We have recovered more than $150 million dollars in revenue for our customers through abandoned cart and winback campaigns. Recapture provides you with meaningful insight into your brand’s SMS performance with simple-to-read but insightful analytics, which helps optimize your campaigns.
The Recapture plugin takes only 5 minutes to set up and is compatible with Shopify, WooCommerce, BigCommerce, Magento, and many other ecommerce platforms.

With Recapture, you can have meaningful analytics delivered to you through email reports. You can also keep a tab on your brand’s cart activity in real-time and make use of the data to strategize better.

Creating emails is painless with a drag-and-drop editor, and our pop-up library gives you quick, customizable choices to set up pop-ups that match your site without a lot of fuss.
