For Katie Keith, cofounder of Barn2 Media, finding Jilt was like finding free money. As one of the UK’s leading WordPress and WooCommerce developers, Katie, who runs Barn2 with her husband Andy, was familiar with the challenges faced by eCommerce companies. But it wasn’t until they started selling their own premium WordPress plugins in March 2016 that they began to experience those issues firsthand. “After designing WooCommerce websites for clients for years, I was already […]
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 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 […]
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 […]
Think about an experience where you were shopping on an online store. You picked some items you liked and added them to your cart. You left before completing your purchase. If you receive a cart abandonment email from the company after some time that takes you back to their store, how convenient is it if you picked up your shopping cart exactly how you left it.

Email is one of the best ways for eCommerce store owners to get actions from customers. Email personalizations help improve engagement because the message and products are catered and targeted to an individual. Personalizations create more value for a customer than a generic marketing blast. In this post, we’ll take a look at personalizing when it comes to the subject line, segmented emails, and follow up emails.
Lifecycle emails are effective for engaging customers and creating a personalized experience. These specific emails can help build customer relationships that lead to higher open and transaction rates. Plus, they tend to give your business opportunities for email personalization based on products purchased or other store interactions.
Cart abandonment is a significant challenge for online retailers. A Baymard Institute study reports that 68.8% is the average abandonment rate. Every day, potential customers visit your store and decide not to purchase. Ignoring or moving this issue to the bottom of your to-do list won’t fix the situation. Your team can investigate the underlying cause of the abandonment and develop recovery emails to draw consumers back to your site.
We’ve pushed an app update this week that we think you’ll love! Jilt can now help you personalize subject lines in your recovery emails using customer or cart information. You can now use the same merge tags you’ve been using in email content to insert customer names, product titles, or other cart data in your subject lines.
