Bounce Exchange, a leading app on the exit-intent market, is an extremely expensive choice, prices starting at $3.995 (no joke!), a price tag which might be a little out of the budget of a business that’s just starting out, therefore I have compiled a list of the best 9 Bounce Exchange alternatives:

In the following post I have compiled a top with the best plugins that will help you with this, not general email marketing tools but highly focused on ecommerce, offering numerous 3rd party service integrations and customizations.

Besides building a mailing list, the positive effects of which are clear (I hope), reducing the bounce rate is another result of using these exit intent plugins: instead of losing visitors, you basically convert them to potential future customers.

Most of the plugins are only usable on WordPress (WooCommerce), but the first one in the list works on Shopify as well. Enjoy!

OptinMonster (works with any type of website, including WordPress & Shopify)

OptinMonster ecommerce plugin

Pricing: $69-$399

OptinMonster is a premium lead generation app that allows you to quickly and easily built opt-in forms, perform A/B testing, and track your opt-in analytics.

The plugin is focused heavily on pop-up opt-in forms, with lots of available customization options for you to create professional-looking and high-converting lightbox forms.

Because the app tracks mouse movements to determine “exit-intent,” pop-ups will only appear when your visitor is about to leave your site, so you don’t have to worry about interrupting visitors when they’re still browsing the page.

Using the app, you can build not only pop-up forms but opt-in forms in sidebars, after posts, footers, etc.

It makes it easy to create a professional-looking opt-in form in just a few minutes, plus it allows you to optimize your conversion rates with built-in analytics and easy A/B split testing.

OptinMonster key features:

  • Create professional opt-in forms within 60 seconds

Picreel (WordPress & Shopify)

PicReel ecommerce plugin

Pricing: $14-$399

Picreel is an exit intent technology plugin that gives you control over the movement of traffic out of your website. This technology is useful in reducing site bounce rates and converting the exiting visitors into targeted leads.

Even if your offers are superior and the overall experience on your ecommerce site is excellent, it is common for the majority of visitors try to exit after a short stay. We understand this behavior very well after working with many brands in maximizing on their online traffic for over ten years.

This exit intent technology application monitors mouse movement and velocity of website visitors. Using data collected, it detects when they are about to leave the site, and this is countered with timed popups designed to prevent the exit.

The plugin is fairly easy to use and the signup is a breeze. The free 30 days trial made it my favorite Bounce Exchange alternative.

Picreel exists as a Shopify app as well.

Picreel key features:

  • Exit intent technology
  • Free trial
  • Create your own branded offer within 30 seconds
  • Identify profitable segments for personalization

Pricing: $38 – $909

Omniconvert is a full-stack CRO tool that also offers the possibility to create exit intent banners.

What sets Omniconvert apart from most of the other tools is the ability to add dynamic texts into your banners, thus making the content more relevant to the end user.  Examples of dynamic elements that can be added on your banners include: user location, weather condition & temperature at the user location, elements from your website (product names, page name, etc).

Omniconvert allows for a wide variety of banners to be triggered on-exit intent: header & footer ribbons, sidebar banners, interstitials & classic popup banners. Besides triggering the overlayers on-exit intent you can also trigger them on-load, on-scroll or on click.

The overlayers can be shown to all the visitors or just part of them. You can choose to segment the who sees your banner with the help of over 40 different segmentation criteria including location, technology, traffic source, on-site behaviour etc.

Another cool feature is the ability to run two different overlayers in the same time for the same audience. This way you can see which of them performs better in terms of conversion rate.

Besides banner creation you can also use Omniconvert for A/B testing & on-site surveys, both of which have been proven to have a positive impact on conversion rates.
