2. 2. What are the factors affecting the customers’ decision of removing items from their cart?

2.2.1. High shipping cost:

Customers will be willing to abandon the shopping cart containing your product if your shop does not support free shipping, especially a huge promotion from the platform since finding similar but available free shipping shops is extremely easy.

Let’s join PowerSell – Growth solution to support multi-channel retailers to find out the 3 most effective “Free shipping” solutions in 2020!

– Share shipping fee with the buyer:

One way to reduce shipping costs for sellers the most effective is to share this shipping cost with your shoppers. That means customers will bear 50-70% of shipping costs, the rest you accept to deduct from your profits. While this will reduce your profits, it will help you sell order to a new customer, so they have a chance to experience your product, which is easy to return to as a loyal customer.

– Transfer shipping fee into the product price:

Another way to solve shipping problems that most sellers often apply is to increase the price of the product. To ensure profit but still attract customers with the promotion “Free shipping”, many sellers have increased the price of the product compared to the original price.

In this way, the customer will accidentally pay the shipping fee but they are not aware, you still retain your customer. 

– Increase the value of orders

One way that does not directly help you reduce shipping costs but will help you reduce the shipping costs for an order is to increase the order value. In case the shipping costs will remain the same, if the order value is increased, the shipping fee will become more worthy.

This is also one way you can apply for promotions, urging customers to buy more by increasing valuable products to boost sales and compensate for programs like a free ship, etc.

2.2.2. Too expensive:

46% of cancelled carts happen in the final stages, namely during checkout. Online shoppers are very good at comparing prices to other shops, and will always look for a cheaper one.

Unlike shopping in a traditional shop, shoppers can easily move from one online shop to another.

For this reason, especially for small and medium-sized retailers, it is important to maintain competitive prices. 

Returning to so many pricing strategies, what is the best solution for your product? 

  • Know who your target customers are?
  • What needs are your products meeting?

(According to Maslow’s demand pyramid the customer will have 5 needs, 3 of these 5 needs can be expressed through their physical needs and corresponding shopping behaviour).

If your products are high-end items or towards user-health such as functional foods, organic foods, … pricing your products with number 9 will accidentally reduce the value of your products in the eyes of customers, instead,  using the rounding numbers (numbers 5, 0) will contribute to creating more confidence for customers when deciding to spend large sums of money on high-value items you’re selling.

Or if you sell fast-moving consumer goods or everyday consumer goods, this time with a price of XX9$ will certainly work, because, for items with a short consumer life cycle, customers (especially rural customers) will still prefer low-cost, affordable products.

2.2.3. No direct customer support:

Customers can’t reach out to you or your staff in real-time, which could not help them find the process more convenient and increase their confidence in their purchasing decisions.

The fashion retail industry has exploited this growing potential through direct support services. But you will not be able to respond to all of Lazada’s large-scale birthday campaign messages in a timely and quick manner without support from PowerChat – a feature of PowerSell will be Released on March 10, 2020. 

3. What to prepare for decent?

3.1. Consider the number of goods to import

Having passed the first firewall, you have been successfully approved by Lazada for this campaign. Now is the time to review your products in one go, getting ready to re-import the products out of stock.

To save time, it may be beneficial to prepare your shop’s packaging and logo before you enter this large shipment.

How many products should be restocked?

Based on the recent business analysis chart on PowerSell’s Dashboard, you can make your own decisions, together with other sellers in our community, we highly recommend to enter 3 or 5 times the usual quantity of goods needed to meet the Lazada birthday sales increase.

After restocking, warehousing, it is important now that you need to redo the price to apply promotional prices and update the product on the platform.

3.2. Adjust the promotional price accordingly
