By the way, can you please specify which chat system do you use?



Right now we use desk.com but the built in chat does not work very well so if you have any recommendations that would be great.

We are always open to suggestions.

Thank you.


Yes I know it is just a template and can be easily modified to say anything. Sometimes I wonder if it isnt't better for QT to just leave some of these variables empty or better yet with text like "this is language variable blah-blah, enter text that suits your site...." or something like this so to force user to modify the text. Maybe with list of variables in admin which need to be setup, maybe even as part of the post install setup....

I would probably be the last person to ask what the language for abandoned cart email should be....

For some reason, mine is not sending out the email automatically even though I have it set as such.

Yesterday I sent out about 10 notifications manually and finally got one order recovered so it does work. Had to re-word some of the verbiage a bit. I think the new upgrade which shows the thumbnails should increase recoveries.

Yes, I think no more than one email should be sent, and it must be sent relatively soon after the cart is abandoned.

I'm not an expert in this question, but I've used Olark and I liked it:

Probably you'd be interested.

1 out of 10 is a good result actually, I'm glad it works for you.

The thumbnail idea was mine so I feel extra special lol...

I agree with only sending 1 email but I strongly think this module should show the potential points earned and a link to the page that displays points earnings.

I really hope you guys can implement this soon.

Nice module. We've purchased and are doing some testing at the moment. Hope to roll it out soon to our live site.

It'd be great to have the option to send multiple unique emails to customers.

For example-

Email 1 (Sent 3 hrs after abandonment): We noticed you didn't complete your purchase, can we help?

Email 2 (Sent 10 hrs after abandonment): We're saving your items, but our more popular products sell out quickly so act fast!

Email 3 (Sent 24 hrs after abandonment): To help make up your mind, here's a coupon.

I feel this would offer more flexibility and not condition customers to abandon the cart in order to get a coupon.
