For example, it can take the format of the contact form, like quizzes, pop-ups, feedback templates and so on. One of the most popular formats of custom form is a pop-up which is activated by a button. When this button is pushed, a custom form is activated for use by the customer.

Buyers and customers are quite familiar with this form of communication with the vendor. By employing the aid of pop-ups, website owners are able to obtain information on the needs of visitors and their shopping experience.
