The abandoned cart feature allows you to track when users have added items to their cart and started the checkout process, but then not placed an order. It can be used to automate email messaging that aims to get them to return to the store to complete their purchase.
The feature is built on top of the ActiveCampaign mailing list integration, so setting that up is required before you can use the abandoned cart feature.
This feature is currently in Beta. If you are interested in using it, please get in touch and we can turn it on for your store and help you get set up.
Customers need to be subscribed to an ActiveCampaign mailing list linked with your store. If the customer unsubscribes, the process will ignore any data synchronisation (orders and cart)
