An abandoned cart is the best practice to send your email before your customer orders the product they "abandoned".
This is typically utilized in cases where users add a product to an online shopping cart on an e-commerce website but do not complete their purchase. Users may abandon because they aren’t ready to buy. Rather, customers are shopping around and comparing costs while using their basket more as a "wish list". So it's frequently all it takes to direct customers to finish checking out is to set up automatic and customized email alerts that remind them they have things in their basket.
Abandoned cart examples:

The customer places an item in their online shopping cart on an e-commerce site but doesn't finish the transaction, as customers who aren't ready to buy may abandon it. So they are using their cart as more of a "wish list" as they shop around and compare prices.
In order to generate an abandoned cart within an email template, it is necessary to have a list of Merge tags, which are dynamic variables responsible for transferring the relevant products to the email template. These Merge tags must be related to your ESP (email service provider) used for sending email campaigns. To get a list of the required Merge tags, kindly reach out to your ESP's support team.
How to create an abandoned cart within Stripo?

To preserve your Merge tags for future use in other email templates, access the Project settings and save the required tags in the designated section:
Once added, they can be found in the Merge tag menu under the "Custom tags" title:
There are 2 additional ways to create the abandoned cart design:
1) using prebuilt Modules:
Our library consists of a considerable number of already prepared modules that our designers have thought to the smallest detail. Within these modules, you can easily locate pre-built product card modules and incorporate your merge tags into the block.

2) using Prepared templates with already designed abandoned carts. You can find them under the "Type" category and select "Abandoned Cart".
There are different topics, such as clothes, techniques, and others.
Important to note: merge tags should be provided by the ESP and work with their environment. You can only add merge tags within Stripo and export an email template for future sending.
