Spring is officially here (at least in the Northern Hemisphere where most of the Jilt team lives) and Jilt continues to sprout new features. Since our last update, we’ve made a number of improvements to Jilt that will make things easier for shops with multiple managers or those that contract with outside developers, and released v1.3 of Jilt for Easy Digital Downloads. But what we’re most excited about is what we’re working on next… Request […]

Early email capture, simple signup, outbound email preview, and more

You know the stats. 70 percent of online shopping carts are abandoned before purchase, and by using an eCommerce email marketing tool like Jilt, you can recover some of that revenue. But here’s the rub: only a portion of those abandoned carts are recoverable. If you haven’t collected an email address from the customer, Jilt can’t send recovery emails.

Automatic invoices, brand settings, Jilt for EDD v1.2, and more

We organize our work at Jilt into six week cycles with two week buffers. Planning this way helps us prioritize and make sure we’re able to consistently deliver new features and updates. You’ll see the proof of that in updates like this one every few weeks. (Curious to learn more about this process? We based it on how Basecamp organizes their work.) We’re in the middle of our current cycle, and we’ve got a few […]

How Barn2 Media Recovered $3,000 in Lost Sales with Jilt

For Katie Keith, cofounder of Barn2 Media, finding Jilt was like finding free money.
