3 Possibilities for Upsells: Order Bumps, Bundles, Sales Funnel

You can use various strategies to make further offers to your customers directly on the payment page (upsell).

The payment page is about a core product, for example your online course, and you want to offer additional content for purchase.

But what do you do if your course is part of a series? How can you offer components to your customers? What if the customers overlook the upsell?

Use one of these possibilities!

Order Bumps: In addition to your core product, you offer your customers other components to choose from. Here, for example, you can offer additional materials.

  • In-depth content to go with the core product.
  • Additional services.
  • Special reduced offers in combination with the core product.

>> Order bumps are optional. Customers put together their own individual product or service packages.

Bundles: Here you offer an alternative to your core product. This alternative can include your core product, but does not have to.

  • Your online course is part of a series, so sell a complete package.
  • Your course is part of a membership? Offer the membership!
  • Offer your core product together with a voucher.
  • Certain components go together? Tie up a package!

>> With bundles you choose the contents of the product package for your customers.

Sales Funnel: This is the opportunity to offer customers additional offers after they have made a purchase. After the order of the core product, web pages are shown where you offer further products.

  • Offer additional products or services after the purchase.
  • Customers can buy these with 1 click.
  • Ideal for very special mega deals that no one else can get.
  • Can be combined with order bumps/bundles on the payment page.

>> Customers choose additional products after purchase. You decide the order in which the offers are shown. Set that all already purchased products are skipped. This allows the combination with Order Bumps & Bundles.
