Design Shopify Exit Popups That Work

An exit popup on DoC's Shopify store

Wondering why so many visitors abandon their cart on your Shopify store? Don’t worry, you’re not the only one. According to Monetate’s latest e-commerce report, only 2.6% of sessions end up in a purchase. Reasons may vary (second thoughts, user doesn’t have his credit card, procrastination…), but this means there is a HUGE opportunity here to increase your sales.

Wisepops allows you to tap into this revenue potential. Our exit popups enable you to display smart messages to your visitors just before they leave: “Save your cart and come back later;” “Here is a coupon if you order within 24 hours;” “Your order is not completed yet”, etc. These messages can help you retain up to 15% of leaving visitors.

What’s more? Wisepops connects with your Shopify in one click and is ridiculously easy to use.

Four Tips to Create the Best Email Popup for Your Shopify Store

Put Yourself in Your Visitors’ Shoes

When preparing your popup, think as a user. You’re about to leave your website; what could drive you to subscribe? What could convince you to stay on the page instead of leaving the website? Use what you know about your visitors. If they’re bargain hunters, use a coupon. If they’re fashionistas, propose styling tips. If they’re photography addicts, offer them a free ebook containing the best photography tips, etc.

Design Large Campaigns

Remember, the user will see your campaign a few milliseconds before confirming his intention to leave your website. You need a popup design that will catch your user’s attention (first step) and convince him that there is something worth staying for (second step). First condition for your popup to work? It needs to be extra visible. The user should NOT miss your message.

Make Your Design a Reflection of Your Brand

Your visitors need to understand that your popup is part of your website. Otherwise, it could be confused with an ad. Use visuals, logos and colors that reinforce your website identity.

Create More Than One Campaign

Should your users see the same popup whether they exit your website on a product page or on the cart page? Of course not! You need to create multiple exit campaigns to better adapt to your users’ situation. A user exiting from your cart page is probably worth more to your business and may deserve a stronger incentive than a user on your homepage.
