Learn how to sync your Shopware subscribers and customers to your address books.
Once you've successfully installed the Shopware connector, you can start synchronising your existing subscribers and customers to address books.
Before you start
Things you need to know:
- Check out The Shopware 6 integration checklist to help track your progress.
Send campaigns only to subscribersSome of your customers might not have opted in to your marketing messages when they bought a product from your store.
To conform to international email spam laws and best email marketing practice, and to maintain a good sending reputation, make sure that you send campaigns only to the Store subscribers address book. These are the contacts whom you have permission to send marketing campaigns to.
Customers and subscribersThe system prevents you from being able to sync customers and subscribers to the same address book, ensuring that they always remain separate.
To access your subscriber and customer contact settings:
- In Dotdigital, go to Settings (⋮) > Shopware.
If you don't see this option, go to Integration hub > Active, then select the Shopware tile.
- Go to the heading Contacts.
