Shopping Cart Recovery

eCorner recently completed and announced the beta testing of our new Shopping Cart Recovery system. Most online stores have a percentage of the shopping carts that are created by visitors then abandoned before the sale is compete. There are many reasons for this but generally the person who started the cart is just looking to see the final price. They may then go to other online stores and do the same thing. Often they never complete a purchase.

It has been shown that if you contact those potential customers you can often bring them back to your store and increase your basket conversion rates. The Cart Recovery System allows you to generate and send automated emails to people who have started and then abandoned the shopping basket. This process when done well can increase your completed baskets by a signifigant percentage.

Cart Recover Service operates via Wagtail Reporting and Analytics which is used to collect the basket information necessary to comunicate back to the customer. It is available now with the Pro version of Wagtail Analytics and Reporting. You can find our more by checking out the Cart Recovery System blog. Please contact us for more information or to upgrade to the Pro version of Wagtail.
