Abandoned cart recovery

Many customers add products to their shopping cart on a website and leave the page without buying anything. Implementing an abandoned cart strategy in your account will allow you to recover some of these unprocessed purchases and increase your revenues.

In this article, you'll learn how to create an abandoned cart email.

  

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

  

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

 

How it works

To implement this strategy, we’ll create a workflow that reacts to cart abandonment and sends an email to the contact in question.
To optimize this mailing, we’ll check if the price of the cart is higher than zero, and if it includes one or more types of products, so that the contact receives an email with one design or another.
