Shoppers are constantly looking for products to buy. They have a short attention span and will often abandon their shopping cart if they don't find what they want in the first few pages of search results. And even if they do find something they like, they'll often leave the site to search for a better price.
Limited stock notifications are an effective way to increase sales on Shopify stores because it informs customers that the product is about to sell out, and that there is a limited number of items left. This helps shoppers make decisions faster, and prevents them from leaving the page because of a lack of information on when or how many items are available.
The idea behind this technique is that people want what they can't have. It's human nature to want something when we know that it won't be available for long. If you're running out of stock, then make sure your customers know about it!
- Limited stock notifications will increase the number of customer conversions by increasing urgency and decreasing decision time.
- Customers who are presented with limited stock notifications are more likely to buy the product because they feel like they have missed out on an opportunity if they don't buy it now.
- Limited stock notifications also provide an opportunity for you to up-sell products that complement what the customer is looking at, increasing your revenue per customer.
