E-commerce activities have experienced rapid growth within the last five years. The global e-commerce industry made more than $3 trillion in sales last year, making it one of the most profitable businesses in recent times.
E-commerce also brings a lot of benefits to the customers as well. It is time-saving compared to brick and mortar shopping and is more convenient as customers can save items to their cart for future shopping. But most times, customers may not remember to check items saved in their shopping carts.
This problem of shopping cart abandonment or incomplete checkout has plagued e-commerce stores for long, but there’s a solution.
Zebrabuzz platform has a highly responsive, interactive and rich platform which your customers can engage with. In this article, the central aim will be to show you how to send a custom reminder message to your customers who forgot to check out but have added their desired products to their shopping cart.
