Abandoned cart regeneration | Shopify

Abandoned cart recovery is always a priority in eCommerce. You can help drive sales volume by using a sequence of emails to remind users to retrieve the cart they’ve left on your website.

In this article you’ll learn how to create a cart regeneration workflow in Shopify.

  

Objective: Conversion.
Difficulty: Intermediate.
When to use it: Anytime.

  

This strategy is part of our pool of templates. To implement it in your account, log in to your Connectif account and go to "Workflows Create new workflow". In the Create from template section, enter the name of the workflow (Abandoned cart regeneration | Shopify) in the search engine, then click Select and Create.

 

How it works

To send a sequential abandoned cart email, we are going to configure a workflow that will send an email with the products in the cart to contacts who are subscribed to the newsletter. After this first email, we will set up more emails as a reminder for the user, including wait times and checks to prevent users from receiving messages if they make a purchase before the end of the sequence.
