If you are like me, you check you WordPress stats, Google Analytics or what ever statistical application you might use. If you’re selling digital products I am sure you trying to find the balance between site visitors and sales. Easy Digital Downloads Abandoned Cart extension might be a small bridge between the two.
A simple solution
Abandoned Cart only requires one thing to be effective. The visitor needs to enter there email address on the checkout page. They don’t have to follow through with the checkout process /though that what we’re all hoping for.
How does it work?
When a visitor has items in the cart, and visits the checkout page, Abandoned Cart goes to work in the background. Whey the user enters their email address the plugin saves that email address to the database to be used later. If the checkout process is completed then that email address is removed from the Abandoned Cart database.
