What is a Recently Viewed Widget?

The Recently Viewed widget is a useful tool for both customers and store owners. This widget enables customers to easily see their product search history and aids in closing the sales transaction. It shows up to 3 products that customers have visited in your store.

How Does the Recently Viewed WIidget Work?

The Recently Viewed widget is automatically added to your store's website. It appears on the side or bottom of the page, depending on your website's layout. When a customer visits a product page, the widget will display the product's image, name, and price. If the customer clicks on the product, it will be added to their recently viewed list.

Benefits for Customers

The Recently Viewed widget makes it easy for customers to keep track of products they are interested in. Instead of having to remember the name or search for the product again, they can simply click on the widget and find the product they were previously looking at. This saves time and makes the shopping experience more convenient for customers.

Benefits for Store Owners

The Recently Viewed widget is also beneficial for store owners. It provides valuable insights into customer behavior and interests. By seeing which products are being viewed the most, store owners can make informed decisions about their inventory and marketing strategies. Additionally, the widget can help increase sales by reminding customers of products they were interested in but may have forgotten about.
