Calculate the Average Time Between Orders for any Ecommerce Store

Knowing the average time between orders from the same customer is invaluable data to have as it allows you to target repeat purchasers at the appropriate time. You may be wondering how to calculate the average time between orders but never fear; your RFM Calc ecommerce report will not only show you the average time between 1st and 2nd orders, but also 2nd and 3rd orders, 3rd and 4th orders and so on, based on the order data your provide.

For so long, marketeers have simply guessed when to retarget ecommerce customers to drive a repeat purchase; maybe after 7 days, maybe 30 days, maybe 90 days, who knows? But the reality is, when customers are most likely to return for a repeat purchase can vary massively by industry vertical and ecommerce store. With RFM Calc, there's no more guessing; we'll show you exact timeframes of when your customers return for repeat purchases.
