Everyone knows the hassle of needing to regularly purchase the same things. Some items degrade and need replacement, like kitchen sponges and other home products. Other items simply get used up, like pet supplies or health supplements.

These are some of the psychological reasons CTA buttons can be very effective: they draw attention by presenting clear instructions and looking so clickable.
