Brand settings in your emails and Jilt for WooCommerce 1.5

The crazy heat dome currently parked over most of North America means the majority of the Jilt team is stuck indoors–and that’s good news for you! It means more time working on Jilt and making it even more powerful and easy to use. We have some big updates coming in a few weeks, but here are some of the things we’ve rolled out recently.

Segmentation: a new way to deliver personalized eCommerce emails

We built Jilt with a simple goal: provide shop owners with the easiest and most effective way to communicate with their customers and increase revenue. Jilt started by offering the most comprehensive abandoned cart recovery tool, and we’ve helped merchants earn over $28,000,000 in extra revenue. A couple of months ago, we added post purchase follow up emails to Jilt, providing shop owners a whole new way to connect with their customers. Today, we’re excited […]

How (and why) we spent $60,000 on a remote team retreat

Jilt is a fully distributed team. We inhabit all corners of the globe from Canada to South Africa, from the East Coast of the U.S. to the West, from Europe to Asia. Our twenty team members hail from six different countries on four different continents, so most of the year, we only experience each other via virtual communication tools like Slack and Zoom. But real, live, in-person face time is important for remote teams. It […]

GDPR: How Jilt is complying and helping our users comply

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the European Union’s new online privacy and data protection regulation has far-reaching effects. If you collect any information from any user in Europe, you’re subject to the GDPR. At Jilt, we take your privacy and data rights seriously, so we’ve worked hard to make sure that we’re in full compliance with the regulation and taken steps to make it easier for our users—shop owners, managers, and consultants—to comply. Below […]

Simple signup on EDD, shop managers, and a sneak peak at product recommendations

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. That’s why we’ve introduced a new feature that helps you collect email addresses from more of […]

We’re partnering with Liquid Web

We’re excited to be partnering with Liquid Web, one of the world’s most trusted and reliable web hosts, to bring Jilt email automation to all of their Managed WooCommerce Hosting customers. Store owners on Liquid Web’s Managed WooCommerce plans will get white-glove treatment and have their Jilt account already verified and ready-to-go to start recovering revenue using abandon cart and follow-up 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 […]

Post purchase follow ups, test mode, and more

The Jilt team took some time to rest and recharge over the holidays, and now we’re back and pushing full steam ahead to make Jilt even more useful for you in 2018. First out of the gate, we have a bunch of big additions to the app this week, including post purchase follow ups, test mode, and an enhanced abandoned orders view. We’ve been teasing the idea that Jilt would begin doing more than recover […]
