Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can I still send abandoned cart recovery emails while being GDPR compliant?
A: Yes, abandoned cart emails are sent on the basis of legitimate interest, which is the most flexible lawful basis for processing data but also the most open to interpretation. It’s important to follow our recovery email best practices and limit your sending to only recent abandonments with a series of 3 emails. Sending dozens of emails over a long period of time after a cart abandonment would be significantly more challenging to qualify.
