A higher conversion rate in e-commerce is directly linked to a smooth check-out experience. The easier you make the check-out process for customers, the more ROI you begin to see from your store. In this billion-dollar-a-year industry, you do not want your website to have a tedious and long check-out process and lose out on potential revenue. This is where a tool called ‘Sticky Cart’ or ‘Cart Drawer’ helps you out by which you can offer quick and smooth checkout for your customers.
What is a sticky cart/cart drawer?
A sticky cart is also known as the floating cart will be always visible on the top of the page. Even when you scroll down the page the sticky add to cart will be there which makes it easy for a customer to quickly add a product to the cart and have a direct checkout. Store owners can enable or disable the sticky side cart feature at any time and place it where they want.
A cart drawer or a side cart is a good replacement for your cart page because every time customers don’t need to go on the cart page to see all the details of the cart. A side cart makes it easier for your customers to complete the purchase with one click instant checkout which will automatically increase the conversion rate of your store. By giving an enhanced customer experience you can reduce the cart abandonment rate of your store.
Benefits of using a sticky side cart or cart drawer in your store
Cart will be always visible
When you add a sticky cart to your store then it will be always visible on the page even when your customers scroll down the page by which they can easily access the cart instead of scrolling back up every time.
Display brief product details
Having a sticky add to cart button on your store will help you to display brief product details like name, price, image, quantity, etc. So that your customers can see all the important details from the sticky side cart itself. This can actually make it easy for your customers and give them a speedy checkout.
