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 kinds of products never seem to run out at convenient times, usually requiring a separate trip to the store just for "that one thing." Worse yet is when a particular item is forgotten until the very last minute!

Thankfully, we are in the age of eCommerce, and shoppers can save an emergency shopping trip and order their needed products online. But what stops them from just forgetting and ending up in the same situation? The simple fact is that the more time that passes between necessary repeat purchases, the more likely a customer is to forget to buy. That's where 3dcart's new Time-to-Reorder app steps in.

If you sell items that your customers will need to reorder on a regular basis, this app will ease their lives considerably. You can take the pain out of reordering by providing your customers with automatic reminders that will be sent to them when it is time to reorder. Here's how it works:

When you set up the Time-to-Reorder app in your store, you can choose which products will have the service available, and then configure the reminder frequency options offered to the customer. You have full control over the number of options and their time frames, as well as the names you assign to each option.

When a customer views the product, they will see a dropdown menu from which they can select the reminder option they prefer, such as "30 days," "Quarterly," or other options you have created. When their specified time frame is up, the customer will receive an email reminding them to reorder from you.


The Time-to-Reorder app is another tool you can use to provide your customers with a flawless shopping experience. You can check it out in the 3dcart App Store, and browse our other apps while you're there, for more ways to arm yourself for eCommerce success.
