Advanced Cart Recovery is the best free plugin for recovering abandoned carts in WooCommerce. It automatically emails customers when they abandon their current shopping cart (eg. non-payment of orders, cancelled orders, etc) and asks them to continue with their purchase.

  1. Detect when customers abandon cart and save their cart contents
  2. Emails customer on a set schedule and provides a link to continue their order
  3. Automatically sets up their shopping cart again so they can purchase

Some features at a glance:


Automatically sends emails on a schedule that you define to prompt customers into recovering their abandoned shopping cart.


Gives the customer a simple link which restores their cart to the state it was in before they abandoned.

Makes continuing with their order a simple choice of proceeding to payment.


Easy management screen shows exactly who abandoned their order and when. At a glance get a run down of how many cart recoveries are happening and how many are successful.

More amazing statistics are available in the Premium add-on with custom reports!


Complete blacklist and unsubscribe functionality built-in. View customers who unsubscribed and add additional blacklisted emails manually.


Simply setup your email schedules once (WooCommerce->Settings, Cart Recovery tab) and the plugin will do all the heavy lifting for you from that time onwards.

It works straight out of the box with the latest WooCommerce and will work with most themes and plugins.

We’re also constantly testing new themes and plugin combinations to ensure maximum compatibility.

Quite some things wrong with this plugin. First of all, when trying to change the settings the 'tour' won't close when I press close... Quite irritating, but since it does not cover critical fields, not a real disaster. More annoying the plugin keeps on 'deactivating' itself for some mysterious reasons.
