How Abandoned Cart Emails Work
Sends 1 hour later
Sometimes, all it takes is nudge to get customers to return to your online store and complete their purchase. The Reminder Email notifies your customers that they left items in their cart and includes a link to complete their order.
The Expiring Incentive
Sends 24 hours later
Didn't bite the first time? The Expiring Incentive Email contains a limited-time coupon code, giving customers the extra motivation they need to buy. Privy’s Shopify integration lets you embed coupon codes directly in your email and specify when they should expire.
The Last Chance
Sends 48 hours later
Nobody likes missing out on a deal. That’s why the Last Chance Email reminds your customers that their limited-time coupon is about to expire. This third nudge builds urgency and should help you recover more abandoned carts.
