Add-to-Cart Popup

Learn how the Add-to-Cart popup helps you to capture customers email id and reduce abandoned carts.

Retainful’s 'Add-to-cart popup' feature is a strategic tool for eCommerce platforms. It prompts a popup to collect the customer’s email address as soon as they click “Add to cart”.

What makes it more enticing is the integration of offers within the popup, providing an immediate incentive for customers to share their email, enhancing customer engagement, and reducing cart abandonment.

Why the sign-up form/popup is not showing up on my website? Sign-up form / Popups will not show if ANY of the following scenarios are true:

  • If the customer has already signed up in the form/popup (subscribed)

  • If the customer is already identified or cookies (for example: entered his email address at the checkout or in the signup form/popup)

  • If the customer is already logged in

  • If the popup has a frequency setting enabled and the frequency limit is reached (ex. If the frequency is set to 1 per visitor, the popup shows only once per visitor. It will not show the second time)

NOTE: If you are testing the popup / sign-up form, please open a Private / Incognito Browser window in your browser -> visit your storefront -> and then test.

NOTE: Make sure you do not have multiple incognito windows open.
