Hi everyone .


Had a search but seems no one lese has this issue (that i can find)

we have abandoned cart email on ... in the abandoned cart area of orders it shows as abandoned cart email as "sent" - done  a test on a few emails and nothing received - checked on the email server for spam as well  .. nothing.

any ideas on steps to try to sort his out ?

Hi @Rae_Stella

Ren here from the Shopify support team hoping to help you out here. 

I have a few suggestions for things to check into. Your abandoned checkout settings may be set on a schedule where they are actually sending anywhere from 1 to 24 hours later. You can double check this by going to Settings > Checkout:



Next, consider that there are a number of reasons why an email would not be sent at all: 

  • If a user creates more than one abandoned checkout in a row, then only one email will be sent to that potential customer. When you are running your tests, are you using the same email each time? 
  • If a user creates more than one abandoned checkout and then completes a sale, the recovery email won't send.
  • If a payment processing error occurs before the completion of a sale, the email won't send.
  • If your shop doesn't support shipping to the customer's address, the email won't send.
  • If the user selects their phone number instead of an email during checkout, the email can't be sent. 

You can find more details in the guide here.  


Let me know if I can clarify any of that for you!

Hi Stella,

If you like to reach more visitors, when they abandoned the cart or even the browser without adding anything to cart, but they seem to be interested in some of your products, you can test smarter services like BestPush | Smart Notifications.


No need for your shop visitors to enter their personal information. There are lots of pre-written push notification templates for abandoned cart and other situations ready for you.
