Using PieSync to integrate an app with SendinBlue

PieSync_logo.png

 

Overview

PieSync integrates SendinBlue with other apps for an automatic 2-way contacts sync. Every time you add or update a contact in SendinBlue, it is automatically synced with the other app, and vice versa - eliminating import/export!

PieSync is easy to use and helps you build your business by increasing productivity. The two-way contact integration will decrease data errors and ensure that you and your team will have access to the most up to date customer information.

Before getting started

You will need to gather the following information:

  • SendinBlue account credentials. If you don't have one, sign up for free.
  • SendinBlue API v3 key following the instructions here.
  • PieSync account credentials. If you don't have one, register on PieSync for a free 14-day trial.

Map contact attribute data

Next, you will custom map your attributes (e.g. Name, First Name, etc.). Keep in mind that the types of attribute fields need to be compatible. For example, a text field cannot be mapped with a date field.

In our example with Google Contacts, there are two fields that are mapped by default:

  • Google Contacts Emails field with SendinBlue EMAIL field
  • Google Contacts Phones (mobile) field with SendinBlue SMS field

Click on +Add field mapping to add fields that are not in the default field mapping.
