Customer Insights

During the past months, we gathered insights on the main reasons causing cart abandonment for ShineOn and provided actionable tips to their team on what parts of the business would require improvement and optimization. Here’s what we’ve found out:

  • Technical issues - Cartloop’s Experts are able to navigate through technical questions and challenges shoppers are experiencing during their buying journey in real-time, while the brand's team made improvements in the back-end.
  • Delivery is too slow - Most people ask about the delivery time. A lot of merchants have been experiencing delayed shipments due to the pandemic. That's why having a conversational solution in place will keep customers constantly in the loop and will increase their confidence levels until their orders arrive. By interacting in real-time with their customers, providing updates, support or discounts is one of ShineOn's competitive advantages.
  • Credit cards being declined - When an order is not going through, the brand's team is immediately noticed by our Live Experts. Meanwhile, the shopper is presented with alternative payment methods available on the site.
