Abandoned-Cart Email Campaigns are an automated set of follow-up emails that are triggered on a periodic schedule. The primary objective of this email sequence is to recover abandoned carts by notifying and reminding the shoppers who made their way to your checkout page, encouraging them to return, and enticing them towards completing their purchase.
An abandoned-cart campaign comprised of three emails results in a higher conversion revenue, according to a benchmark report published by Klaviyo. This email sequence should include a cart reminder, and a sense of urgency through limited sale offers and promotional incentives.
