Welcome to "Learn with GemPages"! In this article, we will explore different strategies for redirecting customers when they click on the cart button. By utilizing effective redirection methods, you can enhance the shopping experience for your customers and potentially reduce cart abandonment rates. We will also discuss how to configure the redirection settings in GemPages Editor and customize the text messages displayed during the add-to-cart process. So, let's dive in!
When it comes to redirecting customers after they click on the cart button, there are three popular options to consider. Each method has its own benefits, and you can choose the one that best suits your store's requirements.
2.1 Custom Option
The custom option is the most popular method for redirecting customers. It allows customers to change or add products anywhere on your website, without being redirected to a separate page. This seamless integration reduces the chances of cart abandonment and provides a smooth shopping experience.
2.2 Checkout Method
The checkout method directs customers straight to the checkout page, bypassing the cart page altogether. This method is ideal for single-product stores or stores where simplicity is a key element. By skipping the cart page, you streamline the purchase process and make it easier for customers to complete their transactions quickly.
2.3 Cart Page Method
The old-school way of redirecting customers is to direct them to the cart page after adding a product. This method involves customers going to the cart page, completing the payment at the checkout, and then returning to continue shopping. While this method follows the conventional shopping process, it is essential to understand your customers' buying habits before deciding to implement it.
Configuring Redirection in GemPages Editor
To configure the redirection settings in GemPages Editor, follow these simple steps:
- Open the preferred template in the GemPages Editor page.
- Click on the (P) Cart button to select it.
- Switch the handle on the left sidebar to enable more settings.
- Under the "Go to" section, you will find three options: Custom, Checkout, and Cart.
- These options offer almost identical customizable fields.
- Depending on your preferred redirection method, select the appropriate option.
- If you choose the custom URL option, you can insert a link or pick a particular page for redirection.
- It is recommended to leave the "Pick Link" function blank to keep customers on the current page.
- Customize the Sending Text, Thank-you Text, and Success Message according to your preferences.
- Set the Continue Link field to specify the link for the "Continue Shopping" option in the Success Message.
- If left blank, the default link will be the All Products page.
- Once you have made all the necessary changes, click Publish to apply the modifications on the live page.
The Add-to-Cart Process
Now, let's walk through the add-to-cart process from start to finish:
- After customers click the Add-to-cart button, the Sending Text will appear.
- The Thank-you Text will be displayed once the product is successfully added to the cart.
- The Success Message will follow along, providing confirmation to the customers.
- The Call to Action text will prompt customers to take the next desired action.
Customizing Text Messages
In GemPages Editor, you can customize the text messages displayed during the add-to-cart process. This allows you to personalize the messaging and create a unique shopping experience for your customers. The Sending Text, Thank-you text, and Success Message can be tailored to align with your brand voice and desired tone.
The Continue Shopping Link
The Continue Shopping link is an essential component of the Success Message. It provides customers with an option to continue browsing your products after adding an item to their cart. You can specify the link for this option in the Continue Link field. Leaving it blank will default to the All Products page.
Publishing the Changes
Once you have made all the necessary modifications and customization in the GemPages Editor, it is crucial to hit the Publish button. This ensures that the changes are applied to your live page, allowing your customers to experience the updated redirection and messaging.
