Picture this: you’re running a successful promotional campaign, you’ve attracted a lot of traffic to your store, gained users’ interest, and got them to add different products to their shopping carts… and then they left without paying, right before the transaction was about to be completed. Sounds like a scene from a horror movie? One with a really bad script but is nevertheless scary? Turns out, it’s nothing like a film. It’s the reality for most ecommerce businesses.
According to Baymard Institute, online buyers abandon an average of 68.83% of their shopping carts. In other words, more than every 6 out of 10 would-be-customers decide to leave the store without paying or completing the order. If you ever wondered what the definition of inefficiency was, that one’s really close.
Cart abandonment is often perceived as one of the biggest headaches of modern online retailers. But for those that are able to fix it, it’s a big opportunity. If you can lower the abandonment rate, even by little, it can have a big impact on your bottom line.
