Configuring the Extension

After installing the extension you will need to configure a few settings. To do so:

  1. Log into your Magento admin console and navigate to System > Configuration > Newsletter.
  2. In the left-side navigation, click on Newsletter under Customers

You will now be able to configure the MailUp Extension Settings 


Here is a description of what the settings are and what they do.

SettingDescription
Admin Console URL

This URL is unique for each MailUp account. It’s the domain portion of the URL shown in your browser address field when you are using your MailUp admin console. It looks like something like g4a0.s03.it or ddbd.emailsp.net.

To locate it, just log into your MailUp account, launch the admin console, and look at the URL in the browser address field.

Account ID

Your MailUp account ID. It's the numeric portion of your MailUp user name.

For example, if your user name is m12260, your account ID is 12260.

API User NameYour MailUp API User Name. To retrieve your MailUp API user name and password, log into your MailUp admin console and navigate to Manage > Web Services
API PasswordYour MailUp API Password. Same as above.
ListThe List within your MailUp account that you wish Customers to be subscribed to, by default.

Notes & Limitations

Date format

The date format used in the data that is exported to MailUp (E.g. order date) is always dd/mm/yyyy.

Limitation: no subscription checkbox during checkout

Currently - as of November 2012 - the default Magento checkout system does not include a way for the customer to sign up for the store newsletter. Since that preference is used in the integration with MailUp to indicate to MailUp whether or not the customer is a subscriber (i.e. whether or not it should be automatically subscribed in MailUp), this creates a problem: most customers will not subscribe and will therefore not be visible in MailUp.

Limitation: multiple stores

Currently - as of November 2012 - there is a limitation with regard to supporting multiple Magento-powered stores with the same MailUp account. Since recipients fields are shared across Lists within a single MailUp account, order data from different stores would flow into the same fields, with one store potentially overwriting the values transferred from another store. Specifically, if the same customer placed an order on the first store, and then an order on the second store, the data from the second store would overwrite the order data transferred from the first store, even if different Lists are associated with the two stores, because the fields are shared between the two Lists.
