There are three main implementations of abandoned carts/abandoned checkout across the platform and our integrations.
- A platform-only version (known as the abandoned carts module, for our non-Magento and non-Shopify users)
- A native version for Dotdigital for Magento 2/Magento
- A Shopify connector version (available natively as abandoned checkout, but can be augmented to make use of the platform's abandoned carts module functionality)
Don't mix and matchThese are all separate versions, and shouldn't be used in combination with each other (unless documented in the case of the Shopify connector) - otherwise you'll encounter problems.
The implementations are listed below, with links to their associated support articles. Please only make use of the implementation that meets your needs.

Dotdigital for Magento
If you're using our Shopify connector, please use its native abandoned checkout functionality. An abandoned checkout is different to an abandoned cart - it's triggered when a customer abandons your site from the checkout page (after adding items to their cart). An abandoned cart is triggered when a customer abandons your site from any page, including the checkout page.
It's possible to convert this process into abandoned cart functionality by adding extra scripts (taken from the platform's abandoned carts module) to your website.
