Full Tutorial & Review
  • To start using the Sales Pop & Social Proof App, first install the app. On logging into the app, what you'll notice is that you would first see an app review; you can skip that and move on to the dashboard. The progress bar should put you at 50% once that app is installed. 

  •  On the right from the progress bar, there's an FAQ, and under it, Sales pop invites you to join E-Commerce Elites Facebook Group. 

  • The next section is reserved for analytics, basic insight into your campaign, but you don't need to dig deep into the numbers with this kind of app. 

  • Also, if you scroll to the bottom of the page, you can see your last pop-up events. 

  • To customize your sales notification, go back to the dashboard, and choose settings from the left menu. You'll notice a message that says, "As you modify your settings, the preview will automatically update" on the settings page. 


In this page, you would see the top navigation with:

  • Settings

  • General

  • Placement

  • Timing

  • Styles

  • Templates

  • Advanced

  • Click on general. Here, you can change general notification settings and also languages. 10 languages are available, and we will stick to English. Also, you can play with elements like:

  • Cycle After Completion

  • Show Pops Sequentially

  • Show on Cart Page

    • Show on Product Page

    • Show on Mobile

    • Anonymous First Names ("Robert in" → "Someone in")


You can choose to turn off the option for showing on the cart page since you don't want to distract customers from their purchase, and you can leave the rest on. 

  • To adjust placement, click on it, and you can choose where you want your notification to be shown. There are 4 options available. Click on save changes and proceed to timing. 

  • On the timing page, you can see the time before the first pop shows. Now to not be aggressive, you can advisable start with 10 seconds and put a ten-second difference as the time between pop-ups. Click on save changes and proceed to the next step. 

  • In the style tab, you can change text and background colors and also border-radius. Save changes, and you can return to the templates tab. 

  • To unlock templates, you would need to like the CartKit Facebook page. This often unlocks 10 new templates; next, choose the gradient #3 rounded and click on save changes. 

  • You can now go on to the advanced tab, and here you can add custom CSS in case you need it. Also, this function is only available for paid users. 

  • To check metrics, click on metrics, and a new window appears. Here, you can see some basic metrics, visitors, clicks, and closes.

While we loved the possibility to customize the notification to fully fit your theme on the Sales Pop & Social Proof App Tutorial, we must say that we were really annoyed by all the ads in the app.
