Common Causes of Shopping Cart Abandonment

Published by BMT Micro on


Shopping cart abandonment is the largest obstacle for online businesses to overcome. According to Baymard Institute, the average rate of cart abandonment has now grown close to 70%. It’s also impossible for an online business to fully prevent abandoned carts. Unfortunately, even fairly basic errors can be costly and can drive away customers & steal revenue without you even realizing it.

The first step in addressing shopping cart abandonment is to understand why visitors are abandoning their cart. In the following infographic, we’ll be looking at the common causes of shopping cart abandonment and ways to reduce it.

E-commerce shoppers are smart and when they are looking to purchase a product or service they will browse multiple sites, compare products, pricing and shipping costs. As an online business, you must find ways to encourage customers to complete their online purchases on your site.
