I can’t track my abandoned cart when I use the API
The abandoned cart report may not reflect data due to the following reasons,
Track Abandoned Carts not enabled under Checkout
Email not enabled under Checkout & Self-Serve Portal > Fields > Account information
Abandoned cart reports are populated/synchronized in intervals
12 hours in the Test site
2 hours in the Live site
Abandoned cart data is retained for 30 days only. (Cannot be extended)
If tracking via API, ensure that the “checkout info” attribute is added in the Hosted page
One-time payment checkout doesn't support abandoned card feature
Abandoned cart: This feature is currently available on selective plans. Please refer to Chargebee plans and pricing page. If you are on our previous plans then this feature is available on Scale and above plans.
Enable Track Abandoned Carts
To enable track abandoned carts, Go to
> Checkout and Self-Serve Portal
> Turn on the Track abandoned carts toggle.
Enable “Email” in Account Information under Checkout & Self-Serve Portal
The abandoned cart works only if the email address in the account information field is populated. You can enable the email field in the Account information section under,
> Configure Chargebee
> Checkout & self-serve portal
> Account information
> Enable Email
If this is an existing customer record we recommend marking the email field as “Read-Only”(as email field is unique to each customer) so that it auto-populates when the customer checkouts, removing the need to enter the email again and avoid any misspelling.
