3. Cart abandonment rate

Online shopping cart abandonment is the process of adding products to the cart and leaving the website without finishing the order. As unfortunate as the situation is, each and every online store is dealing with this issue. Abandoned carts are an integral part of online shopping experience and CartBounty provides the means and tools to measure cart abandonment rate.

CartBounty calculates the cart abandonment rate by dividing the total number of abandoned carts by the total number of initiated shopping carts, including ordered and recovered carts.

[abandoned cart count] / [total cart count] * 100 = [abandonment rate]

This metric provides valuable information about the percentage of customers who start the checkout process but do not complete their purchase. A high abandonment rate may indicate issues with the checkout process, pricing, or other factors driving customers away. Keep an eye out for this report when you are making changes to your store, running sales campaigns or doing nothing specific at all to identify areas for improvement and implement strategies to enhance the shopping experience, ultimately lowering cart abandonment rate and raising sales.

4. Cart recovery rate

Abandoned cart recovery is the process of trying to recover lost sales from customers who have abandoned their shopping carts. CartBounty provides tools like Exit Intent, Early capture and others to increase recoverable shopping carts. Cart recovery rate is calculated by dividing the number of recovered carts by the total number of recoverable carts.

[recovered cart count] / [recoverable cart count] * 100 = [recovery rate]

This is another valuable metric that can be used as a key performance indicator or KPI to measure the effectiveness of your abandoned cart recovery campaigns. It can provide valuable insights into the success of your cart recovery strategies and help identify areas for improvement.

Compare your recovery rate with your store’s historical data or the industry standards, which typically range between 3% and 5%. This will help you determine if your abandoned cart recovery strategies are effective or require improvement. Monitor this data closely when making adjustments to your abandoned cart recovery strategies as it will help you understand if the changes have had a positive impact on your store’s conversion rates and encourage customers to complete their purchases.

5. Average cart value

Another valuable metric in CartBounty reports is average cart value. Average cart value is often used by online businesses to understand customer purchasing behavior and can be used for strategic decision-making. It is calculated by dividing total shopping cart revenue by the total number of carts, including ordered and recovered ones.

[total cart revenue] / [total cart count] = [average cart value]

There are multiple ways you can use average cart value data to your advantage. It can assist in determining the minimum cart value required for customers to qualify for free shipping or a discount, potentially leading to increased revenue. Additionally, it can provide insights into the effectiveness of your marketing campaigns. For example, if there’s an increase in average cart value during a campaign period, it indicates that customers are successfully being encouraged to spend more.

6. Top abandoned products

The top abandoned product report highlights products that most frequently end up being abandoned, offering valuable knowledge into items generating high initial interest but face conversion challenges. From here you can start analyzing these products to identify any areas that may require improvement, such as product images, descriptions, available customization options, pricing strategy, or the overall user experience.

Making even slight improvements in the conversion rates of these top abandoned products can bring impactful benefits and contribute to your sales goals.
