The three most common mistakes when setting up a progress bar in your Shopify store

Now that you are convinced that it’s a good idea to install a progress bar to boost your store sales, let me introduce you to the three most common mistakes to avoid when setting up a progress bar.

This bar is seen as a kind of game by the client, that’s why it’s appealing to them. Plus, it’s a good way to make your business more transparent, as it shows the shipping costs of the order.

Anyway, not everything that glitters is gold. In this article, I’ll show you some details you need to be extremely careful with so your clients can enjoy the progress bar experience to the fullest.

  1. The free-shipping goal is not always available

If you include a goal in your progress bar offering free shipping when your client spends more than 50 euros, watch out! Because this offer is not available for every country. I’m sure you don’t want to ship your items for free to the other side of the world when this client has only spent 50 euros.

That's why if you, as the store owner, are based in the US, your client will only see a free product, the second goal, after having spent more than 100 euros. You may want to know that not all the progress bar apps have this feature, but lucky for you, Yaco Progress Bar has it.

  1. No-code setup for your progress bar

It’s great to have a progress bar in your store but, have you considered learning how to code to set it up as you want? Usually, to set up a progress bar in your store you need to have basic coding skills to use some of the progress bar apps. That's not the case with the Yaco Progress Bar. Our app has an online system that allows you to set it up without having to worry about the coding part.

  1. Messages boosting the sense of achievement

Lastly, don't forget to include a "congratulations" message in your progress bar. It's important for the client to see this message as it gives them a sense of achievement when it notifies them when they’ve reached the milestone. As it couldn’t be otherwise, you’ll be able to add this feature to your progress bar with the Yaco Progress Bar app as well.

As we’ve seen briefly, setting up a progress bar is a child’s game, you just need to take into account some little details if you want it to give you all its power. In case you are not convinced yet about the benefits of having a progress bar in your store, I suggest you take a look at our article where we talk about the advantages of having a progress bar in your store.
