Integrating Omnisend to Magento 2
To integrate your Magento 2 website with Omnisend, you will need to:
Once the Omnisend account is created, click the 'Connect your store' button:
You'll be taken to the connection wizard where you'll need to pick Magento among other options:
After you select Magento, you'll need to enter your store URL and click the 'Connect store' button:
That's it! Once we verify the snippet, your store will be connected through the front-end integration. Now you'll need to proceed with Full integration to be able to use all of the Omnisend features.
Benefits of connecting Magento 2 store to Omnisend
Once your store is connected through our snippet, you can start using the following features (on Free, Standard, or Pro plans):
Signup forms: Wheel of Fortune, Popup, Signup Box, and Landing Page;
Automation: Welcome emails, Birthday emails;
Full reports of campaigns, signup forms, and automation;
However, at this point, some of the Standard and Pro features will not be working due to an insufficient level of integration as we're not yet getting all the needed data from your store. A full integration via API will be required to get the full benefit of Omnisend features.
Continuing With Full Integration via Our API - the Benefits
Once you have your store connected to your Omnisend account, you can continue integration through API to get access to the full package of features:
Expanded contact segmentation with enriched data;
other Custom Automation Workflows;
Once you start pushing the required data through the API, all enabled features will start working immediately. Just note, that you will need to add a snippet for some features to work, for example Live View.
Getting started with Omnisend
Here are the resources for you to get started with Omnisend:
Magento 2 module (❗ It's been decided to move our Magento 2 module to open-source on April 1st, 2021)
If you want to use the Omnisend module for Magento 2, you may download this version here, but keep in mind that it's outdated and doesn't support all of the latest Omnisend features. Also, you may run into some bugs that your developer will need to fix. So, we highly recommend using this module just as an example for your developer on how the integration should look like, but build everything yourself to support all the newest features using our API documentation:
Copy files to your Magento 2.x installation directory:
Login via SSH to your Magento directory and run commands:
php bin/magento setup:upgradephp bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy
Login to your Magento backend, go to Omnisend -> Plugin settings and complete connection steps here.
Note! We don't support this plugin anymore. That's why to improve it or fix something, you'll need to ask for developer's help.
