What is frustrating American online shoppers and how can businesses minimise shopping cart abandonment, or encourage these buyers to return to their baskets?
Over 1,000 ecommerce online consumer interactions, from Visual Website Optimizer (VWO, a website testing platform company), reveals these frustrations and also the positive drivers to encourage shoppers to purchasing their products post abandonment.
The Ecommerce survey shows the main drivers for consumers abandoning their shopping cart from companies is 1. companies not being transparent about shipping costs and 2. consumers being forced to create a new account.
It's interesting that abandoned shoppers can be converted, as 54% will purchase their 'basket items' if they are contacted with a discount.
