SureCart is the new e-commerce platform that officially launched just before this year’s Black Friday. Despite its very young age, SureCart offers powerful full-blown e-commerce features such as subscriptions, VAT/tax calculations (both already included in the free version), order bumps, cart abondonment recovery and more. And all this without any additional plugins, extensions or add-ons.
Let’s take a look at the latter feature here.
Abandoned Cart Recovery
Unfortunately, customers sometimes add products to their shopping cart and then proceed to the checkout without completing it. For example, they may have been distracted by a phone call, a visitor or their children. Regardless of the reason, you want to recover these lost orders.
How does it work?
Fortunately, SureCart makes this very easy and requires no add-ons. Once the customer has entered their email address in the checkout, SureCart captures both the shopping cart and the email. You can then set the platform to send a reminder email to the customer after a certain time, e.g. after 2 hours, to complete the purchase. If he doesn’t do this, the second email goes out the next day, for example, and the third and final one 5 days later.
You also have the option of offering a coupon with a fixed amount or a percentage rate as an additional incentive. In addition, you can also specify whether the discount should be granted once, forever or repeatedly and set the expiration of the discount in days.
For GDPR compliance, you can also toggle on a customisable text field that will be shown below the email field in the checkout form. The default text says: „Your email and cart are saved so we can send email reminders about this order.“.
Basically, it’s a very easy way to generate more revenue – automatically. Of course, SureCart also provides detailed abandoned cart statistics.
How do I get it?
Cart Abandonment is included in all paid SureCart plans. The Startup plan includes 25 recovered carts per month, the Business plan 200 and the Pro Plan up to 400. What may not sound like much at first, especially in the Startup plan, is actually more than enough for many small shops. With an abandoned cart recovery rate of 10%, we are talking about 250 orders per month!
