How popups by AfterShip Email can help recover abandoned carts

Drive urgency: Countdown timers ace the job when it comes to encouraging visitors to complete the purchase. The fear of missing out a great deal is what drives them to checkout faster.
Incentivize: Incentivization is a tried and tested tool to motivate customers to take the desired action. Add easy-to-copy coupon codes to your cart recovery popups to reward them for completing the order.
Add benefit-driven value: Tell visitors what they will get upon placing the order. Offer discounts or free shipping in exchange for a quick checkout. More than giving their email address, customers are more interested in what they will get out of the deal.
