** Recapture has a long history of success with Abandoned Carts **

Recapture has already helped merchants generate over $175,000,000 in additional revenue since 2015. We’re recovering on average $1,000,000+ a week for sites like yours.

Recapture’s abandoned cart recovery for Restrict Content Pro helps your ecommerce site recover lost revenue from abandoned carts/signups for Restrict Content Pro. Recapture tracks when signups are abandoned on your site, then lets you send recovery emails to encourage the customers who abandoned these carts to complete the purchase.

You can set up as many campaigns and recovery emails as you’d like, and customize the text and design of every email sent.

Recapture has best-in-class email capture capabilities–using email popups, or our new “Add to Cart” email popup, where users enter an email before they add the item to the cart, ensuring easier recovery.

** Emails are Ready-to-go on Install, but easily customized **

You don’t need to spend a lot of time setting up Recapture before you can benefit from it.

Recapture’s emails are setup using best practices out-of-the-box so you can turn them on immediately. Or you can change them using our friendly drag and drop based editor, or even completely customize the content using full HTML. The choice is yours!

Campaigns come configured with ideal timings, but you’re free to set them as you’d like (e.g., send 3 recovery emails per abandoned cart, or a series of 4 emails in a winback campaign), customize their send timing, and use a drag-and-drop editor to change the content. Very friendly for non-technical users. Setting up recovery for abandoned carts on Restrict Content Pro has never been easier.

** Winbacks, Review Reminders, and Email Collectors, oh my! **

Installing Recapture gives you the features of 4 separate plugins with less hassle

Besides abandoned carts for Restrict Content Pro, we support email popups to encourage list building, we support review reminder emails to get customers to provide a review after purchase (social proof increases sales!), and winback emails to encourage customers to be repeat buyers.

When do you consider a cart “abandoned” and how do you get emails from my customers?

A cart is considered abandoned if a customer has added items to the cart, but has not checked out or shown any cart activity for at least 30 minutes. At this point, Recapture starts the timers for your recovery emails.

How do you get emails from my customers?

Recapture can get an email in a few different ways–First, any logged in customer who abandons a cart will receive recovery emails because of their WP profile. Any guest customer who has entered a full, valid email address somewhere in the site (e.g. email popup, our Add to Cart popup, even OTHER plugins that collect emails–Recapture can track that, easily) will receive recovery emails too. Our success here comes from a few secrets in our JavaScript library that makes Recapture so powerful.

Can I include unique coupon codes in my emails?

Yep! Recapture can find and include Restrict Content Pro coupon codes in your automated emails. This gives you a proven and powerful means of increasing conversion rates and generating more orders!
