LimeSpot has some built in placements for specific Shopify themes that we have pre-loaded to match the look and feel for your store's theme. However, we also have done some market research studies that focuses on the placements of the recommendation boxes.

The findings show that with the increased use of smartphones over the last decade, human attention span has fallen from 12 seconds in 2000, around the time the mobile revolution began, to 8 seconds, 1 second less than that of a goldfish. To adapt to these changes, many eCommerce stores today achieve/maintain high levels of conversions by keeping a customer-friendly layout and “eye-catching” placement of the most relevant product recommendations category.
