⚠️ Due to the recent announcement from the Magento v1 side about discontinuing this platform development, Omnisend is also freezing its module development.

What does it mean for existing users?

If you are using Omnisend for your Magneto v1 store, you won't experience any changes in the module performance. Any improvements to the Omnisend application that do not require changes to the data flow between Omnisend and Magento will be available to you. Only the integration part won't be improved and developed further.

If you wish to get the latest features of Omnisend, we recommend improving your integration using our API documentation or considering possible migration to Magento v.2 or other platforms.

What should you do to start using Omnisend for Magento 1?

If you want to use the Omnisend module for Magento 1, you may download this version here, but keep in mind that it's outdated and doesn't support all of the latest Omnisend features.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:

In your Magento 1 admin, proceed to System -> Magento Connect -> Magento Connect Manager and install your Omnisend module there.

Integration process

1. First, create an API key by going to Store settings in your Profile menu -> Integrations & API -> API key -> click Create API key.

Keep all the permission settings checked:

Note: your contacts will be sent to All contacts list, and for all newly added and updated contacts via Magento, we will add a tag "source: magento". That way, you will be able to create a segment and filter the list of contacts that were added from Magento. Just create a segment based on the Profile data where the tag is "source: magento".

Learn more about segments here.

2. Click Save and copy the generated API key.

3. Find the Omnisend module in your Magento store, paste the code, and hit Save. Omnisend will start synchronizing with your store soon. You can refresh the page of the Omnisend module to check the latest synchronization statistics.

The synchronization requires a Magento Cron to be correctly configured on your store's server. You should contact the developer of your online store and ask whether the Cron is present. 

If not, then you can manually initiate an alternative synchronization by clicking the link in the Synchronization message.

Important: once you manually initiate an alternative synchronization, DO NOT CLOSE the window until it is complete. If you accidentally close the window, you'll need to reopen it, and the sync will be resumed automatically.
