Have you ever lined up outside of a big box store after a Thanksgiving meal to get that great Black Friday deal? Or camped out overnight for concert tickets? Or rushed to pre-order that hot new smartphone online at midnight?
Camping outside of a strip mall on a holiday in November just to get a discount on a TV seems a little crazy, right?
So why do we do it?
Because of scarcity. Scarcity has a profound effect on human psychology.
When we believe a product is in short supply, we want it more!
No one wants to miss out on a hot product or a great deal.
You can get more sales for your store by leveraging the powerful principle of persuasion.
And it all happens automatically.
Whenever your product's inventory drops below a threshold you specify, While Supplies Last automatically adds a note to the product's page stating the remaining inventory, like this:
By showing that a product may sell out soon, it creates a greater sense of urgency to buy.
The biggest online retailers are all using this same principle of scarcity to boost conversions and sell more product.
You choose the color, font size, the inventory threshold, and even the text. (Or leave it at our best practice default settings.)
