Although the reasons for leaving your cart in the virtual shopping aisle vary, one comes out on top – 56% of carts are left due to being presented with unexpected costs at checkout. For more insight into the topic, check out this post on Shopify blog. In today’s post, we check out some cool apps and services to reduce cart abandonment rates and bring those dollars/euros/yen home!
