What is Abandoned Cart?

Let’s say you have 100 visitors on your store and 60 of them visited at least one of the product page. Out of those 60 visitors let’s say 20 of them added at least one product to their carts. 14 out of 20 of those visitors leave your store without seeing the your checkout page.

As you see there are huge differences when you think this way.

When you check your Google Analytics events you’ll see events showing your visitors behavior on your store.

Google Analytics - Shopify Abandoned Cart Events

  1. Add to Cart Event: This event will fire when your visitors add a product to their cart.
  2. Begin Checkout: This event will fire when your visitors starts the checkout process and open the checkout page.

Our target sessions having add_to_cart event but not begin_checkout event. These sessions added product to their cart but leave your store without starting the checkout process.

You can create cart abandonment report for your Shopify store creating a segment using these events.

My recommendation is creating this report using Google Looker Studio. You can create different reports such as their source/medium, devices, daily changes, pages they visited, geolocations just start a few.

Then you can schedule cart abandonment report for you and your team and you can get daily report.
