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 […]
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 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 […]
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 […]

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. […]
Since our last update, we’ve been working away on a variety of features and improvements, including the ability to send emails from your own domain, and some improvements to the Shopify onboarding experience. 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 […]
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 […]
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.
