Bonus Tips: How to Reduce WooCommerce Cart Abandonment Rate

How to Reduce WooCommerce Cart Abandonment Rate

When customers add products to the cart but don’t complete the order, it is termed cart abandonment. Until today, the average cart abandonment rate in all the eCommerce industries is 65.23%.

This is a big headache for any eCommerce site owner today. Following some tried-and-tested approaches, you can bring a massive change in your cart abandonment rate by a fair margin. Let’s cover them below:

1. Keep No Hidden Cost

Hidden costs are the number one reason for the excessive cart abandonment rate. Baymard Institute reveals in research, 55% of potential customers leave the checkout pages uncompleted once they find additional costs there.

So, be clear about the total cost of each of your products including shopping cost, packing charges, tax, and others in the product description.

2. Provide Multiple Payment Options

Unless you integrate multiple payment methods, it can shorten the number of your potential customers. Today, there are numerous payment systems in the market. Hence, customers are no longer sticking only to the debit and credit card system.

So, you must allow digital wallet, bank transfer, prepaid card, cash-on-delivery, and other payment options if possible.

3. Offer Multiple Shipping Options

Slow delivery causes 19% cart abandonment in the eCommerce world. Customers always want the fastest delivery at the lowest possible cost. But there are many products whose shipping charge remarkably goes up if delivered fast.

Therefore, you must allow multiple shipping options. It will enable customers to choose the best courier option that matches their time and affordability.

4. Use Clear Call to Action (CTA) Buttons

Clear CTA buttons can create urgency, robust commitment, and emotionally trigger the customers. But many eCommerce websites fail to weigh this value. Some most popular CTA buttons are: 

  • Buy Now 
  • Complete My Purchase
  • Grab It Today
  • Get My Discount
  • Redeem My Voucher

So, you must learn how to make your CTA buttons so powerful and use them in which situations.

5. Remind Customers about Their Cart Contents

There are many customers who love to add products to their carts but forget to check them later on. In that case, you can send follow-up emails to the customers including a short summary of the products after regular intervals. It will make them re-think about the items whether to purchase or not.

6. Create Urgency to Grab Your Products

Urgency can push customers to complete their orders as soon as possible. But to create such a situation, you must offer them some extra value. Such as discounts, free shipping, 2-day delivery, free item, etc. Some high converting ad copies to create urgency are:

  • Don’t miss out
  • Stock clearance sales
  • Last chance
  • Exclusive one-day sale!
  • Limited stock

Email marketing is also a great way to spread urgency in the market. Learn how to write appealing email subjects and descriptions.

7. Ensure Return and Refund Policy

Today, customers are more meticulous in choosing online platforms to make their shopping. Each year 11% of online users drop the eCommerce websites that don’t have a clear return and refund policy.

Because without them customers can’t continue to shop with confidence. Therefore, to uphold the brand value of your business, you must include the return and refund policies on your website.

8. Keep the Checkout Page Easy and Simple

Once customers step into the checkout page, it means they are almost ready to complete the order. So, would it be wise to confuse them with too many form fields and complexity? According to Semrush, 27% of cart abandonment is caused due to complicated checkout processes.

So, you must keep the checkout page very simple. Just ask for the most essential information such as

  • Name
  • Shipping address
  • Email address
  • Payment details

Alongside, never ask for any personal or sensitive information here.
