Every now and then, while shopping on a website, a customer may be distracted by something else that they forget to complete the checkout after adding products to their cart. And when their contact information is provided but the customer doesn’t complete the order, the result is that their cart is stored as an abandoned checkout.
At this time, it’s only for the Online Store that has abandoned checkout recovery while abandoned checkouts on Shopify POS or third-party sales channels will not receive a checkout recovery email. So, if you are using Shopify POS or third-party sales channel and you want to send them an abandoned checkout notification, the first thing you need to have is their email address provided before they abandon the checkout. If a customer doesn’t enter their email address, then you can’t send them the notification. However, if they do, and you get their email address, you can email a customer a link to their abandoned checkout manually. This will help you a lot in increasing your number of orders and maximize revenue.
And here are some simple steps that I have prepared for you on how to email a customer a link to their abandoned checkout manually. Scroll down for more detail.
Tip: You can keep customers from abandoning their carts by using discount codes, exit offer, and security badges.
