As much as 80.3% of online shopping carts are abandoned, according to a study by the Baymard Institute. However, just a few simple measures can address this problem and boost your customer conversion and sales. For example, 17% of shoppers abandon their carts because they are concerned about unsecure websites. This can be easily fixed by displaying security badges from reputable online security companies (McAfee, Hackersafe, etc.). Also, offering free shipping can bring a huge increase in sales. 69% of consumers are more likely to shop at stores with free shipping and 61% would quit their order if free shipping wasn’t offered. We will brainstorm other solutions to popular obstacles in the eCommerce world, which can provide a fresh perspective for your business.
