3 Ways to Boost Average Order Value of Your e-Commerce Store

Generating more revenue for your e-Commerce store is undoubtedly one of the most important goals of any business owner. To grow revenue from your online store, you may either increase the number of purchases made or increase the dollar value of each purchase. Here, we focus on how to increase your Average Order Value (AOV). 

There are 3 ways to increase the average order value of your e-commerce store.

1. Show Related Products

MiiDuu makes it easy to show your customers which products are related.
Sometimes, customers are focused on buying one of your products that they neglect to browse around to find more. This leads to smaller carts, and as a result, smaller average order values.

To help solve this problem, adding related products to your product page. By profiling popular products, you can not only minimize friction before checkout, but also increase average order values.

2.Cross Selling

Much like the previous strategy, this tip involves adding product suggestions to your checkout page. In this case, instead of simply suggesting other popular items from your store, try hand-picking products that pair well with the item in the user’s cart.

3.Set Order Minimums for Coupon/Free Shipping

Increasing your average order value can also be accomplished by providing an incentive when customers spend a minimum amount on your store. Consider setting a minimum order amount for free shipping - it’s really easy to do within Miiduu and very effective at raising average order values.

Other examples of minimum order incentives are offering a coupon when your customer meets the purchase amount threshold. For example, giving a 20% discount on orders over $75 .

Miiduu Tips: How to Pick the Perfect Theme for Your Miiduu Store

Before You Pick a Theme

The theme selection process can be overwhelming for some. If it’s your first time ever building an online store, it can be difficult to determine what's best for your business.

With your Miiduu store, you start with a default theme and have the option to customize it, play around with it, or even just start fresh with a new theme.

To be clear, there's absolutely nothing wrong with using the default Miiduu theme if it's your first time using Miiduu. It works incredibly well, and is a good way to get an understanding of different theme features and styling options. I'd recommend playing around with it as a testing playground before switching to any other themes.

With that in mind, here are some questions you’ll want to ask yourself before looking at themes:

  • What are some desired features I want for my store?
  • What are my competitors doing that I like, and how can I emulate it?
  • How do I want my products to be displayed?
  • How many products will I be displaying on my store?

The exercise of actually trying to answer these questions will help you move forward.

Note: Themes with Pro label are professionally designed and mobile responsive. They give your customers better experience in shopping online. We carefully evaluate all themes submitted by theme designers for quality and functionality before they are listed in the Theme Store.

Most Importantly, Be Willing to Test and Experiment

So with all of that being said, it's clear that there are quite a few options when it comes to picking a theme for your Miiduu store. So, how do you pick the perfect one?

Take your time to test and experiment.

Really, there's no better way to find out what's perfect for your business than to use the criteria, questions, and sorting features above to begin experimenting with different themes.

Customize Registration Fields with New Miiduu App

Do you want to customize the registration fields your customers complete? You might want to ask how customers heard about you or gather other information which is not part of the standard Miiduu registration form. It’s easy to do with the “Custom Registration Fields” app, available in the Miiduu app store.

Simply grab the app and start customizing your registration form. You can add a field name and choose from text entry (customer enters a text response of their choosing) or dropdown. For the dropdown option, “add options” to create the dropdown choices you wish to display. After customizing, these fields will be part of your registration form and you will be able to see customers’ answers to these questions when you view their customer information.

Miiduu makes it easy to create and manage your online store, customized for your needs! If you have any questions, contact support.miiduu.com.

How to Find the Right Product for Your Online Store

The first step to setting up an online store is determining what product(s) you’re going to sell. There are various approaches to this decision. Here are some great strategies to find a product/product line:

1. Start with what you know

Is there a product you love? Could you somehow market and distribute it online? Is there a wider audience for it?
Are there related products or niche versions you could sell?
What are your passions and interests? What do you buy a lot of or find yourself browsing for online?

2. Look local

Check out storefronts in your local area. Are there unique products you could distribute to a wider audience?
Are there trends you notice when out shopping or products that attract you?
Taking location-specific products online can be a great idea. Maybe there are unique local products that aren’t available in other areas. People who have moved away from the area might be love being able to “get a taste of home”.

Creating and Managing a Multilingual Web Store Has Never Been Easier

Miiduu now makes it easier than ever to run your web store in multiple languages. We’ve worked hard to develop  the most user-friendly platform for creating, editing and managing your store in multiple languages.

Whether reaching out to an international audience or selling within a bilingual region, having an e-commerce site in multiple languages equips store owners to sell more.

Did you know?
*Last year, more than a billion buyers worldwide were responsible for $1.2 trillion in sales.
*An English-only site taps in to just 1/3 of that buying power and non- native English speakers are the  fastest growing segment online. 
*A large majority of consumers say they only browse websites in their native language and will only buy a  product in their native language.

In the past, small businesses that couldn’t afford custom programming were left with using ineffective plug-ins or creating multiple sites in different languages. This meant duplicating efforts when updating pricing inventory, coupons and specials. The Miiduu interface allows users to manage all the different aspects of their storefront directly in different languages, saving time and money. 

With Miiduu’s new multilingual feature, creating and managing a store in multiple languages is effortless. Everything is built in to the interface and users do not need any technical knowledge to create their multilingual store.

The Miiduu multilingual store also offers smart features such as auto-detecting a visitor’s language (based on their browser settings) and remembering their language choice (if they visit your store and choose a language, when they return they will automatically see the store in the chosen language).
