Integrate ActiveTrail with WooCommerce

WooCommerce is an open-source code based customizable sales platform built as a WordPress plugin. It enhances your WordPress site’s activity and allows it to function as an e-commerce shop.

With the help of the following guide, you will learn how to connect your WooCommerce store to the ActiveTrail system.

Here’s what you’ll need to connect your store:

  • An active ActiveTrail account
  • A WooCommerce plugin installed on your WordPress site

Connecting your WordPress store with the WooCommerce plugin to ActiveTrail requires installing additional plugins: The first enables the connection and the other upgrades the connection and adds Webhooks so the ActiveTrail system can recognize cart abandonment.

“Store URL” – the web address of your online store.

6. Make sure you downloaded plugin 1 and plugin 2 mentioned at the beginning of this guide.

7. Note: managing email verification in WooCommerce is performed by a third plugin. This requirement comes directly from WooCommerce, and you can not meet it without using one of the following two plugins: 

First Option – a Free Plugin

Click on this link and download the plugin. This is a free plugin that enables a separate creation of a consent form, meaning – your contact would be asked to sign-up once more (on top of opening their store account or purchasing at your store). 

 

Second Option – a Paid Plugin

Click here to download the paid plugin, which will allow you to enjoy the following features: 

  • A mailing list sign-up consent checkbox (meaning, your contacts will go through one process for both purchasing and signing-up to your mailing list)
  • An automatically-added mailing list sign-up consent checkbox to your store’s sign-up form
  • Creation of a separated mailing list consent form (equal to the free plugin) 

The installation process for this plugin:

  1. Following the installation of the plugin, go to Woocommerce > Settings > Newsletter
  2. A screen will pop up. Fill in it an API token from your ActiveTrail Account (which needs to be synchronized)  
  3. Choose the group to which your contacts would be synchronized.
  4. Very important! Select the status of the orders you wish to sync (our advice is to choose the following: “pending payment,” “processing,” “on hold,” and “completed”) 

8. Select the ZIP file you downloaded here and install both plugins to the system.

9. Next, go back to the plugin screen (the first screen) >> choose the first plugin and click ‘settings’ >> then copy the “Unique Key”.

10. Finally, paste Unique Key to the ActiveTrail integration settings, as described above

That’s it. You now have access to all of ActiveTrail’s advanced e-commerce features, allowing you to build automation based on actions taken in your store, such as: recovering abandoned carts, post-purchase emails, re-engaging inactive customers and more…

*Email delivery permissions should be managed separately or with an additional plugin.
