Program extensions: Magento


This program extension is only available for Magento 1.x.

This article assumes you've read Enable a program extension. It also assumes you have an active account with Magento. If you don't have one, you'll need to sign up for one before you can create a profile for this extension.


A Magento extension can be used in programs to create subscribers when they reach the node. 

Initial setup

You'll need to ask our account team to enable this provider for you within your account. They'll notify you when this has been done.

You'll then need to create a profile for it, at which point you'll be ready to use the Magento extension within the program builder.

It will appear under Extensions in the side panel to the left of the program canvas.

Creating a Magento profile

You can create a Magento profile in the Extension profiles tab in the Access area, which is accessed by selecting Access from the settings menu.


Click on Add to produce the provider type drop-down, select Magento from the list and then click OK. 


Add details/authentication for the new Magento profile.

You can select a box to limit the rate that requests are made by the profile, as some providers won't allow too many requests to be sent at once by the same profile.


When done, click Next.

Configuring your Magento extension

Once you've dragged and dropped your Magento extension into your program, you'll need to configure it.

Click on the node and the configuration panel will slide in from the right.

Select the profile you wish to use for this action from the Profile drop-down (or you can click the + to add another profile).

The action Add subscriber is already set.


Remember: it's always your responsibility to ensure you're supplying good, executable data, or your extension call could fail. 

Once a program is activated and a contact reaches this node in your program, the contact will become subscribed within your Magento account. 

Once happy with your configuration, you should firstly test the extension to ensure it works as expected. Click on Find contact, choose a contact from your Test address book and then click Submit to make a test request. The full response will be provided underneath, allowing you to see whether the extension is working or not.

After testing successfully, click Apply.
