One of the best ways to capture customers who wants to receive your product newsletters and marketing emails is to put a checkbox on your site checkout to ask them if they want to receive marketing emails. Note that people who purchased product in your shopping site doesn’t necessarily mean that it is fine to send marketing emails to these customers. In fact, email marketing companies like Infusionsoft strictly prohibits sending marketing emails to people who made purchases if they didn’t sign-up to receive your newsletters. While Infusionsoft strictly doesn’t allow this, you don’t see a way to put newsletter signup checkbox to their native shopping cart module. Still it is important to do this to comply with different countries’ E-commerce standards and also to send marketing emails to people who are genuinely interested to… Read More »Adding a Newsletter Signup checkbox in your Woocommerce Checkout

By default Infusionsoft only connects to few merchant solutions like Sagepay, Authorize.net, or WePay. Because of this, many business owners have some trouble finding a good payment gateway during the early stages of their business. This is especially true for startup business owners and to businesses located not in US or UK. Most merchant accounts Infusionsoft connects to are designed for big businesses and only supports major countries like US or UK. With Woocommerce, you have more options and you can use payment gateways designed for startups such as Stripe, Braintree or Amazon Payments. If you are located in India you can use Amazon payments in woocommerce and connect to infusionsoft using InfusedWoo. Same is true to South Africa (Payfast), Japan (Stripe), Brazil (Stripe), Hong Kong (Stripe), Singapore (Stripe), and as well as Malaysia (Braintree).… Read More »Bridge Infusionsoft to More Competitive Payment Gateways – Stripe, Braintree, Amazon Payments …

One of the best ways to increase repeat purchases is to give incentives when they purchase your product. According to a survey, customers are almost twice more likely to purchase again a product from your shop if they are given a discount coupon. Usually static coupons are used (e.g. Coupons that doesn’t expire and has infinite number of usages) but this is not advised as coupons can be easily passed publicly to other users and can be used by users who are not eligible to use the coupon code. In this guide, you learn know how to auto-generate a personalized coupon code for the customer right after they have purchased in your shop and limit the usage of the coupon for that specific user. 1.

Why provide one-click upsells? Think about this for a moment. What are the reasons you will leave a shopping cart or a checkout process? One of the biggest reasons customers abandon the checkout process is because of the number of steps (or clicks) required to complete an order. In other words, every additional click increasingly discourages customers to complete an order. As you reduce the number of clicks required to complete an order, more orders will convert. That is, people want it fast and easy— NO to filling out lengthy forms and/or clicking several buttons. If possible, they just want to click once to order a product. With Rocket One-Click, you can provide one-click upsell buttons. And customers just need to click once to finish their order. Did you know, existing customers… Read More »Boost your sales by providing One-Click Upsells
In InfusedWoo version 2.1, we have released Thank You page control feature. With this feature, you can now change the redirect URL after your customers finish their checkout. To give a little background, woocommerce by default sends customers to an “order-received” page, which shows the order information and is a quite flat / dry page for your customers to be redirected to after they finish their checkout. For Infusionsoft-powered businesses, controlling thank you pages is very important. For example, we want to personalize the thank you page based on the products they purchased. Or perhaps, we want to send them to a special offer page after their purchase or give them a special coupon code. Or for some techies out there, we want to send them to different service after purchase and pass contact information… Read More »Controlling Thank You Page in Woocommerce using InfusedWoo
Today, I had a consultation session with one of my clients using Infusionsoft and their biggest frustration is their non-mobile-ready shopping cart. They sell online content and mp3’s and around 40% to 50% of their customers visit their website using smartphone or tablet device. Unfortunately, Infusionsoft’s available shopping cart themes are not responsive (or mobile-ready) and making their shopping cart mobile ready would require you to hire a very proficient programmer (and probably expensive) to turn their shopping cart themes to mobile-ready themes. And also Infusionsoft have a very limited themes to choose from which is not good because there’s a high chance that the themes may not suit your company branding. And why this is very important? An article from Fast Company tells us that mobile and tablet users spends more money than desktop… Read More »Is your online shop mobile ready?
One of the problems Infusionsoft owners face when setting up their online shopping cart is the very limited options of the payment gateways they can provide for their customers. Infusionsoft gives you only a few merchant account options. Moreover, the problem is not just about the limited merchant options but also: These available merchant account options may not be supported in your country, especially if you are outside US Most of the merchant account options Infusionsoft provide doesn’t support multiple currencies Opening an account on these available merchant account options takes too much time and they require detailed information about your business before they can enable your merchant account. With woocommerce, all these problems are solved. Woocommerce provides a wide array of options when it comes to payment gateway solutions (see table below) There are… Read More »Expand Infusionsoft Payment Options with Woocommerce
