Last year a survey by SmartCompany found that 65% of AU consumers were planning on purchasing Christmas gifts online.** Pretty exciting stuff… until you read that retailers are facing a basket drop off rate of 74%***


Globally approximately $US4 trillion worth of merchandise will be abandoned in online shopping carts this year, and about 63% of that is potentially recoverable by savvy online retailers***
