Jilt for Easy Digital Downloads

Recover abandoned carts and lost revenue in your Easy Digital Downloads store by connecting it to Jilt, the abandoned cart recovery app.

The Jilt abandoned cart recovery app helps your eCommerce store recover lost revenue due to cart abandonment. This plugin connects Jilt to Easy Digital Downloads, 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 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.

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 EDD is built and maintained jointly by SkyVerge 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 (paid) is required to recover abandoned carts for your Easy Digital Downloads 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 (i.e. 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.
