Market research firm Statista reported that the global shopping cart abandonment rate for online retailers in 2020 was 88%.   This is driven by a number of factors, but friction in customer experience plays a big role.  One study pegged that a quarter of people abandoned shopping carts because the checkout process was too complicated. That friction happens sometimes by design and good reasons — such as legitimate efforts to deter bots.  But I think we have to continually evaluate whether ...
