The checkout process can be considered complex if you ask for too much information or require the customer to register before checking out. It’s important to remember that the checkout process should be as simple and short as possible.

Be available to answer all questions that your customers may have about your products, delivery, or pricing.

‘Only browsing’

Because buyers are tech-savvy and always on the lookout for the best deal, oftentimes they add items into their cart, but also look for the same items on other sites with better conditions (shipping, price, date & time of delivery.) In essence, these types of buyers haven’t made up their mind yet in regards to which site they should purchase from.

By utilizing proactive chat invitations, you can easily provide the customer with a positive service experience that convinces them that your shop is the right one to buy from.
