What does this exactly mean?
Aimeos carts are session based until they are ordered, which persists the cart in the database.

Bit of definition, copying and pasting from some site

“Abandonment is an ecommerce term used to describe a visitor on a web page who leaves that page before completing the desired action. Examples of abandonment include shopping cart abandonment, referring to visitors who add items to their online shopping cart, but exit without completing the purchase.”

It can be a great help in following up with those visitors via email to regain their business.

Thanks

If you change the session handling with something that persists the carts permanently (e.g. in the database), you can have a look at the abandoned carts.

This is the customer's watch list if products change prices or get back in stock - similar to the customers' favorites (wish list) but with e-mail notification. It won't be the same as the abandoned carts.

Can we use a simple pop-up light box (offering a discount via email optin), when user closes the browser tab or session is over before the order came through.

Is the are a way for us to know about failed orders and abandoned order in the dashboard?

Thanks

Not yet. You would have to retrieve the persisted but timed out cart sessions and list them in the dashboard yourself.
We are open for contributions if you do so :-)
