Opencart Abandoned Cart Module
Imagine if shopping in the real world were the same as shopping online. You walk into a supermarket or a department store, start filling up your shopping cart, only to be suddenly distracted by a puppy wearing a cute little Hat in Aisle 3. You promptly forget about whatever it is you were thinking of buying, watch the Puppy for a while, then walk out of the store.
Admittedly, this scenario is… unlikely. However, this happens all the time in the world of eCommerce. Despite your best-laid plans, users visit your site, start shopping, then close the tab so they can watch the latest trailer for Season 3 Stranger Things, never to Return.
This is what shopping cart abandonment is. Shopping cart abandonment is when shoppers ad an item or items to a website's shopping cart, but leave before finishing the transaction.
