Jilt for Easy Digital Downloads


Jilt is built from the ground up to help your store increase sales. This plugin connects Jilt to Easy Digital Downloads to bring powerful, automated lifecycle emails to your store.

A complete abandoned cart solution

Jilt abandoned cart recovery solution helps your eCommerce store recover lost revenue due to cart abandonment. This plugin will track when carts are abandoned on your store and send that data to Jilt. You can then send recovery emails to encourage the customers who abandoned these carts to complete the purchase.

Jilt has already helped merchants recover over $25,000,000 in lost revenue! You can set up as many campaigns and recovery emails as you’d like, and customize the text and design of every email sent.

Track abandoned carts

Jilt will track all abandoned carts in your EDD store, capturing email addresses for customers where possible. This lets you see how many customers enter your purchasing flow, but then leave without completing the order.

You can then send recovery emails to these customers to encourage them to complete their purchases, recovering revenue that would otherwise be lost to your store.

Recover lost revenue

Once Jilt tracks an abandoned cart, you can use your campaigns and recovery emails to save this lost revenue. A campaign is a collection of recovery emails that can be sent after the cart is abandoned. You can set up as many emails within a campaign as you’d like (e.g., send 3 recovery emails per abandoned cart).

You can also set up as many campaigns as you want – create a dedicated series of recovery emails for holidays, sales, or other company events.

Send automated post-purchase follow ups

Jilt’s post-purchase follow up emails help you increase repeat sales. You’ve worked hard to gain new customers, so make the most of them! Send automated post-purchase emails once orders are completed to encourage leaving a review, providing feedback, or purchasing again.

Built for site performance

This plugin sends details on all orders and abandoned carts to the Jilt app rather than storing them in your site’s database. This ensures that you can track data over time and get valuable insights into cart abandonment and recovery, while your site stays speedy and doesn’t get bogged down with tons of abandoned cart data.

Jilt for Easy Digital Downloads is built and jointly maintained by SkyVerge, expert eCommerce developers, and the Easy Digital Downloads team. Jilt for EDD is great for merchants small and large alike, and is built to scale as large as your store can.

Do I need anything else to use this plugin?

Yes, a Jilt account (free) is required to recover abandoned carts for your Easy Digital Downloads store. You can learn more about Jilt here.

When is a cart “abandoned”?

A cart is considered abandoned if a customer has added items to the cart, but has not checked out or shown any cart activity for at least 15 minutes (i.e. adding more items). At this point, Jilt starts the timers for your recovery emails.

Which customers will be emailed for abandoned carts?

Any logged in customer who abandons a cart will receive recovery emails from Jilt. Any guest customer who has entered a full, valid email address in the checkout process will also be sent recovery emails.

When will post-purchase emails be sent?

The post purchase trigger is for order completion, as this tells us your store is “done” with the order. Once an order is marked “completed”, Jilt will schedule post-purchase emails on the schedule you’ve configured in your campaign.

Can I include unique discount codes in my recovery emails?

Yes! Jilt can automatically create unique discount codes and include them in your recovery emails. This gives you a proven and powerful means of increasing conversion rates and recovering more orders!


A must to have Product for eCommerce sites

I have been using JILT for last 6 months and really impressed with the product. It helps in generating the lost revenue which I was not taking care of from last few years.

I regret why I was not using JILT before.

keep up the good work guys!

Outstanding product & support!

We started using Jilt on our website (WPZOOM) a few months ago, and the results are making a big difference!

Jilt helped us recover a lot of abandoned orders and it’s worth every penny!

The team behind this product is also very helpful and responsive every time I contact them, and sometimes they even offer us useful advices for free.

Great plugin / service

I have only used it a few short days, but I am already seeing the value in it. The support staff are extremely supportive and helpful. And fast to respond too!

Slightly painful setup but stellar support

I’ve been setting this up for EDD, had an initial issue after I restored my site from Vaultpress, then with images not showing up in the emails. Really exceptional support though, well explained emails, no tedious ticket system and a solution to both issues. Too early to tell how the cart recovery it will benefit me, but a refreshing support experience. Bernie

Great functionality, easy to use

Easy to use and implement.
A must in any webshop site.
The way pricing works is the perfect approach, use it for free, and when you start seeing that it recover sales, start to pay.
