The Cart Drawer is one of the most underutilized spots on any e-commerce store. It is one of the highest converting spots to upsell on your site. Making sure to optimize this space is a crucial step in ensuring your store is running at peak performance.

Best Practices for Cross-selling in a Cart Drawer

Through our working with 1000s of Merchants, we have found 3 key areas that have the most significant impact on AOV and Conversion Rate

1. Free Shipping Meter.

2. Personalized product recommendations.

3. Switch To Subscription (If applicable).

Free Shipping Meter

A Free Shipping Meter at the top of your Cart Flyout is an incredibly effective tool to help bump AOVs. Letting people see exactly how far they are from free shipping can help boost AOV by almost 5%.

AI Recommended Products

Using Rebuys data driven AI to make smart recommendations is a crucial piece of ensuring your Cart Drawer is performing at 100%. Make sure to keep your product recommendations above the fold and visible so your customers can see relevant and enticing products. We suggest a 1 column line layout to maximize space and improve conversions.
