Jilt for WooCommerce


Requires: WooCommerce 2.6 or newer

The Jilt abandoned cart recovery app helps your eCommerce store recover lost revenue due to cart abandonment. This plugin connects Jilt to WooCommerce, letting you track when carts are abandoned, then send recovery emails to encourage the customers who abandoned these carts to complete the purchase.

Jilt has already helped merchants recover over $14,000,000 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 WooCommerce 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.

Built for Site Performance

This plugin sends details on all 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 WooCommerce is built by SkyVerge, expert WooCommerce developers who have built over 60 official WooCommerce extensions. Jilt for WooCommerce 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 (paid) is required to recover abandoned carts for your WooCommerce store. You can learn more about Jilt here. You can try Jilt for 14 days for free! Your trial will start as soon as you recover your first abandoned cart.

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 (ie adding more items). At this point, Jilt starts the timers for your recovery emails.

Which customers will be emailed?

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.


Great plugin – simple to use. Great support!

Really great plugin. Simple to install and set up. Support is great.

There are more complicated ones out there for sure, but what I love about this one is that it doesn’t try to overcomplicate things – it just works!

Implemented in 5 min & awesome support

This was such an easy plugin and service to start using. I literally got it up and running in 5 minutes, ended up using their templates as the first try — for a grand total of maybe 15 minutes to set it up and get my first cart recovery email sent! I looked at a lot of other plugins and services and got confused by the process, but Jilt was super easy.

On top of that, they followed up after I set it up and gave me personalized support to make sure I understood everything and even helped me with a few tweaks to improve! Really have enjoyed sharing thoughts and getting their advice so far.

Best of all, we’ve already recovered a cart! 1 out of 12 is pretty good!

Amazing support!

Jilt does what it says it will do, I’ve had a great conversion rate and have recovered lots of orders that I would have either had to email manually due to failed payments or would have never known about due to abandonment. Best support I’ve experienced in a long time! Thanks Jilt.
