Checkout Process & Humor from Barkbox

Key Takeaways

  • Don't run the risk of boring your visitors. As shown by Barkbox, you can create a more enjoyable experience simply by adjusting your copy to be more interesting & personality-driven in areas like your guarantee, the name of your offer, default input values etc.
  • Showing the steps left or progress made on a multi-step form is almost always a good idea, unless there are an overwhelming amount of steps (and there shouldn't be). It eliminates the guessing of how many steps are left and helps reduce "long form" anxiety.
  • If the person checking out needs an account, do not make them go through the account creation process separately or prior to the checkout form. Ideally, everything should be integrated into the same form so there's no resistance added to the buying decision.
