Unlike when shopping directly at the store, customers buying online will have many choices from products to stores and agents. And most customers often have a habit of adding items that they find interesting to their shopping cart, leaving it, and looking at other products. Then, they can't decide what to buy and leave the cart there.
Numerous studies indicate that more than 50% of online shopping carts are abandoned. It's a huge source of lost revenue for e-commerce websites. In fact, this number may be even more for small online businesses, which are weak in using advanced tools to take care of customers and improve interaction rates.
PrestaShop store owners also have a headache when looking at abandoned cart numbers. It is essential to have a module that automates reminding customers of their abandoned carts, as well as supporting the store in marketing programs!
If you are using our Abandoned Cart Reminder + Auto Email module, there is a great feature that you should not skip - Cronjob.
The Cronjob feature helps you automatically send reminder emails and emails of marketing campaigns to customers; besides, deleting expired vouchers according to the schedule you set up.
This article will guide you on how to set up Cronjob on the server for the Abandoned Cart Reminder + Auto Email module. If you are using any of the PrestaHero modules that have a cronjob feature, you can also refer to this post.
