You can automatically fetch most of these fields using variables.

If you notice, there are multiple variables in brackets like {{productname}} and {{price}}. You can use these, later on, to define parameters for your code snippet. These fields will help you personalize your push notifications. For instance, {{bigimageurl}} fetches the product image automatically based on what product was abandoned.

As with any push notification, you can customize everything about the content here.

You can also add checkout buttons:

Or, you can add a custom notification duration:

When you’re done, go to the Trigger Settings tab to activate your campaign. By default, our Shopify app will add any integration code you need to launch your Shopify abandoned cart campaign.

How to Create Personalized Cart Abandonment Campaigns

You can create personalized cart abandonment campaigns using custom attributes.

This means that you can hook up PushEngage with your Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software to fetch personal details for each customer. By default, PushEngage captures the device and geolocation information for each customer. But you can extend the range of personalization using the PushEngage Attributes API.

You can create custom abandoned cart push notifications with the user’s name like this one:
