In the competitive world of e-commerce, enhancing the cart experience can significantly boost conversions and average order value. Recently, we partnered with Jessica’s More Than Lips brand, an online store specializing in vegan lip balms, to optimize their cart using our innovative FlexUpsell Cart application. Here’s a step-by-step breakdown of how we achieved this transformation.

Research and Offer Identification

  1. Client Consultation
    • Initial discussions with the client to understand their business goals and customer behavior.
    • Identification of potential offers that can be highlighted in the cart to incentivize purchases.
  2. Understanding Buyer Psychology
    • Analysis of customer journey, particularly focusing on those who have shown intent to purchase.
    • Strategic placement of offers and messages to encourage additional purchases without being intrusive.


  1. Free Shipping Bar Calculator
    • Integration of a dynamic free shipping bar calculator to inform customers how close they are to qualifying for free shipping.
    • Example: “You are $5.02 CAD away from Free Canadian Shipping!”
  2. Offers and Discounts
    • Subscription Offer: Encouraging customers to subscribe for 15% off monthly, seamlessly integrated within the cart.
    • Bulk Discount: Setting up an automatic discount for purchasing 5 products, displayed as “Buy 5 Get $5 Off”.
  3. 1-Click Upsell Feature
    • Simplification of adding more products to the cart with a single click.
    • Real-time updates to the free shipping status and discounts applied.

    • Customizable colors, elements, and offers to align with the brand’s aesthetics.

Final Touches

  1. Visible Checkout Button
    • Displaying the total price on the checkout button, clearly indicating if free shipping is achieved.
    • Ensuring payment methods (e.g., card, PayPal) are prominently shown to reassure customers of their options.
  2. Non-Interfering Design
    • Ensuring all strategic messages and offers are presented in a way that does not disrupt the shopping experience.
    • Maintaining a balance between encouraging additional purchases and ensuring a smooth checkout process.
