Add to Cart Flow

The Add To Cart flow targets visitors who have items in their cart with emails to encourage them to proceed to checkout. Through timely reminders and addressing objections, it helps convert shoppers who are showing buyer intent.

What’s an Add to Cart Flow?

The Add To Cart Flow is series of emails targeting customers who added product(s) to cart but didn't start checkout. Some of these shoppers may be new to your brand while others may be returning customers exploring new items or thinking about repurchasing products they’ve already tried.

Flow Length: 36 hours

What’s the goal of an Add to Cart Flow?

Get shoppers who added a product to cart but didn’t start checkout to make their purchase which:

  1. Converts more new email subscribers into paying customers (which means more revenue!)
  2. Gets potential customers to make their first purchase faster (ie. the amount of time it takes someone to go from being aware of the brand to becoming a customer)
  3. Gets more revenue out of each lead you drive to your website (which means lower CPAs & more value from your website traffic)
  4. Gets more shoppers purchasing
