Woo Cart Abandonment Recovery is a free plugin for WooCommerce designed to help store owners recover lost sales by targeting customers who abandon their carts before completing a purchase. This powerful tool automates the process of following up with these potential customers, increasing the chances of converting abandoned carts into completed sales.

CartFlows, the developer of the plugin, has research that shows that 60-80% of users who visit a cart checkout page do not complete the transaction. Even some of the most optimized order processes have abandonment rates of over 20%.

Woo Cart Abandonment Recovery is completely free, although CartFlows has many other products to help increase your conversion rate.

The plugin is very easy to set up, is fully automated, and provides detailed reporting on how much revenue it has recovered for you.

Although both WooCommerce and Woo Cart Abandonment Recovery are both compatible with all of our WordPress hosting plans, for optimal performance of your store we recommend running your eCommerce website on a WordPress VPS.
