Retargeting Shoppers with Checkout Abandonment Notifications

What is Checkout Abandonment?

When a shopper adds an item(s) to their cart, enters their personal and credit card information in the checkout stage, and then decides not to complete their purchase, this is referred to as checkout abandonment (whether they have an account or as a guest checkout)

Why is checkout abandonment a problem for retailers? 

Checkout abandonment is something that eCommerce organizations should pay special attention to in order to uncover any issues that can be solved to give customers a more seamless checkout experience. 

This is one of the aspects of running an online business where identifying and correcting a process step can significantly influence sales.

Sending a checkout abandonment notification with a clear delivery date is helpful in re-engaging cart abandoners and building a relationship with them. By sending abandoned checkout emails and SMS retailers can recover lost sales and increase conversion.

Sending checkout abandonment notifications with FenixCommerce

FenixCommerce has ready integration with popular eCommerce platforms such as Shopify, WooCommerce, and BigCommerce. Retailers can send checkout abandonment emails and SMS through the Fenix platform. Here are more details on both features.
