Last year, we released our Deep Data integration so that WooCommerce users could seamlessly bring WooCommerce data into ActiveCampaign. This includes transactions, purchased items, revenue per order, total customer revenue, and more. Today, we’re extending that integration even further with the ActiveCampaign for WooCommerce plugin.
The new WooCommerce plugin moves beyond bringing data into ActiveCampaign and further connects marketing capabilities with your ecommerce store with the ability to:
Trigger abandoned cart emails when items are left in the shopping cart
Create a customizable checkbox at checkout to let customers opt-in to marketing
Trigger Abandoned Cart Emails
Why does this happen?
It can be an overly complicated checkout, or high shipping costs, sometimes people just aren’t ready to buy. It’s hard to know, but what we do know is that a simple email about their abandoned cart results in more than 10% of them completing their purchase.
That can be big for your business. Today, we’re releasing a plugin for WooCommerce users that enables you to set how long ActiveCampaign should wait before triggering abandoned cart automation, similar to what’s currently available for Shopify users.
Now you’ll be able to send automated emails to your future customers who have abandoned their cart.
Opt-in checkbox at checkout
Collecting email addresses at checkout is key to communicating with your customers about their purchases. Ecommerce stores typically also use that information to send marketing emails — promotions, new products, etc — but with new GDPR regulations, businesses need to give people the choice to opt-in to marketing content.
Through the ActiveCampaign for WooCommerce plugin, you can now seamlessly add an opt-in to marketing checkbox during checkout.
When people opt-in to marketing, you’ll find you have better open rates and more engaged contacts.
More to come
As is our spirit, we’ll continue to iterate upon this plugin, so keep your eyes peeled for broader, more powerful functionality.
