Last modified: June 19, 2021
When it comes to building your website you want to make sure that the buying process is as smooth as possible. If someone finds it tough to add something to a cart, or harder to remove excess items, then you have a higher level of abandoned carts than you require.
You already face the potential of 80% of your customers abandoning their carts. And if they have a negative impact on your website when ordering (or attempting to), retaining their custom is going to be harder.
There are numerous ways that you can make the process to buying easier for your customers, but quantity selection with plus and minus signs are some of the best options. This way customers don’t have to keep on clicking on the ‘Add to Cart’ button to add another item to their cart, they can just click on the plus or minus. This also allows them to easily adjust the quantities when on the cart page.
Here is how you can add these little experience-enhancing buttons to your website.
