If you like us on Facebook, you probably saw our announcement earlier this week that we’ve redesigned our homepage to make it easier for you to log in to Shopilly or create an account.

Well, that’s not all. Thanks to feedback and insight from users like you, we’ve optimized Shopilly to provide a savvy, clutter-free shopping experience. Today we’re highlighting some of our favorite features, which allow you to explore, discover, organize – and live Shopilly ever after!

Shopilly Checklist
We’ve placed this handy checklist in the Home tab to help you make the most of your Shopilly account. Have you followed your favorite brands to stay updated on their sales and new products or collections? Have you linked your email to de-clutter your inbox of marketing emails and shopping receipts? And – we couldn’t leave this one out – have you invited your friends to join Shopilly?

Visual Organization
Upon logging into Shopilly, you’ll see thumbnails in your Home tab that keep your account organized and make it easy to window shop by category, for example Hot deals, Flash sales and Fashion. Shopilly also tells you how many new emails you have in your inbox and how many new posts you have to catch up on from your favorite brands.

Recent Activity
If you’re curious about what the Shopilly brands have been up to lately, scroll down to the Recent Activity section of your Home tab. This news-like ticker is refreshed every time a brand posts an update.

What’s Popular
If you’ve already followed all of your favorite brands but are looking for a new brand or two to explore, navigate to the Brands tab and click ‘Popular’ to see which brands other Shopilly users favor. You might just discover an exciting new sale or your next favorite store!

A New Way to Window Shop

For me, the phrase “window shopping” conjures up thoughts of snowy sidewalks and the famed holiday window displays of New York City.

Though I’ve never lived in New York, I’ve always loved to window shop, even if these days, my increasingly busy life makes it difficult to actually do so.

Luckily, just as we’re rounding the corner to the holiday season, Shopilly now makes it easy for me to indulge in an exciting new form of window-shopping. Whenever I have a free moment, I find myself going back to the site to browse through my favorite brands.

You can think of Shopilly as your visual inbox for everything shopping-related – great deals from your favorite brands, a history of your past purchases, receipts that you might otherwise easily misplace and – of course – a little virtual window shopping on the side.

Here’s a short guide to getting started on Shopilly:

  1. Sign up for an account. You’ll get to choose your Shopilly email address, which you can…
  2. …give out whenever you are asked for an email address while shopping online or in stores. By doing this, you’ll reduce the clutter in your personal email inbox.
  3. You can also clean up your personal email inbox retroactively – simply let Shopilly automatically import emails from your other accounts into Shopilly, and you’ll see them in your Visual Inbox.
  4. Now that your inboxes are organized, begin shopping with a clean slate. Visit the Shopilly Brands tab to explore brands in categories such as Travel, Home and Beauty, just to name a few. You can bookmark your favorite brands by following them.
  5. Then comes my favorite part of Shopilly – visit the Window Shop tab to view offers from your favorite brands. It’s as if you had a personal shopper bringing sales from your favorite stores right to your door! You can do all of your shopping directly from your Shopilly account, and once you’ve checked out using your Shopilly email address, your purchase(s) will appear in the My Purchases tab.

There you have it – your entire shopping life transformed. But I do worry a bit – is there such a thing as a window shopaholic?
