LiveRecover is unique in its operation. The company follows up with all its customers manually. Every customer receives a real-time reply as they help them convert the abandoned cart into a sale. LiveRecover works on behalf of the client, saving them the effort of dealing directly with customers.

Dennis found himself becoming involved in e-commerce much before he started LiveRecover. In 2003, he got sponsored to play Counter-Strike full-time, which introduced him to the e-commerce industry. He later started his apparel brand on MySpace in 2008.

“I had like maybe 9 million followers on Twitter after a couple of years. So, from that, I built up a website that became a viral blog. Within the first 90 days, we did 30 million unique and 250-million-page impressions. We were monetizing through AdSense. From that, then we built up a marketplace, started onboarding influencers and built that into a business. I kind of left eCommerce behind for a bit”, says Dennis Hegstad in an interview with

In 2017, Dennis got back into the e-commerce game after securing a consulting job with Fashion Nova. He soon felt it was time to start his own business with full-time employees. Six months after leaving Fashion Nova, Dennis founded LiveRecover. He began building the company with his co-founder, and today, his efforts and dedication have paid off.

“We’ve been doing that for about a little over two years or two and a half years now. And we have, I think, nine or ten thousand merchants installed in our app at this point. I mean, we’re not actively servicing 10,000 merchants, but that’s how many have come and gone”, says Dennis, speaking of the history of the company.

Dennis Hegstad and his co-founder have created LiveRecover to work on a personal basis, giving the customer a unique experience when interacting with them.
