How We Increased Average Order Value (AOV) by 13% for Our Shopify Client with CRO

The Challenge
Our client is a leader in natural smoking alternatives with a goal to improve the revenue they were bringing in MoM.

The challenge was to determine why people weren’t buying more and get to work to increase monthly revenue.

The Approach
We started by breaking down sales performance by device type (mobile vs desktop).

In our research, we found noticeably lower add-to-cart rates on mobile versus desktop. We also found that the order value was below the client’s goals across all device types.

Mobile tactics
To tackle the lower add-to-cart challenge, we introduced a sticky add-to-cart button on the mobile version of their website.

This ensured that the add-to-cart option remained constantly visible and accessible to users as they scrolled through product pages.

The idea was that this would improve user experience by offering a seamless shopping process and also serve as a continuous call-to-action, prompting users to move forward with their purchasing decisions.

Cross-device tactics
To improve AOV, we implemented post-purchase upsell flows that would enable customers to purchase extra items at a discount immediately after the initial buy.

These are upsells that happen AFTER someone has already made a purchase rather than before. Our thought process here was to provide a less intrusive prompt for additional purchases that would ultimately improve customer satisfaction while strategically increasing transaction values.

Our hypotheses were correct on both the mobile optimization and the post-purchase upsell experience, which led to a 9% improvement in cart additions on mobile and a 13% increase in AOV. 

This success illustrates our solution's effectiveness and the importance of aligning with user behaviors.

The enhanced mobile experience now effectively converts more browsing into purchases, benefiting both the client and their customers through improved engagement and financial performance.
