Persuade your shoppers with offers

When on the cart page, you can persuade your shoppers to add more products to the cart by offering something. Say, if you offer free shipping or discount on orders above a certain amount, then you can remind your shoppers of how much more they need to spend to get that offer.

Allow shoppers to save items for later

If an user feels that they cannot afford the total cost of their order, they might remove a few items from the cart. Provide an option to save or move those products to a wishlist so that they don’t lose track of it. You could also remind them of the products in the wishlist the next time one of them is on the cart page.
