What’s new around Recart’s Desktop Popups?

The new Desktop Popup editor is now live! Create high converting, fully customized Desktop Popups with additional images.

Being familiar with the latest eCommerce trends and the rise of mobile shopping naturally Recart’s primary focus is Mobile Marketing, though we have not forgotten about desktop visitors. We believe your brand should not do either!

While Mobile Popups are by far the best converting opt-in tools, desktop visitors should also have the chance to subscribe to your text list. Hence we have introduced the new Desktop Popup editor that makes it absolutely effortless to combine good-looking images or GIFs with your offer and to build high converting, fully customized Popups for Desktop.

New image positions

Positioning the content on your Popup is crucial. From now on, instead of uploading a background image, you can easily add additional images without interfering with the offer.

Choose from three different positions according to your liking on the right side of the editor.👇

See the examples below how the Popup will look like with the different image positions:

  • Image on the left side

Image on the left side

  • Image on the right side

Image on the right side

  • Image on the top

    Note that in this position, your logo will be hidden.

GIFs on your Popup

Similar to adding images to the sides or on the top of the Popup, you can now add GIFs to juice up the customer experience with some animation.

Transparent png images with a background color

If you would like to have a unified background color you can use png images with transparent background. Uploading a png image to the sides or on the top will let you choose a background color applied on the whole Popup. With this method, the Popup will not be divided into two sections.
