A little bit of context my boss has asked to look into why abandon cart rate is so high.I’m not a Ux designer so I’m a little overwhelmed with where to start. What is the best way to tackle this problem. I was also thinking of using user zoom or remote testing solution to get qualitative data. Any help is appreciated

  3. Complicated checkout process.

Those are just some reasons, I found some more resources that might help you out:
