Recover abandoned carts

Cart abandonment refers to when a visitor on your online store adds items to their cart, but instead of completing the purchase, leaves. Studies have shown that running re-marketing campaigns can increase the chances of recovering abandoned carts.

If you have subscribed to the Growth plan of Instamojo store, an automated email will be sent to customers within thirty minutes of cart abandonment. Here’s how the automated email looks like:
