WooCommerce Cart Abandonment Recovery


It’s Time to Stop Cart Abandonments and Recover Your Lost Revenue!

Research shows about 60% to 80% of the users who go to the checkout page, do not complete their purchase. Even the best optimized checkout process has an abandonment rate of 20%

Cart gets abandoned for many reasons.

But we have good news for you. Install our plugin and automatically recover your lost revenue absolutely free.

How Does This Plugin Work?

The plugin captures the email address of users on the checkout page.

If the purchase is not completed within 15 minutes, it starts sending an automated series of follow up emails that you can customize to match your brand.

Through the email series, you can: remind them to complete the purchase, ask for feedback or offer a custom discount that will entice potential buyers to complete the purchase. You can send as many emails as you would like.

Below is just an example of email sequence you can have:

  • 1st email after 1 hour: Ask if there was any technical issue.

  • 2nd email after 24 hours: Remind to complete purchase

  • 3rd email after 72 hours: Offer a unique, limited time 5% discount
