Abandonment is an e-commerce term used to describe a visitor on a web page who leaves that page before completing the desired action. Examples of abandonment include shopping cart abandonment, referring to visitors who add items to their online shopping cart, but exit without completing the purchase.
Our latest cart abandonment data from 2019 puts the global average cart abandonment rate at 69.91% across all sectors.
However, it’s important to note that cart abandonment rates vary by sector, as different sites have very different purchase processes and customer behavior.

Thankfully, the rate can be decreased by several key tactics and strategies such as improving the browser experience, making the checkout as easy as possible and also via building trust, loyalty and awareness.

To avoid customers looking for alternatives, it’s crucial to provide real-time customer service during the checkout process, especially if it is lengthy or too complex.
The checkout process can be considered complex if you ask for too much information or require the customer to register before checking out. It’s important to remember that the checkout process should be as simple and short as possible.
By providing real-time support during the checkout process, you can decrease the shopping cart abandonment rate by double digits and increase your conversion rate at the same time.
Be available to answer all questions that your customers may have about your products, delivery, or pricing.
Because buyers are tech-savvy and always on the lookout for the best deal, oftentimes they add items into their cart, but also look for the same items on other sites with better conditions (shipping, price, date & time of delivery.) In essence, these types of buyers haven’t made up their mind yet in regards to which site they should purchase from.
By utilizing proactive chat invitations, you can easily provide the customer with a positive service experience that convinces them that your shop is the right one to buy from.
