Cart Abandonment rate refers to the percentage of people who add a product to their cart but don't complete a purchase.
Several factors contribute to a high shopping cart abandonment rate. The top 5 reasons for abandonments during checkout are high extra costs (shipping fees, taxes), account-creation required, long/complicated checkout, unclear pricing and untrustworthy site. Besides these, other possible causes include slow delivery, slow website loading, lack of payment methods, and an unsatisfactory returns policy.
Abandoned carts can directly impact your business growth. According to Forrester's research, Shopping Cart Abandonment causes E-commerce stores to lose $18 billion in sales revenue every year. That's more than the net worth of Tobi Lutke, CEO of Shopify. As a Shopify store owner, one of your primary goals should be abandonment reduction.
