In Marketing Cloud (SFMC) I used the track code to add cart and purchase.

How can I use the information about the abandoned cart in a Jorney? Do I need to use any event?

I can see in Web analytics that has a number of abandoned carts, but the data extension "PI_ABANDONED_CART_ITEMS" is empty. Is it normal?

Thanks folks. Guilherme Borges

PI_ABANDONED_CART_ITEM is not currently being used by the platform, and will not be populated with data if a cart is being abandoned. You will need to reach out to Salesforce to ask for a daily data dump with SKUs and uuids from abandoned carts. You will need to identify which fields from the catalogue are required in the CSV file, which will be placed on your Enhanced FTP once a day. You will need to build an automation importing these files to a Data Extension, and injecting contacts with abandoned carts into a journey. This is the only way you can link the collect codes with emails.

  • You can see the abandoned carts in web analytics though. Furthermore there is an abandoned cart journey as template. You can also see the current items of a subscriber when you navigate towards reporting inside Predictive web and search for a particular subscriber. You will see which items he has in his cart (even though he might have logged of). Therefore I believe that these informations are stored and can be used if there is an api for it (which I am not sure of). Maybe Lukas can dig a little bit deeper on the Salesforce side of things ;) looking forward to an extend of your post :P – Johannes Schapdick Jun 1 at 20:34

    Currently it requires a service engagement to build an audience file for abandon cart. Abandon cart information is not surfaced anywhere currently that can be actioned outside of this – EazyE Jun 2 at 1:29
