5 tips to boost your average basket

1 - Cross-selling

How can you get your customers to spend more? In order to boost the average basket, you can choose a cross-selling approach. This is one of the most powerful techniques: you get your customer to buy more items than expected.

How do you do this? It’s very simple, simply suggest complementary items - for example a laptop bag, a mat and a mouse, to a customer who has just bought a computer.


2 - Bundling

This marketing strategy offers flat-rate discounts to customers who buy several items. Bundling builds customer loyalty, and your customers save money by reducing the unit cost of each item. On your side, the basket growth leads to a net increase of your turnover. How do you set up this bundling? For example, if your customer buys 2 T-shirts, you offer the 3rd.


3 - Countdown sales

Countdown sales

How can you create an “emergency feeling” to get your customers to buy more? By launching sales for a set period of time! Your customers will then have to make up their minds quickly, so as not to miss out on a good deal.

For example, around Christmas time, let your customers know how many hours they have left to place an order. If they are quick, they get a discounted price and receive their gifts on time.

4 - Free delivery on orders over a certain amount

Many customers refuse to pay for delivery. Use this opportunity to set a minimum order amount to qualify for free delivery. This trick will force them to buy more! Most of your customers would rather buy one more item than pay for delivery. Good to know: it will be even easier for your customers to get free delivery if you offer them payment in installments. The many advantages of this payment method are detailed in the following section.
