Influencing User’s Decision-making process in E-commerce Push Notifications

From the above discussion it is conspicuous that a plethora of factors can impact purchase decisions.Thus, let’s simplify and broadly categorize the factors broadly into two categories :

i.) Product Information

      • Price ( on sale, price drop)
      • Recency
      • Stocks
      • Bestseller

ii.) Social Information

      • Number of users who have bought the product
      • Number of users interested in the product
      • Ratings

The first category help users understand the product and make their decision faster. Suppose a user is interested in a product. Now, a price drop provides an urgency to complete the purchase, while recency can inform the user of the latest trends.

In addition, stocks can help in deciding whether to make a purchase now, and bestseller reassures the user of the product preference.

The second category is more psychological as it reassures the user of their choice and depends on other users purchase patterns. Additionally , it provides social proof and credibility to the products by showing the other users’ interest in the product.

Hence. the chance of  making an error by choosing to purchase the product becomes lesser. It act as social conformation of the user’s choice of product. 

Moreover, it can also provide insight on the product as the information is based on actual purchase and product usage.
