Display motivator messages only to specific countries

  • Automatically add a free product to the card when a users reaches a goal amount in cart.

  • Schedule motivators to start and stop automatically at certain times


The standard version is $4.99 and is a simple, yet brilliant, app allows you to "motivate" your customers in an elegant way to spend more each time they add something to their cart... And it really works!

How does it work?

Before you create a motivator with the Standard version you need some type of "goal" already setup. Free shipping is by far the most popular. So let's say you have free shipping in your store for all orders over $100. Once you have that setup in your store you great a matching goal in the Motivator app to encourage customers to get to that goal.

Next you give it a little Mojo. Each time a customer clicks the "Add to Cart" button they'll see a message telling them how much more they need to spend to reach the goal. You can word it any way you like to jive with your clientele.

  • "SWEET! Spend 37.21 more and get free shipping!"

  • "Just 37.21 more and you get a free shirt!"

  • "Nice! You're only 37.21 away from a free shirt!"

The dollar amount is automatically calculated but the rest of the message before and after is controlled by you.

The Premium version is $9.99 and has all the standard features, PLUS these three additions:

Geo Targeting

This new premium feature allows you to target your motivator messages by country. If you only want to offer free shipping in specific countries now you can choose to only show the motivator message in just the countries you select.

Free Gifting

Now you can actually offer free gifts as motivation for customers to spend more. You don't need any other apps to do it, you simply select the product you'd like to offer, select what dollar amount they need in their cart and when they reach the goal it adds it to the cart!

You can create multiple motivators too! For example spend $100 and get a free hat, Spend $200 and get a free shirt. It's the Classic Spend X get X type promotion and what's great about doing it with this app is the motivator is built in!

☞ Click here for an example
On this example page you'll notice that if you add the product to the cart it tells you want you need to spend to get the free gift. Make sure you add $100 to the cart and watch the magic happen!


Running a promotion for a certain time period that you want to promote? Now you can schedule the motivator to automatically start and stop anytime in the future.

It works on every version of your website too :-) Desktop, iPad, iPhone... you name it!

This is a simple little app that when used properly will increase your total average checkout amount on every order!

The Motivator reviews (359)


Pretty damn motivational if you ask me!


We geared our entire holiday sales around this app + 2 others from BOLD & all 3 failed us miserably. Free products would be added to the cart about 50% of the time. NOW after I've turned off the "goals" they're still rolling in with customers who have doubled up on discounts... yesterday's & today's discounts together. Literally costing us thousands of dollars this holiday! Just based on our experience needing it to work properly for ONE DAY, I would avoid at all costs! (Especially if you run a very big online shop & have a lot to lose if it doesn't work properly!) We are not looking forward to the headache this app has created for us today.


Been using this app for a while and the results are amazing! So simple to use and really effective.


Awesome App!!! Works great on our website: www.onyxhearts.com!


Great app with really good customer service. The app, especially the Premium version, is fantastic and very easy to configure. Customer service from the app creators is top notch and addressed our concerns very quickly.


Good Service, it's quick to set up. But it has been working sporadically, not every order automatically gets our freebie added to it.


Great customer service - as expected from the Bold Commerce team. You guys rock.


Works well and great customer service.


We have been using this at IndieVinylDen.com for a few weeks and so far we are more than pleases! We would recommend to anyone want to motivate your customers to buy more.


App does what it says. The free gift isnt as good as it sounds as you cant let customers choose a product variant. If you have multiple variants (e.g. S, M, L, XL) you can only give away a specific variant (e.g. S).
