Using Exit Surveys to Uncover Why Potential Buyers Aren't Converting


One of the most sought-after targeting options within Qualaroo is the ability to run exit surveys. Exit surveys currently only work on the desktop version of surveys.


Where the Option Is and How It Works

The "exit survey" option is under the "Targeting" section under "When should this survey be displayed?". Select the option "When it looks like the user is about to abandon the page."


Set the targeting


The option only fires the survey when the user approaches the close browser button.


This video walks you through some typical exit survey recipes.





Survey Content


  • What would've convinced you to complete the purchase of the item(s) in your cart?

  • What was your biggest fear or concern about purchasing from us?

  • If you did not make a purchase today, can you tell us why not?

  • Do you have any questions before you complete your purchase?

  • Is there anything preventing you from completing your purchase?


Recommended answer type:


  • Text-Based Answer


  • Single answer selection with the most common hesitation reasons and an "Other" option that leads to a free-form response. We recommend collecting these reasons first as part of your survey iteration process.

Recommended Targeting Options



TIP: If you're investigating cart abandonment, visitors will inevitably bring up the price issue. One trick some customers have found to combat this is to offer free shipping to customers who complete their purchase or a promotional code that will give visitors a discount on their overall purchase.
