How to Install the Mailjet PrestaShop Module
How to Install¶
To get the our PrestaShop module for free, please first visit Mailjet’s PrestaShop GitHub repository and download the
mailjet.zipfile from the latest release.
Log into the PrestaShop Admin. From the main menu, under ‘Improve’ click on ‘Modules’ → ‘Modules & Services’.
At the top of the displayed section, click on ‘Upload a Module’.
A pop-in window will appear. Drag and drop the zipped Mailjet module into it, or click on ‘Select file’ to browse and select it. Once you do this, the installation will automatically start.
Once the module is successfully installed, you will see a confirmation message.
How to Connect Module to Mailjet Account¶
After the installation has been successfully completed, in the confirmation message you will see a ‘Configure’ button - click on it.
If you have already closed the message, you can find the Mailjet module in the ‘Installed Modules’ tab and select the ‘Configure’ option from there.
If you are not yet a Mailjet user, please click on ‘Register’ to create a new account, or go directly to Mailjet by clicking here. To view the different pricing plans, please use the ‘Pricing’ button.
Once you have a Mailjet account, click on ‘Connect’ to enter your Mailjet Main Account API Key & Secret Key information as shown below.
Use the Mailjet account link to view your API Key information. Copy and paste your credentials and click ‘Save & Login’.
Congratulations! You have successfully connected the PrestaShop plugin to your Mailjet account.
Synchronization of Contacts¶
Once your Mailjet account is connected to the PrestaShop platform, an initial transfer of all PrestaShop contacts will be done. This includes:
- Registered customers, who sign up for the newsletter upon registering or by editing their account settings
- Non-registered users, who use the PrestaShop subscription form
The transferred information will include:
- For registered customers - email address, first and last name
- For non-registered users - only email address
All of those contacts will be added to a ‘PrestaShop Customers Master List’ in your Mailjet account. You can find it afterwards in your Mailjet Contacts page.
The master list will automatically be updated with new entries for customers who subscribe to the mailing list, or non-registered users who use the PrestaShop subscription form.
If at any point new or existing unsubscribed customers subscribe (or are manually subscribed from the Prestashop admin), they will automatically be added to the list. If a customer unsubscribes or their account is deactivated, the contact will be removed from the contact list altogether. The purpose is to keep the master list as clean as possible, in order to avoid any issues with deliverability, spam complaints etc.
How to Configure SPF / DKIM Records¶
Before you start sending your first emails, it is highly recommended to set up your SPF and DKIM records. This will be covered in the Account section of this guide, but for more information, please visit our FAQs:
