Abandoned shopping carts remain a huge unsolved problem for ecommerce stores (according to independent research firm Statista, an astonishing 88% of online shopping orders were abandoned). While there are many ways to reduce shopping cart abandonment, one easy to implement solution is to optimize the timing of your abandoned cart email, SMS or push notifications.
White River knew the importance of customer purchase timing and tailoring marketing flows to these timings. Specifically, they wanted to understand the time it took from customer account creation to first purchase to improve their cart abandonment flow, but there was no easy way to find this data insight.
Using Shopify data, Segments provided insights into the purchase timings of the 1st customer order, within the first 24 hours and for the first 30 days, showing the precise % of customer purchase by the hour and by day.
Typical “good” cart abandonment flows see 38% open rates, 7.7% CTR, and 2.9% conversion rates.
Prior to Segments, White River based the timings of their cart abandonment flow on an educated guess using Klaviyo recommendations.
With Segments data insights, White River replaced the guessing with sophisticated data science. Leveraging the insights from Segments, White River adjusted the timing sequences of their email, SMS, and push notifications, achieving amazing results:
