Recent research by PYMNTS and Elastic Path found that nearly half of shoppers have abandoned their online shopping carts during a potential clothing and accessory or home furnishing purchase in the last year.
Our survey found that 54% of consumers had abandoned a clothing and accessory purchase in the previous 12 months, while 47% had done the same with a home furnishing purchase. The most common reasons consumers offered for their cart abandonment were the cost of delivery and the price of the product.

Among shoppers who abandoned an online clothing and accessory purchase, 38% said it was because the cost of delivery was too steep. Thirty-six percent said they did so because they found the product for a lower price somewhere else.
Shoppers searching for home furnishings were in a similar boat, although their priorities were a bit different: 40% said they found the product cheaper elsewhere, and 37% said delivery costs were too high.
