The Add to Cart or Cart Counter Nudge shows how many people have a certain product in their shopping cart at that moment. By showing how popular your products are, the Cart Counter Nudge turns add-to-carts into powerful Social Proof. This Nudge also creates a sense of urgency around the purchase decision, especially when items are low in stock.

How does the Add to Cart Nudge work?
The Nudge knows when an online shopper adds a product to their shopping cart. The Add to Cart Nudge uses this information to show how many people have a certain product in their basket at any given moment, creating real-time Social Proof.
Which product shows?
On all the other pages of your store, the Add to Cart Nudge automatically shows the product that is in most baskets at that moment.
Set a minimum and a maximum
This way, it always shows the most popular product within the minimum-maximum range you set. This means that if you set the maximum to 25, and your most popular product is in 26 baskets, your second most popular product will show instead. If your most popular product is in fewer baskets than the minimum you set, the Nudge does not show.
Show or hide the product name
You can choose to show or hide the product name in the Nudge. Showing the product name clarifies which product is being referred to. The product name also contains a link to the product page, which helps driving more visitors to the product page of that product.
Combine the Add to Cart with the Low Stock Nudge for FOMO
When you add the Cart Counter Nudge to your pages to create social proof, you highlight the popularity of the product while online shoppers are looking at it. When you combine the Cart Counter Nudge with the Low Stock Nudge, you also trigger a FOMO effect and create a sense of urgency around the purchase decision: the product they are looking at, is both low in stock and about to be purchased by others!
