Shopping carts bridge the gap between shopping and buying, so having the best shopping cart software is extremely important on your website.

It’s likely that those just starting out in the market may be unfamiliar with the concept.

Wish List

Wish lists are collections of desired products saved by customers to their user account, signifying interest without immediate intent to purchase.

Offering wish lists is an effective way to reduce shopping cart abandonment and fulfill sales from customers who showed intent but didn’t end up purchasing. Wish lists are mutually beneficial: they give customers an easy way to remind themselves of a product and help merchants measure product interest beyond a clear-cut sale.

  • Tracking Wish List (Single)

Emails and Campaigns

Email campaigns are designed to reach out to subscribers at the best time and provide valuable content and relevant offers. Using email campaigns allows you to build deep and trusting relationships with your customers. Email Campaigns make communication with clients easier and more effective.
