How to integrate MailBluster with WooCommerce: Step-by-step

MailBluster and WooCommerce integration only require a few steps to complete. But before you begin, let’s start with the WordPress installation in the first place. Here we are installing WordPress locally.

Integration of MailBluster with WooCommerce

 

As WooCommerce is a plugin for WordPress, you need to install WordPress locally before installing the plugin.

You can either watch our video tutorial on integrating MailBluster with WooCommerce or follow the blog to do the steps.

Step 1: Installing WordPress locally on Windows

Installing WordPress requires you to work on installing web development software on your device. You can use Xampp or Wampserver to run WordPress locally.

Let’s get to the WordPress Installation now.

1.  We will use Wampserver to install WordPress. First, Install Wampserver on your device. Remember to install Visual C++ packages with the latest versions.

2. Run Wampserver and go to localhost/phpmyadmin in your preferred browser. Log in to the admin panel, use root as your username, and leave the password field blank. Click Login.

Click on Create. Go back to Database.

4. Now, install WordPress on your device. Go to WordPress.org and download the zip file. Extract it and put the WordPress folder into the Wamp64→www folder. Generally, C:/wamp64/www directory. 

Rename the WordPress folder to any of your preferred names, such as testingsite. We will use this name to run the WordPress site. Now, type localhost/testingsite in the address bar of your preferred browser.

Choose your language and click Let’s go. This will allow you to create your Database name and password field.

Type the username as root, leave the Password field blank, and leave the rest of the fields. Click on Submit.

Click on Run the installation on the next screen. Type the Site Title, create Password, provide an Email address, and Install WordPress.

Now login using the Username and Password you created. This will bring you to the WordPress Dashboard. 

Your website is now locally hosted using Wampserver.

Step 3: Integrating MailBluster with WooCommerce using Bit Integrations

Using the Bit Integrations plugin on WordPress, you can easily integrate MailBluster with WooCommerce. You need to set the trigger and action as WooCommerce and MailBluster simultaneously, and later configure the options on what events will trigger the leads. 

Check the steps below.

1. Install the Bit Integrations plugin on your WordPress site. Go to Add New Plugin, search for Bit Integrations, Install it, and Activate it.

2. Now, go to the Bit Integrations plugin and click on Create Integration>Select trigger as WooCommerce>Form/Task Name.

Here, we select Customer-edit. Later, go to the Action section; here, you have to select MailBluster. Later, set the API key obtained from MailBluster by going to Settings>API Keys>Create new>Name your API>Create. 

Now, Copy the API value and paste it in API Token in the MailBluster integration section. Click Authorize and Next.

3. Moving on to the next step, now set the Subscription Type as Subscribed. In the next step, you have to select options from Field Map, select the preferred option that you want to integrate from the Form Fields and MailBluster Fields, and tick the Update Lead once you finish mapping. 

Here, we need the Email and First Name.

Check the Update Lead and click Next. Click Finish and Save in the Next step.

Follow the screenshots.

4. Now, test the integration by logging in to WordPress and going to the store. There, acting as a customer, go to account>edit your password and account details. 

As we have selected Customer-edit earlier in the WooCommerce Trigger section, edit your customer details a bit by changing your First name or Last name and save the information. 

Step 4. Check if the lead is added

Check the Integration Log by going to Bit integrations>Actions>Timeline and check if the lead integration is successful.

Now, go to the MailBluster Leads section and check if the lead is added.

Note: You can select a different Form/Task Name [Product-delete, order-create, order-delete, and more] if you need in the WooCommerce Trigger section.
