eBook “How Online Shopping Carts Kill DRTV Campaigns and What To Do About It,” Addresses 78 Percent Abandonment Rate

July 11, 2012 No Comments


Customer Acquisition Agency Acquirgy and Real-Time Ecommerce Shopping Cart Recovery Leader SeeWhy Co-Publish eBook Featuring Proven Solutions

BOSTON, Mass. — July 11, 2012 — Shopping cart abandonment is an astounding 78 percent for DRTV campaigns, which means that almost 8 of 10 consumers who place one or more products in their online shopping carts do not complete the transaction. Acquirgy and SeeWhy co-published this eBook to alert marketers to the serious nature of this problem and show how solutions can result in significant reductions in abandonment.

The data presented in the eBook is based on a massive SeeWhy Conversion Academy study involving 617,247 consumers and 264,631 U.S. ecommerce transactions; the shopping cart abandonment rates and related factors were identified for all types of ecommerce sites, and as a subset, DRTV product sites.

“DRTV marketers experience an abandonment rate that is a full six percentage points higher than other marketers,” said SeeWhy CEO Charles Nicholls. “We’ve identified two buckets of reasons, all related to timing and money,” he added.

Adds EVP of Acquirgy Irv Brechner, “Abandonment is one of those little known issues that DRTV marketers need to understand and take action to reduce. Otherwise, it could be a contributing factor to an underperforming program.”

The eBook is available for immediate download at:
