Project: How IObit Increased Online Revenue by 6% through Cart Optimization
The Context & Objectives
IObit is looking to constantly improve both acquisition and retention at global level and this cart optimization project was part of the acquisition improvement initiative. The goal was to increase cart conversion rates on a global level by at least 5%.

30% Increase in Revenue from Optimized Customer Buying Experience
IObit was looking to update and optimize its buying experience and purchase flow to maximize cart conversions and drive incremental revenue. IObit’s buying experience and purchase flow had not kept pace with the company’s rapidly expanding international customer base and web traffic. Flat cart conversion rates due in part to the old design and flow were limiting the potential for increases in incremental revenue.
IObit didn’t have the internal tools or expertise for an effective A/B testing and optimization program required to remedy the design and structural flows that were depressing cart conversions and revenues.
Avangate’s solution for IObit consisted of a comprehensive six-month cart conversion rate optimization program. Over the course of the six months, Avangate’s team deployed advanced marketing tools and strategies to makeover IObit’s aging online ordering system. Actions included improvements to the order flow, a complete redesign of the shopping cart and order flow layout and graphics, increasing shopper trust and conversions. Avangate also tested for best performing marketing tools and their optimal placement within the ordering flow.
- 12% increase in shopping cart conversion rate, from 11.8% to 23.73%
- 30.47% increase in revenue, due completely to the optimization program
- Increased shopper trust in the purchase process
Hugo Dong, CEO, IObit: “We really like the way in which we receive constant feedback and proactive advice. We have Avangate to thank for helping us improve online sales results. This is yet another proof that we have to constantly test and optimize what we do in order to support our customers better and adapt to their requirements and changes in buying behavior.”
