Live Carts for WooCommerce: Track Real-Time, Abandoned, and Converted Carts!

Live Carts for WooCommerce: Track Real-Time, Abandoned, and Converted Carts!


This plugins adds a “Live Carts” item to the WooCommerce menu in the WordPress admin, which provides a listing of customer shopping carts including statuses (active, abandoned, or converted) and values. Clicking a cart ID provides more details including listing the products in the cart.

Optionally, the plugin can display a cart ID on the frontend, visible to the customer. The admin interface supports searching for carts based on this ID. This allows store support to look up a customer cart if the customer provides their cart ID.

The plugin also calculates some basic cart statistics at Analytics > Carts, with date filtering based on the cart creation date.
