With Carts Guru you can customize widgets to perfectly fit your website design, then use them to collect SMS, email and Facebook Messenger opt-ins from your website visitors.
Carts Guru offers five main widget types that you can choose from:
1. “Add to Cart” Pop-up
This widget appears when the non-identified visitor adds an item to their cart.
As soon as an item is placed in a cart, the widget asks your visitor to 'opt-in' to your marketing messages, perhaps for the chance to receive a special discount on their order

2. Exit Pop-up
The exit pop-up is one of the most popular widgets. It appears when a visitor is about to leave your website, e.g when they hover their mouse over the exit button.
The widget will offer your visitor a special discount in exchange for an opt-in. If the customer opts-in and wins a discount they will likely reconsider leaving and continue browsing your website.

The most fun of all the widgets! The wheel allows visitors who opt-in to participate in a lottery and potentially win a big discount.
When someone browses through your website, a small wheel appears on either side of the page and becomes bigger as the visitor approaches it.
The wheel works great in the dropshipping industry or with low-value products, like clothing or jewelry. For high-value products, like furniture or auto, we recommend using another widget.

This widget is special due to its discretion. People love it as it can be open or closed by default upon a visitor entering the website.
It is displayed either in the bottom left or bottom right corners of your page and asks visitors for their opt-in, often in exchange for a special discount.

5. “Add to cart” Embedded
The add to cart embedded is included in each product page and placed below the “add to cart” button. This means that it doesn't 'pop-up' and interrupt the buyers' journey.
It gives customers the chance to opt-in if they want to receive messaging, or possibly win a discount.
