In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to use integration to sync contacts to Sendinblue. This can be helpful if you want to automate data flow between 2 systems.
Enabling Contact Sync
Enable the contact sync feature by toggling the switch in your integration settings.
Then, use the dropdown menu to choose a list where all newsletter subscribers should be added. A default list is created by default, but you can choose any list in your Sendinblue account.
- The integration allows one-way sync from your store to Sendinblue. Changes made in Sendinblue, won't be synced to your store with one exception. The subscription/unsubscription status сan be synced to your store if it is enabled under Additional features.
- "Newsletter recipients" are synced to Sendinblue. Contacts and users in your store can be considered as newsletter recipients.
- Once the settings are saved, an initial sync will run. All changes made after initial sync are pushed to Sendinblue automatically in the background.
Sync contact status
By enabling this feature you ensure that if the status of newsletter recipient is updated on the Sendinblue side, the change is reflected in your store as well.
Automatically assign attributes
When enabled, contact attributes from your store will automatically be mapped to attributes on Sendinblue. You can also disable this feature and manually map attributes.
Manually assign attributes
To manually assign attributes you would:
Untick 'Autoassign' store contacts attributes to Sendinblue contact attributes'.
Click Mapping data.
Then you will be redirected to the mapping table that looks like this:
Here you can choose what attributes you want to import and map them to one existing in Sendinblue by clicking on dropdown next to attribute you want to sync. The dropdown menu will show the list of Sendinblue contact attributes.
For example, I want to import Customer firstname so in the dropdown menu, I selected FIRSTNAME - text.
When you are happy with the mapping, click Save.
Then click Save on the Settings page to complete setup.
