Shopping App: A new add-on to increase conversion, the Quick Buy button

Written by Marie Pireddu  on  Wednesday 12 August 2020

Easy navigation and smooth ordering process are two of the main reasons shoppers will stay or leave a shopping app. 

You can improve this shopping experience by creating smooth ordering directly from the Home page or from a collection. Instead of navigating to single product pages, your clients can shop directly from the products list

By allowing your clients to quickly select products, you can speed up their shopping flow on your app, which then will result in increasing your conversion rate. It might also encourage them to buy more.

For example, if you're a caterer or selling beauty product , your clients are most likely going to buy more than one product from you. If they are buying a facial cleanser, they will probably also buy a moisturizer or exfoliant. 

Thank to our new add-on, you can now add this feature to your Shopping App.
