Show Checkouts Alerts With OptimizeUrgency

The OptimizeUrgency integration with the OptimizeCheckouts plugin will help you show alerts on your site for the sales you make, which will give a sense of urgency to potential buyers of your products. When they see that others have already made purchases, they may buy due to “FOMO” (Fear of Missing Out).

Step 1 – On the OptimizeDashboard page, click Urgency in the sidebar.

Step 2 – On the Urgency page, click the “+” button or “Create New Urgency Alert” button to create an alert.

Step 3 – Once clicked, a window will pop-up. Go and select OptimizeCheckouts.

Step 4 – Scroll down and give it a name. Click “Create & Continue” when done.

Step 5 – When done, click on “Edit Urgency Alert” to start editing your newly created alert.

Step 6 – On the Urgent Alert setting of your new alert box, click on “Configure Display Settings” button.

Time to first alert – Set the time before the first alert is displayed
