One of my clients needs the ability to send professional HTML Newsletters and keep tabs on open rates, subscriber levels and all the rest of that data that should be interesting to every shop owner.
So, he set out to find a Mailchimp integration that;
2. has modern code
3. looks good
4. has the ability to talk both ways (osc > MC and MC > osc)
There are NONE that are made for osCommerce. So…let's get started;
What is needed?
a. ability for new customers to tick the newsletter box in create_account.php
b. ability for existing customers to add themselves onto the mailing list
c. ability for existing customers to remove themselves from the mailing list
d. ability for admin to add or remove customers from the mailing list
e. if a subscriber deletes themself via the unsubscribe link (in the newsletter) their shop account is changed to reflect this
f. ability for NON customers to sign up
