As part of WineDirect's commitment to innovation and best-in-class technology, we've spent a lot of time optimizing our online checkout experience to help you drive website sales. Over 3/4 of online shoppers add items to their cart, but don't complete the purchase. A sub-par checkout experience can exacerbate this and cause you to lose precious sales.
With our updated checkout tools, we've made five key improvements to reduce customer frustration and increase conversion - all while keeping the tools simple for you to use.
1. More Login, Payment & Shipping Options
Make it easy for your customers to checkout by offering them options. They can checkout as a guest, login with Facebook, or login to get their club discounts. You can offer PayPal as a payment option and you will soon have access to Fedex HAL (Hold at Location, currently in Beta testing) options as well.
2. Seamless Website Experience
If your checkout page doesn't look and feel like the rest of your website, customers may lose confidence and not complete the purchase. WineDirect enables you to easily apply your own brand to our checkout pages including a customized header, over 900 Google fonts and customizable colors.
3. Optimized Ecommerce Experience
We've designed our checkout tools to increase sales conversion, reduce cart abandonments and minimize the number of clicks it takes to complete a purchase. We did the heavy lifting to identify ecommerce best practices so that your customers enjoy an simple, fast checkout experience.
4. Innovative Marketing Tools
We're also layering in new, integrated marketing tools such as One Click Offers. One Click Offers is a unique promotional tool that allows you to automatically add specific items to the shopping cart via a custom URL. When customers click the link, they'll be directed straight to the checkout page with their shopping cart pre-filled. Fewer clicks for them, more online sales for you. Out of the 250 wineries actively using this feature, we've seen an increase of almost 80% in average order value (AOV). One winery even saw a 386% increase in AOV!
5. Easy to Update
Not only are our checkout tools best-in-class, they are also easy for you to enable and update - no costly designer required. You can even preview changes and run orders in a test environment before pushing them live. When you're ready, it takes just one click to update.
