ebizmarts - MageMonkey - Official MailChimp and Mandrill Extension
I installed it, and got the admin error when trying to login the backend.
"Mage registry key "_singleton/monkey/observer" already exists".
Yes, I have searched the internets... The Dev and users all write to log-out and back in again... But well, it's kind of part of the problem that I can not log in the backend.. so how should I log out?
This is NOT a solution when you cannot login anymore.
Disabling the compiler in config.php didn't work either.
Trashing Cash and session will not work in my case..
So after deleting this plugin, and updating a completely different plugin, I finally got back in to my backend... ONLY REMOVING the mail plugin will NOT work... you need to update a different plugin, and check the box "Clear all sessions after successfull install or upgrade: "
Otherwise you wont get back in again..
So: I am not saying this extension is bad or does not work... But after reading a lot of topics, every user with my problem get the advise to log out and in again... We can't do anything with this Tip, because we are not logged in, and we cant login anymore...
I do a lot of simple easy magento building, and have seen these kind of problems before... Indeed usually these problems are solved with disabling the compiler or trashing cash/sessions... I have fixed many issues this way. But in your care with this mail plugin it will not work.
I tried 3 different magento installs, and always get the same problem.
If we can think of another solution pleas feel free to post... I still wan to use this plugin.

Developer Support A++
I have been wanting to use an Abandoned Cart module for a while but I needed to exclude certain customer groups from those emails. I contacted other companies with paid Abandoned Cart modules and they wanted a lot of extra money to customize the app. I contacted EbizMarts to see if this was possible and they emailed me the next week and said I could download the newest version with control for customer groups! Free! That is awesome.

Slows ouir site dramatically!
This extension works ok but we have had to disable it because it hogs all resources while it is communicating with mailchimp and makes the website virtually unusable during that time.

As always, great extensions! Good code, works well, constantly updated, and probably the best support you can find on Magento's plateform. Thanks a lot!

Does exactly what I need, great support
I had a problem getting this to work (my own fault). Support was quick and helpful and guided me to a solution.
Now it's working perfectly to sync my magento and mailchimp contacts.

Awesome Integration / Fantastic Support
I'm a MailChimp Expert and I have lots of clients needing to integrate Magento with MailChimp.
I always recommend MageMonkey because of the great feature set. Recently, I need support and am happy to report that it's stellar, as well.
I highly recommend this integration!

I was having major problems installing this Extension so I posted on the Support Forum. The Support replied within 24 hours and when the issue appeared more complicated than they could sort through the Forum, I go an email assuring me they were looking after it. They then took my access details and not only quickly identified the problem but also installed the Extension for me too! Brilliant free support. Oh and the Extension works perfectly too. ;)
Thanks again Luis!

Great extension from eBizMarts yet again
Had a couple of problems with the install due to a conflict with SMTP Pro but the team quickly and diligently assisted in determining the cause and implementing the fix.
My client is very happy with how the module works and I'll be installing this on quite a few more client sites.
Once again, top notch support and communication from all the guys at eBizMarts.

A most useful extension
Having the newsletter lists synchronized between Magento and MailChimp makes working with campaigns so much easier.
Feeding eCommerce360 data directly from Magento, with purchase orderr histroy, makes MC campaigns more targeted and profitable.
I have not yet set up the abandoned cart and Mandrill yet, but they will be my next step.
The support is superb.
Thank you Luis and Ignacio.
Keep up the good work!
