The pandemic has proven that Shopify merchants need to be innovative and rethink how they can improve their customers’ online journey in order to boost sales. You must create scroll-stopping, powerful visual content to capture customer attention and lead them to checkout.
Nothing gets more visually appealing than 3D and Augmented Reality (AR) models, and with our recently launched Shopify app, any Shopify merchant can create an immersive visual customer experience. Here’s some benefits you can expect:
- Bridging the gap between online and in-store experiences: Brick-and-mortar used to reign supreme for convenience. Customers can easily browse, hold, touch, and inspect any product. With 3D and AR, customers enjoy an online sensory-focused shopping experience that is just as impactful as in-person.
- Increased confidence: Customers have a hard time feeling 100% secure in the purchase they’re considering. Gartner research notes that B2B buyers in particular don’t feel empowered to make good online purchasing decisions due to a large amount of “conflicting information.” 3D and AR provide clear visuals and get buyers on track to find the right product and make a confident purchase.
- Decreased returns: Standard 2D images simply don’t do the trick. That light brown chair on your computer screen may likely appear much darker once it reaches your doorstep – it's impossible to feel 100% sure. 3D and AR eliminate any uncertainty and allow them to feel secure in that what they’re seeing on their screen is exactly what they’ll receive, resulting in a 40% decrease in returns from 3D visualization and 25% decrease with AR.
Let’s dive deep into how our Shopify app and add-ons filled with 3D and AR content can supercharge the performance of your Shopify site.
