  • In real life, walking away from a purchase mid-stream is uncommon. Online, it's a different story. It's all too easy to abandon a digital shopping cart or click away from a half-complete payment form.

    The freedom to abandon a purchase is a convenience for customers, but a frustration for merchants looking to close a sale.

    At JotForm, our primary mission is to help our users create and embed forms - including payment forms - on their websites. Additionally, we want to help our users understand what keeps their customers from completing purchases, so we turned to our data. Every time a potential customer loads a payment form on one of our user’s websites, it’s tracked. That information, plus the number of payments submitted, is used to calculate conversion rate - basically, how often a user follows through with a purchase. 

    Read on to learn what factors influenced conversion rates from our data and analysis.
