There are several different ways to increase your AOV, including:

  1. Providing product recommendations
  2. Up- or cross-selling complementary products
  3. Setting order minimums for a discount
  4. Setting up a customer loyalty program
  5. Selling product bundles/packages

Read on to discover how you can implement these measures step by step in your Shopify store.
