Abandoned Carts: The Facts

If the mere mention of “abandoned carts” makes you shudder, you’re not alone. This is an industry-wide challenge that even the most powerful brands are trying to solve.

"I run multiple different cart saver campaigns based on order value and cart value...
and right away we saw a pretty nice reduction in our cart abandonment rate."
– Jeremy Mallison, Director of Digital Strategy at Zutano

What Are The First Steps to Reducing Cart Abandonment?

Based on our work with thousands of online merchants, we’ve found the following five tactics to be the most effective at reducing abandonment:

  • Invest in continuous list growth to fuel your recovery emails. Don’t limit your abandonment emails to the people who reach the checkout step of the buying process. Instead, use advanced list growth tactics to grow your pool of people who can receive automated emails.

  • Use targeted exit pop ups to save carts before they abandon. Pop ups that are triggered upon exit intent give you a final chance to  engage shoppers before they abandon your site. You can get even more targeted by delivering a special offer based on the amount in a shoppers’ cart as well as the page they are on, while capturing their email for follow ups.

  • Understand the difference between abandoned cart and abandoned checkout. While lots of people use the terms cart abandonment and checkout abandonment interchangeably, they are actually two very different things. Checkout abandonment (and checkout abandonment emails) are focused only on people who have reached the checkout stage of a purchase, and ignoring all of those people who added an item to cart and left your site without getting to checkout.

  • Drive shoppers back to your site with cart abandonment emails. Send cart abandonment emails to shoppers who leave your store without finishing their purchase. You can send one or more cart abandonment emails to any known mailable contact who meets your abandonment criteria by combining your cart value threshold with time last seen targeting.

  • Give shoppers a reason to buy now. The best abandonment strategies combine urgency along with a special offer within their abandonment displays and emails. For example, a time-limited discount can move interested shoppers from “maybe later” to clicking the buy button.

  • Create a tiered abandonment strategy. Build a tiered abandonment strategy based on the value of what is in your shoppers’ cart and their order history to maximize profitability for your business and entice your most valuable shoppers to complete their purchases
