Thanks for the info, Tyson.
I think I did find a way through your Fat Free shopping cart. Although I think, as is posted on another thread that I read, some of us are still confused about the difference between the standard e-Junkie account and Fat Free shopping cart in terms of pricing and features!
As to your question re: page abandonment and email addresses, there is of course no way to know for sure what a customer starts to make a purchase and then stops, but my web stats do show where buyers go when they leave the site, and often, they make it as far as ejunkie but don't complete the transaction. Since as I previously had it set up, a big (and kinda scary) request for personal information came up when they left my site to check out, it's a reasonable marketing conclusion that buyers didn't want to give their personal information and so changed their mind. Again, no way to know for sure, but when it comes to ecommerce, that's a pretty good guess -- which is why I want to test what happens if they don't have to enter that info (for me -- I know PayPal will still require it, but PayPal is a trusted brand name and I alas am not... yet.)
I hope that makes sense and answers your question! Thanks for all you guys do. :-)
