Why do we leave our carts?

Too complicated or lengthy check-out

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 check out. It's important to remember that the checkout process should be as simple and short as possible.

‘Only browsing’

Because buyers are tech-savvy and always on the lookout for the best deal, often times 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.
