Abandoned Cart Emails are a Thing of the Past

The average open rate of an abandoned Messenger reminder is over 90%. *Queue jaw drop* Where as the email reminders average somewhere between 25-45%. On Messenger, nearly every message is either opened or interacted with. You can message the customer multiple times within a 24-hour period and once after that window expires. This direct 1:1 interaction engages the customer on a new level, making them more likely to complete their purchase.
