Aweber is one of the most popular auto-responder services.

General Idea

Auto-responder integration in Magic Members works with the registration (also with upgrade and extend) form. When users register, if they select the checkbox where it says “I would like to receive updates”, they will be added to your auto-responder list.

Only users with successful registration process (“Active” user status) will be added to the list.

Integration Steps

Aweber:

You’ll need to create a form or edit your existing form to get the details.

Access to https://www.aweber.com/users/web_forms and click the Preview button to display and view the source code.

Then you can get the two required variables:
meta_web_form_id
listname

aweber-form-id

OPTIONAL STEP:
By default, only user’s email will be sent to Aweber’s list. If you want to send more details about your customers to Aweber, you need to create those fields in your Aweber form. Then, you’ll not the “name” variables for your field.

  1. Primary Settings:Set the Web Form Id and Unit/List Name that you created in your Aweber account.
  2. Field Mappings: (OPTIONAL STEP)If you don’t set anything here, integration will still work. It will map the e-mail address then send it to your list. But, if you want more fields to be sent to your Aweber account, then please edit the fields that you want to map at Magic Members –> Content Control –> Custom User Fields and select “Send to Autoresponder”.
