Today we’ve officially released the MailChimp Ecommerce Tracking Plugin! This FREE plugin helps you measure the ROI of your email campaigns. We’ll track when people click from your email campaigns, visit your website, all the way to purchase. Then we’ll aggregate the information and display it on your MailChimp campaign report.
We’ve submitted the plugin to MagentoConnect, so hopefully it will be available there soon. In the meantime more details on the plugin, download links, and manual installation instructions and are here:
This is totally unsolicited, but very honest and genuine customer feedback.
IF YOU ARE NOT USING MAILCHIMP FOR YOUR EMAIL CAMPAIGNS, START NOW.
Yes, Magento can send newsletters from within the admin dashboard.
No, Magento does not gracefully handle list management.
No, Magento does not have great newsletter reporting functionality.
No, Magento does not have a monkey for a mascot.
I’ve used ExactTarget, ConstantContact, and VerticalResponse. MailChimp wins.
I’m getting an error with Magento 1.1.8 that appears to be related to MailChimp. At the payment step, the transaction errors out and Magento sends a “Payment Transaction Failed Reminder” email that includes this note:
Payment transaction failed.
