FullStory is a webpage capturing system that captures what your customer is doing on your webpage. A particularly useful implementation of this is to track abandoned e-commerce carts so that you can get some insight as to why a visitor didn't complete their purchase.
FullStory captures live website "recordings" in which you can see anything your customers have done on your website. FullStory can also capture things like rage clicks (frustrated customer clicking rapidly on something) and broken links. Check out what FullStory has to offer.
If you want a free solution, Google Analytics or Google Tag Manager also integrate right in with Rocketspark.
How much does FullStory cost?
FullStory has a range of plans. For most Rocketspark customers the free plan will be completely adequate.
