You might have known the selling techniques such as upselling/ cross-selling or creating a sense of urgency and scarcity to speed up customers’ purchasing decisions. How about combining these two techniques and make them work complementary to achieve your sales target?

Fortunately, Countdown Cart and Boost Sales apps can effectively help you do so. In this article, we’ve summed up the best practice to set up these 2 apps simultaneously that urges customers to buy not only “right now” but also “as many as they can” 😉

Let us give you a quick review first: Countdown Cart app creates urgency offers to boost conversion rate while Boost Sales app increases your average order value by up-selling and cross-selling.

How to set it up

First of all, create Countdown Cart’s Countdown Timer, Stock Countdown and Social Proof in the app dashboard as normal to urge customers to pick the product now. In the example below, we set up Countdown Cart offers and have them displayed on our product page Puppy Travel Bottle. The offers will show on the product page like this:

Second, set up Boost Sales‘ offers to show up, recommending more upselling/cross-selling products when customers add the targeted products to cart to encourage them to buy even more.

For example, we set up a cross-selling bundle for the product Travel Bottles in the picture above. So right when customers click to add  into cart, they would be likely to be motivated to buy the whole bundle with the better price:

Boost Sales and Countdown carts won’t take you more than 10 minutes to perfectly set up yet they bring a tremendous result in your sales.
