Using Quick Order on Your WooCommerce Store To Boost Conversions
More sales. More Conversions. Happy Customers.
For WooCommerce store owners, that’s the holy grail of a successful business. But success in all three factors can only come about once you’ve implemented a good conversion rate strategy for your store.
Before implementation, however, the pressing question is how can you go about creating such a strategy?
Well, the first logical step you would want to take is to map the current journey of your store customers, try to find hurdles within that journey, and take the necessary steps to make it as seamless as possible.
A/B testing your product pages, optimizing your content, creating text-based CTA’s on your landing pages; there are plenty of ways you can go about optimizing your store for conversions.
But what if you’re strapped for time, and want a solution that helps you see gradual improvements in conversion rates by placing the least amount of effort?
Fortunately, there is a plugin that fulfills that purpose and more. In this article, we’ll be talking about Quick Order for WooCommerce – a single page ordering plugin that helps you streamline the customer journey by minimizing the steps it takes for customers to order a product.
Faster Ordering, More Conversions
WooCommerce Quick Order integrates a bulk order table on your WooCommerce store.
With the plugin installed, you are providing your customers with the option to order products quickly. Customers can search for, specify the quantity, and add products to the cart, directly from the order form.
For regular customers who know what they want to purchase from your store, the plugin helps them make purchases without the need to browse through the catalog and lengthy product pages.
In the following guide, we’re going to demonstrate how you can streamline the shopping experience of your customers, and how it can help you boost conversion rates for your WooCommerce store.
But before we do all that, we feel that we need to lay some groundwork for the plugin.
What Is Quick Order and Why Your Store Needs It
For customers who purchase store items regularly, or have a set list of products that they usually buy from your store, the process of manually adding each individual product to the cart becomes time-consuming and repetitive. They already know the product, and want to order it without wasting any time.
Because of this, your store runs the risk of losing those customers.
With the WooCommerce Quick Order plugin installed, you can streamline the manual ordering process through the bulk order table.
Let’s take an in-depth look at how you can go about achieving that.
An Example of Poor Customer Experience
Customers log onto your eCommerce store to purchase a list of products that they’ve previously purchased before – they know what they’ve come for.
Supposedly, if their wishlist consists of 20 products, then they’ll have to browse through 20 different product pages, and individually add each product to cart. Only after they’ve done that can they check out and eventually finish their purchase.
Only for new customers who are looking for more information about a product would this entire journey make sense since they’ve visited the page for a specific reason. For repeat customers, it’s just a waste of time.
Streamline The Repetitive Process With Quick Order
The same customers log on to your store. Again, they know what they’ve come for… However, unlike the first scenario, instead of going through individual product pages, they visit the Quick Order page.
There, they have a bulk order form from which they order products directly. The top of the table has a search box where they type in the name of the products they wish to purchase from your store.
They specify the quantities required for said products and add those products to the table.
After adding the products to cart, all they have to do is click the “Add to Cart” button, and voila…all the products are ready to be checked out – directly from the quick order page.
Would It Work for Your Store?
Built primarily for companies catering to bulk purchases, the plugin works for a variety of different stores in different industries, regardless of whether they are B2C or B2B. The following are some of those industries and stores:
- Foods and beverage industries.
- Fashion stores
- LED stores
- Tents and decoration stores.
- Auto Parts Store
- Furniture store
- Computers and electronics stores.
- Pharma and Medical Stores
All in all, this plugin can be used on many online stores. If you have a lot of repeat customers who already know what they’re looking for or if your customers tend to buy in bulk, a quick order form can be a big time-saver for them.
Setting Up WooCommerce Quick Order
Creating a Quick Order Table on your WooCommerce site is simple!
After installing the plugin, what you would want to do is create a page. Go to Pages > Add New.
From there, the Gutenberg block editor will open up. Type in the name of your page, which, in our case, is “Quick Order Table.”
To integrate the bulk order table with the page, copy and paste this shortcode [wqbo_quick_order] below the name in the editor.Click on Publish, and visit your site. In the navigation bar, you will see the bulk order table installed with the name you gave it.
Try testing the plugin by entering a few product names, their respective quantities, and then adding them all to cart.
If you want to customize the column names, you can do that by visiting WooCommerce > Quick Order and then editing the title fields.
When you click on Save, you can view the changes at the front-end.
