Klarna - Buy Now Pay Later
Consumer spending will be at a high during BFCM. And for many consumers, budgets are tight this time of year. Make it easier for your customers to get the products they want without having to stretch themselves too thin by leveraging Klarna’s buy-now-pay later solutions.
Your customers can choose to pay in 4 equal installments, pay in 30 days, or to finance the purchase over 6 - 36 months. The best part? While the customer is financing their purchase, you get paid in full.
On average, ecommerce brands that offer this payment flexibility through Klarna see a 41% increase in AOV and a 30% increase in conversion rate 🤯
Route - Tracking and Package Protection
We all know shipping was a nightmare last year. Carriers were understaffed and completely overwhelmed with the ecommerce boom. Packages were getting lost left and right, and if they made it to your doorstep, they were usually a few weeks late.
What did this mean for us brand owners? Absolute operational chaos.
Route is here to fix this. They offer an intuitive branded tracking system so your customers can easily track their orders and get on-demand updates. Further, Route’s package protection covers product loss, theft, or damage. This gives customers peace of mind and empowers them to self-resolve issues in just a few clicks instead of having to contact your customer support team.
Brands using Route see up to 75% fewer support tickets while increasing cart conversion rates.
EcoCart - Carbon Neutral Orders
People are in the spirit of giving. So give them an easy option to continue giving but in a way that positively impacts the environment: making their order carbon neutral.
Believe it or not, nearly 70% of consumers check if a brand is sustainable before they make a purchase, so sustainability is becoming increasingly important. EcoCart makes carbon neutral orders simple, and it’s completely free to you, the shop owner.
On average, brands leveraging EcoCart are seeing an average cart conversion boost of 14%!
