Researches done in the past have shown that every 7 out of 10 customers who place their items in the shopping cart do not finish the online transaction. All this comes out to be a result of shopping cart abandonment, which is a serious concern for many e-Commerce stores these days. Have you ever given a thought as to why it happens? Studies have concluded the following reasons which leads to cart abandonment-
- Almost 35-40% of the customers abandon their cart because of the hidden fees that show up once the customer moves to the final checkout process. The hidden fees normally includes shipping charges or tax amount which forbids customer to conclude their purchase.
- 30-37% of the customers abandon because they never get a chance to compare price between products and brands. If customer is not satisfied with the pricing and quality of product he has opted for, then chances are rare that he would go ahead.
- Deals, promotions and coupon offers are something that attract customers to go for online shopping. Almost 60-65% of the online customers expects e-Commerce stores to come up with online discounts and promo coupon offers.
- According to a study in U.S. , 11% of shoppers step back from an online purchase because they felt that the registration process during checkout process was very lengthy. The absence of social logins complicates the further processing of online purchase, which in turn leads to loss of sales and customers.
- e-Commerce websites that do not run on smartphones and tablets also face loss in revenue generation. These days majority of the customers use their android phone to browse and explore online stores. The purchase conversion goes low if websites do not encourage multiple channel browsing websites.
