Booster theme is a Shopify template that allows you to set a Shopify store with a few products.
Booster theme Overview
This theme allows you to set up sales funnels with better conversions.
For a product you wish to buy, booster theme help to integrate an add-on upsell for that product. For example, if you wish to purchase a PlayStation 4(PS4) console, the booster theme would offer corresponding gamepads as an upsell before redirecting you to check out for Spotify. This is similar to what you see on Amazon and it is a good way to boost your sales.
Optimization For Mobile
With mobile usage constantly rising, the first factor is that the booster theme is mobile optimized and shows both the image and add to chart buttons above the fold on either your laptop or smartphone. This is the most important factor in the booster review.
The booster theme comes with a fake plugin option that shows sales on your website which do not exist. This option is to present consumer confidence in your store and although fake, most people would not know. It is entirely up to you if you want to use this option or not.
Direct To Checkout
Skipping the cart page and taking visitors straight to the last page, a lot of marketers have testified by this tactic and say that it boosts sales. This is a very good feature as the fewer steps you take, the easier it is to buy.
This tool helps to increase orders due to scarcity. The countdown timer is fake although most people do not know this and it helps to attract buyers that might think it is legit. You can turn on or turn off this feature anytime.
Cross-Sell Pop Up
Anytime someone attempts to checkout on a product, you can include a pop-up that cross-sells them relevant products or an accompanying product.

For example, a PlayStation console and a PlayStation pad. Looking at Amazon, they also have a similar strategy with displaying related or in some cases accompanying products.
Another fake tactic that shows a fake number of people that have viewed a particular product, making it seem more popular than it is. Tho it might work for some products but I would not recommend this feature because not everyone likes competing.
This feature is nice because it aides transactions better. Supposing you are a US-based citizen and you are selling your products in dollars, while your customer is in Japan. Booster theme would allow your customer to see the price in their currency(Japanese yen) which is less confusing and less stressful. I strongly recommend this feature.
Free Plus Shipping
This feature makes you put up a free offer for your customers and you can redirect them to an add-on page. It has full customization and less stressful to set up.
This feature allows you to Integrate the Shopify product review all with booster theme bearing in mind that this is a third party app so if there are issues, support would be a problem.
This feature is widely used if you are trying to build up your email list. An email pop up is displayed to collect email addresses in return for a discount offer. You can customize it; that is to pop up probably when someone is about to leave the website or when someone just logged in after some seconds to the website. You can set any discount you want depending on the product you are selling.
Installing Booster Theme
Installing version two(2) of the booster theme is very simple and easy. In most cases, it takes less than five (5) minutes to install and you can create your stock within another forty(40) minutes of installation. In case you are having a hard time installing the booster theme, support is done through the zen desk. All other related issues are also done through the zen desk.
Booster Theme Issues
Having read all about the advantages of booster theme, well it also has it’s own downside issues. The first issue is about the update, you have to download and install the theme again over the top due to Shopify’s interface when you want to update a theme.
Another issue with the booster theme is the cost of these features. I mean why pay $179 for one or two plugins when most of these features can be added for free through the Shopify app store.
Lastly, because the theme is popular and you don’t want it looking like your competitor’s, you would want to customize it as much as possible. Eventually, customers would start to notice that these stores are all fake. That is fake visitors, fake scarcity tactics, and fake countdown timer.
When I tried the theme, I did see an increase in conversion rate. It boosted my sales by 15%, you can try it also and you might have a higher conversation rate than I did.
