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 […]

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 […]

Account management improvements and prepayment options

Before the Jilt team takes some time over the holidays for a bit of R&R, we made a couple account management updates this week. Read on for full details and we’ll see you in 2018 with many more exciting updates and new features planned. Happy holidays! Account usage estimates When we moved to usage-based billing, Jilt started to send emails with estimated usage for the month, so you’d know what to expect on your bill. […]

New email editor, Jilt Rewards, and more

The holiday shopping season is in full swing, and your busy time is our busy time. Over Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Jilt sent over 120,000 emails that helped stores recover almost half a million dollars! It was intense, but this update isn’t just about telling you how hard our servers worked over BFCM. In addition to helping shops rescue thousands of dollars, we’ve also made some big changes to Jilt that we’re pretty excited […]

New branding, new pricing, and tons of improvements

Same Jilt, Fresh Look

AKA, the update in which we have a massive list of new stuff bigsmile We’re hard at work making improvements to Jilt every day, from minor enhancements to major new features, so we have a lot to share in this month’s update. And by this month, I mean really the last 2 months. Hey, we’ve been busy! Here are some of the things we’ve rolled out since our last update. TL;DR: we’ve got a new […]

Now send emails from your own domain, and other improvements

Read on for details on all the latest updates to be added to Jilt. New Features Send Emails From Your Own Domain You can now securely send campaign emails from your own domain rather than Jilt’s default @jiltmail.com. Enabling this provides a […]

Dynamic discounts for Shopify, Intercom everywhere

Scheduling

Dynamic discounts for Shopify Thanks to Shopify opening up their formerly Plus-only “Discounts” API, Jilt now fully supports dynamic discounts for Shopify merchants. With this feature you can setup a discount that: provides free shipping, a percentage off, or a fixed amount off an order and optionally expires after a certain amount of time, and/or has a minimum price requirement.

Cancel or send a scheduled email, and other fixes

Cancel or send a scheduled email By popular demand, you can now cancel a scheduled email or send an email “now” that was scheduled to be sent at a future date. The “cancel” action is useful for those times when perhaps you’ve started a conversation with a customer and want to skip the remaining emails for a more personal touch. Perhaps your customer replied to your first recovery email with a question, and now you’re […]

Add Unique Discount Codes to Your Recovery Emails

Strategically incorporating discount codes in your recovery emails is a powerful way to drive purchases that would otherwise remain abandoned. This is why we’ve previously written about the benefits of including discounts in recovery emails, as well as when to include discounts in recovery emails. Up until now adding a discount to your Jilt recovery emails required one to create a single code that could very easily get shared over social media, leading to a lot […]
