WooCommerce Live Checkout Field Capture – Save Abandoned Carts


WooCommerce Live Checkout Field Capture plugin saves all activity in the WooCommerce checkout form before it is submitted.
Now you will be able to see who has abandoned their shopping carts and you will be able to manually contact them and remind about the abandoned cart. You could offer them an additional discount on the cart by sending them a coupon in order to persuade them.

If the user completes the payment and receives a “Thank you” page he is removed from the Checkout Field Capture table.

I started working on this plugin since WooCommerce currently does not come with an integrated solution for recovering abandoned carts and I wanted to develop one myself that would be very simple and lightweight. I built this plugin in order to register and recover abandoned carts in a website that sells light cube lamps since there were many people who left the checkout process.

At the time when I started working on this project I knew that there were couple of plugins already available but they were offering a lot of functionality that slowed down my project and had many features that were not necessary. Also I wasn’t sure about the security that they provided and I wanted to contribute to WordPress community by helping others with the same need to see abandoned carts and recover them.

While continuing to be working on website design and development I will be managing this plugin in order to keep up with the WooCommerce and WordPress updates.

Note: If the fields are added outside of Checkout page or Checkout page input field ID values are changed, the plugin will not be able to load data.
Input field ID values should be default:

  • #billing_email
  • #billing_first_name
  • #billing_last_name
  • #billing_phone

If WordPress changes the location of “admin-ajax.php” file, then will have to update it.

Plugin dependencies:

  1. Uses WordPress private WP_List_Table class in order to output the table in the admin section. If this class changes, the table and all of its functions might break.
  2. WordPress WooCommerce hooks



  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/plugin-name directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress.
  3. Look for the page “Checkout Field Capture” under “WooCommerce” menu – WooCommerce abandoned carts data collected from your checkout form will be saved here unless the user completes the checkout process.


Where can I view WooCommerce abandoned carts?

After installation the plugin will be available under “WooCommerce” menu. Please see 1st screenshot.
