How To Add Social Proof and FOMO Notifications To Your Prestashop Website

Adding Social Proof and FOMO notifications to your Prestashop website helps to build trust and create a sense of urgency. That means you get more sales and sign-ups from the same amount of traffic.

Social Proof and FOMO Notifications for Prestashop

Social Proof Notifications show your visitors that activity is taking place on your Prestashop website, building trust and encouraging them to make a purchase. FOMO notifications show your visitors when a product is low in stock, so your visitors don’t procrastinate. Nudgify gives you both kinds of notifications.

The easiest way to add Social Proof and FOMO notifications to your Prestashop website is to install Nudgify. The free trial lasts 7 days, and doesn’t require a credit card.

Installing Nudgify On Your Prestashop Website

Installing Nudgify with Prestashop is really easy and only takes a couple of minutes. Just sign up for Nudgify and the setup guide will take you to “Install my Pixel”.

This Pixel is nothing more than a small line of code that you need to copy and paste into the code of your website.

In Prestashop, there are two ways to install the Pixel: with a Module or with a Template. If you use a Module, you don’t need to open up the source code of your website.

You can read how to do either in the following steps.

Step 1: Copy the Pixel from the “Other sites” tab

  • On the Nudgify Pixel page, Select the “Other Sites” tab and copy the Pixel from the text-box.

Step 2: Paste the Pixel into the Head Tag

Choose one of the two ways to install the Pixel: using a Module or using a Template.

Using a Module (“The Module Method”)

  • Login to your Prestashop account and go to “Modules”.
  • Install a Module that allows you to insert custom JavaScript on your website, such as:

Editing a Template (“The Template Method”)

  • Log in to Prestashop.
  • Select “Advanced Parameters” in the column on the left.
  • Click on “Performance”.
  • In the “Cache” section, select “No” and “Force compilation”.
  • Open the FTP (File Transfer Protocol) of your Prestashop website.
  • Open the file “Themes”.
  • Choose the default file (sometimes named “Classic”).
  • Select the file “Templates”.
  • Then open the file called “_partials” (the name can vary). It should be displayed in the first position of the list opened.
  • Open the file “header.tpl”.
  • Paste the Convertize Pixel right before the closing tag </head>.
  • Add {literal} and {/literal} at the starting and closing of the Pixel, for example:

Step 3: Check the Pixel is installed

  • Go back to the Nudgify Pixel page and click “Check” to see whether the Pixel was installed correctly.

  • Do you see the green “Pixel installed” message? Congratulations, your Nudgify Pixel is applied to all the pages of your website and you will be able to see the Nudges you create on the targeted pages.
  • Do you not see the green “Pixel installed” message? Your Pixel is not installed. Click the blue chat bubble in the app where we can assist you 1-on-1.

Using Social Proof and FOMO Notifications on Your Prestashop Website

Once you have installed Nudgify, you can choose which kinds of notifications to add to each page on your Prestashop website. Nudges are organised into Streams, which define the sequence they will appear in and the pages they are added to.

Some of the settings for your Nudges are defined when you add a new Nudge to your stream. For example, you can change some of the text and integrate your Nudges with another app to collect and display activity.

You can adjust the way all of your Nudges look and behave by changing your Nudge Settings.
