Announcing SCA Compliance For UpStroke One Click Upsells

For the past 6 weeks, we’ve been diligently working on rolling out our compliance with SCA or Strong Customer Authentication.

This regulation will help prevent fraudulent transactions on your site and is quite an important update for European Union based merchants.

Email Opt In Ideas For eCommerce Store Owners Wanting To Grow Their 📧 List

If you own an online shop, chances are your opt-in box still says – “Subscribe now”.

The problem is no one’s willing to give their email away for something as bland as that.

Who’s got the time to build the email list? I hear ya! But the fact you’re reading this post- tells me that you’re willing to start from somewhere and you know that a message received by email is 5x more likely to be seen and acted upon than one received by Facebook or Twitter.

Kudos to you! You’re in the right place.

How To Set Up Multiple Upsells On One Page With UpStroke 2.0 & Elementor

What if I told you that you could increase your conversion rate by offering buyers a choice between 2 or 3 upsell offers?

Yes, that’s true.

People are wired to like choice, it makes them feel empowered. And they’re more likely to pick one of the options if multiple options are laid out on the table for them.

Amazon Style On-Page Recommendations V/S One Click Upsells, The Winner Is…?

The other day I went to buy earphones over at Amazon, and when I scrolled down on the product page, I saw a section named  ‘Frequently Bought Together’. I added it to my cart. As I kept scrolling down there were more and more recommendations like – ‘Customers who viewed this also viewed’, ‘Customers who bought this also bought’, ‘sponsored items’.

Yes, they have the power to convince buyers readily.

But, let’s be honest!  These sections also make the product pages look super cluttered and distracting – there are way too many places to click on.

And when you’re paying hard-earned cash to drive people to your product page, you don’t want to distract them with the exit routes.

It’s not designed to answer their questions and cinch the deal with trust.

2 Fastest Ways To Grow Profits Without Spending More On Ads

Tell me if you’ve heard this before:

“101 ways to get more traffic with Facebook ads”

“Build a 7-figure business by gathering new leads while you sleep.”

Have you heard these bloated claims before? I am sure you have unless you live in the caves.

Most gurus are teaching how to grow a business by acquiring new leads or getting more traffic. Their formula is simple, more new people into the funnel = more sales.

But no one’s talking about the faster way to grow. And that is by optimizing what you’ve got.

Here’s a piece of good news for you: You don’t have to spend more on ads or madly chase traffic, you simply have to make your current assets work harder for you. How?

Copy This Amazon Checkout Formula

Can you imagine what Amazon looked like back 1999?

*You’re amazing! Keep that support coming!*

🗣️Heads up: This is a short from-the-heart thank you note to let you know that your love & support matters!💖

When we launched our first product, UpStroke on June 18th, 2018, we totally knew WooCommerce users needed a sales funnel builder.

They had explored solutions outside of WooCommerce but nothing like an integration-rich, open source world of WooCommerce!

👉UpStroke was our first launch and had been in active development for 8 months prior to launch.

Before launch, we weren’t just coding like mad…

…But also speaking to real WooCommerce users to understand what they needed. Like real 1-on-1 phone calls.

This led us to build the ‘rule builder’.

👉We’re the first & only one-click upsell solution with the rule builder.

The rule builder lets you decide when you want to trigger your upsell funnel based on real-time actions of your users.

Immediately post-launch, we opened doors to custom integrations.

Our customers could walk in with integration requests and we’ve been custom coding compatibility. We thank all our patrons for these projects.

We went from offering compatibility with 4 payment gateways to 14 and will be close to 20 in the next 6 months. 🚀

Our #👆 goal is to get more & more people to enjoy the benefits of highly-optimized checkout pages & one-click upsells. In fact, we’re also the pioneers in offering compatibility with PayPal without reference transactions.

✅Upstroke has had 26 releases in the last 6 months✅Aero Checkout has rolled out 15 releases in the past 2 months✅And Order Bump has had 8 releases in 2 months

In the middle of all this, we also got an opportunity to serve the users of WooCurve.

WooCurve was the first one-click upsell solution in WooCommerce space. But due to some unfortunate circumstances, they had to wind up.

Chris Mason from WooCurve endorsed us 100% and offered their customers a chance to switch to WooFunnels.

What was most humbling for us was to see Chris endorse it as the “most feature-rich solution on the planet.” 🙌

We plan to work with Chris on various projects.

Add to that a score of testimonials from real WooCommerce users backed by results. Yes, real screenshots from their dashboards! This is our fuel. 🚀

Your success is our fuel.

And we only plan to move forward with a full thrust – consistently pushing updates that matter.

Now that you’re here, please take time to read our documentation, changelogs, blog posts and visit the academy to know how focused we are making our products more robust and useful to you.

Next year will be amazing. Wish you a very happy new year!
