We were lookign at getting some extension for abandoned carts so that we could email out to the customer and try to get them back, perhaps with an incentive such as a voucher etc.

Ahead works make good extensions and we were looking to get theirs, however we found an excellent extension by ebizmarts, and it’s FREE.

Its to integrate into mailchimp for your email marketing but also includes an abandoned cart email. Im testing it out now and it has successfully sent an email to myself after i abandoned a cart. You can set it to send out x emails and send out a voucher code to tempt the customer back. You can send the voucher code out with the first email or with the second or third email etc whatever you feel is best.

Magemonkey is availabe for FREE on magento connect, remember to disable compilation before installing any new extensions.

Howdy Calum,

How cool is that!

Do note I just spammed such an email as I’ve received the same notice everyday for the past 3 days, quite annoying. One reminder quite close to when the cart was abandoned should be plenty without annoying em :)

Oh and you just reminded me, “Supports Mandrill and STS for transactional email delivery”.

You’ll be using Mandrill soon as that will allow you to deliver up to 12,000 emails for free (a few $ after that) and use MailChimps systems to ensure that your emails get delivered.

We use Mandrill for the UE site emails.

Cheers guys, ive got my eye on their POS for magento as well if I do decide to get some sort of physical presence going to compliment the online side of things.

Ive set up mandrill and it looks like its another really good service to have.

look forward to seeing what it is they are working on next

Howdy Calum,

Dave’s got the POS working on his iPad at the moment as eBizmarts got us set up last year with it. It’s well cool!

Mandrill, it’s ace, which is why we use it :)

Yea ebizmarts let us do some beta testing with it, but it may as well have just been the finished piece, it looked great and worked without fault. Obviously didnt get to test printing invoices etc, but totally assured this is a piece of cake, all in all there POS looks brilliant.
