    This is my journey but i also have a question.

    I have my shopify store up, and im promoting it with a few pages and combined has about 150k followers.

    I have a money/product/business pages and I have a niche page with is about cars.

    yesterday was the first official day of it being up, im pretty happy with the results i had 120 unique visitors just form promoting on instagram,

    Today so far im at about 67 unique visitors. Im on about the same pace yesterday, my whole problems is havent got sales. I have a little over 200 unique visitors in total.

    8 abandoned carts, 3 reached checkout, someone tried to make a purchase but it got declined for failing the zip code verification.

    what does all those abandon carts mean? today i have only 2 abandon carts compared to the 6 yesterday.

    What does an abandon cart usually mean or signify? Is it price? is it lack of interest in the product? Is the web design? is it they dont like the checkout procedure?


    If the price is too much then why even add it to your cart? why would you waste your time if your not interested. The web is very simple and clean looks professional, i have a terms of service, shipping, return, about us, contact pages a couple more i cant think of.

    I have a nice big logo, i dont want to giveaway my site obviously i dont need people stealing ideas,even though it is already a competitive niche.

    I use shopify do the checkout procedure isnt bad or anything.

    I just dont get it, if anyone experience similar results please post, and tell us your solution.

    Also i just purchased 3k mentions, i have a cheap provider. I hope that can generate sales, or atleast some engagement.


    My ultimate goal is to get 1 sale a day, i make a lot of profit from my item so i would be able to live comfortable of 1 sale a day.

    There are always going to be tire kickers so to speak. Without seeing your site and the checkout process it is hard to give you the answers you seek. Somethings to check are the need not to register to order, the option of a express checkout, testimonials on your checkout page, price guarantees, don't hide any hidden fees or charges that will be seen at checkout. If you have their email address let them know that you saved there abandoned if they return to complete their purchase. Speed of your cart is important and making sure there are no errors when using the cart is extremely important.

    How do you put testimonials on your checkout page? I cant use paypal because mine was banned and every stealth i have made had been banned really fast also.

    I know what you're promoting and i'd say it's because not many people is willing to pay $$$ for that certain product.
    They can just buy one from a more trusted site also, so try to get yours really unique, although those designs are pretty unique themselves, offer some more stuff to customers

    I don't think it would matter what payment gateway you have, it should be a setting in shopify.
