CartDown firstly requests a product page, checks the page for common errors and important missing elements. Then it adds the product to the basket.
Checks the product has been successfully added to the basket. Then it checks the page for missing elements and errors.
Finally looking at the checkout page. Again making sure the product is found and that there are no missing elements or errors. CartDown will halt as soon as something breaks, double check from another server and then alert via SMS and email.
No, it's the equivalent of one visitor every minute.
No technical knowledge needed, no code snippets or modules to install. A CartDown engineer will analyse your store and manually set up and configure the monitor.
No, the monitor has no involvement with the merchant process. The monitor requests the checkout page to analyse it for problems, but doesn't place an order.
CartDown alerts users to downtime, missing elements, SSL issues, blank outputs and errors. We even attach a screenshot of the error in email alerts.
