There are three ways to integrate Shopify with ActiveCampaign:
- Direct integration - The direct integration places a checkbox on order forms allowing customers to opt-in to your list during checkout.
- Zapier integration - The Zapier integration allows you to pass contacts into ActiveCampaign. The Zapier integration may be the better option if you'd like all your customers to be added as contacts.
- Revenue Conduit - The Revenue Conduit integration passes a lot of data into ActiveCampaign and includes sophisticated marketing automation sequences for ecommerce stores. Their pricing starts at $49.95 a month.
Setting up the direct integration:
Visit this link to the ActiveCampaign app.
Click the “Get” button:
Enter your Shopify URL into the field and click Log in:
Enter your ActiveCampaign account URL when prompted then click “Next.” Your account URL should be something like: http://companyname.activehosted.com
Click “Install App:”
Now log into your ActiveCampaign account.
Click your avatar in the upper right-hand corner of the screen:
Click Apps in the dropdown menu that appears.
In the searchbox, type Shopify and press Enter. Click the listing that says “Shopify.”
On the app listing you'll see fields to enter your Shopify store URL and select the list(s) you want to add contacts to when they opt in during checkout. Click “Update” to save your settings. You'll see a confirmation message that ActiveCampaign is connected with your Shopify account.
Setting up the Zapier integration:
To connect your Shopify account to ActiveCampaign with Zapier, you will need an active Shopify account and an active storefront.
Click here to use the "Add New Shopify Customers to ActiveCampaign" shared Zap.
To connect a new Shopify account, enter your Shopify username on the connect screen of your Zapier account.
Login to your account, and choose Install Zapier on the next screen.
Choose your ActiveCampaign account from the list of accounts, or connect a new account. To allow access to a new ActiveCampaign account, you will need to find your API URL from your ActiveCampaign account, found in the API tab, under “My Settings” and then the "Developer" section.
Transfer this information to the pop-up window under the corresponding fields.
Choose the ActiveCampaign list to add your new contact to. The Zap defaults to using the Shopify Email field for the address. If you would like to modify this, you can choose fields from the Shopify drop-down under Email Address.
Click Save + Finish.
Your new Shopify customers will be added to your ActiveCampaign account automatically. If you ever want to change this Shopify and ActiveCampaign integration, just go to your Zapier dashboard.
