Jilt for WooCommerce


Requires: WooCommerce 3.0 or newer

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

A complete abandoned cart solution

Jilt’s abandoned cart recovery solution helps your eCommerce store recover lost revenue due to cart abandonment. Jilt tracks when carts are abandoned on your store, then lets you send recovery emails to encourage the customers who abandoned these carts to complete the purchase.

Jilt has already helped merchants generate over $36,000,000 in additional 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.

Customize beautiful emails in minutes

Jilt lets you send one or more emails automatically when events happen in your store. You can set up as many emails within a campaign as you’d like (e.g., send 3 recovery emails per abandoned cart, or a series of 4 emails in a welcome campaign).

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. Build a complete set of lifecycle emails to communicate with customers from their first browsing experience through to repeat purchases.

Jilt’s visual email builder helps you create emails that reflect your brand, and each campaign includes relevant starter content to get your emails up and running as soon as possible.

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.

You can also follow up over the long run. Win back inactive customers with replenishment and win-back email campaigns to increase lifetime value.

Built for site performance

This plugin sends details on all orders and abandoned carts to Jilt 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 revenue from your emails, while your site stays speedy and doesn’t get bogged down with tons of abandoned cart or email tracking data.

Jilt for WooCommerce is built by SkyVerge, expert WooCommerce developers who have built over 50 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.

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 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?

Most post-purchase emails are triggered upon 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. However, this can be customized to suit your needs.

Can I include unique coupon codes in my emails?

Yep! Jilt can automatically create unique coupon codes and include them in your automated emails. This gives you a proven and powerful means of increasing conversion rates and generating more orders!


Great product!

Even if it gets you one lost sale, it is completely worth it. Recovered money is amazing! Go Jilt!
