According to a PWC study, 73% of customers consider the experience an important factor in their purchasing decisions. Additionally, nearly 80% of American consumers say speed, convenience, knowledgeable help, and friendly service are the top elements of a positive customer experience.

To cater to these priorities and quickly process repeat purchases from loyal shoppers, e-commerce companies need quick order capabilities. This empowers merchants to reorder products rapidly in just a couple of clicks as opposed to a lengthy manual workflow, delivering the speed and convenience buyers have come to expect.

Streamlining the Quick Order Process

Ensuring an intuitive, user-friendly process is essential when implementing a quick order feature. This key element can avoid customer confusion when reordering and help reduce cart abandonment.

  • Optimize for mobile: Many customers will use your quick order system on their phones. Making sure it functions smoothly on mobile prevents losing mobile reorders.
  • Use minimalist design: A visually simple quick order page lets customers make fast choices. Avoid clutter and complexity.
  • Regularly update: Keep product availability and pricing current so customers have accurate info for reordering.

Maximizing Customer Convenience With Quick Orders

Your customers are busy, and they want to get things done quickly. Making your Shopify quick order process fast and convenient will improve the shopper experience and encourage repeat purchases.

Additionally, a back-in-stock notification form can keep customers informed. With an optimized quick order system, customers will appreciate the simplicity of reordering from you. This can potentially lead to increased customer loyalty and conversions.
