Are you maximising your sales?



According to the 2006 E-commerce Benchmark Guide from Marketing Sherpa, the average abandonment rate for shopping carts is around 60%, a figure that has remained pretty constant for several years now. Of this cart abandonment figure, 12% are abandoned before checkout, leaving 48% as the average checkout abandonment rate for e-commerce .
 
To put it more simply, the average e-commerce checkout wipes out just under half of the revenues that customers are in the process of spending.
 
There are a number of tactics that can be employed to assist in reducing the abandonment rate.  Is your checkout suffering from easily-avoidable design problems?  Are your product, price, delivery and payment propositions clear and easily understood by the user?
