GetOpeners: How to integrate with Maropost

You can integrate your GetOpeners account directly with Maropost.

An integration between GetOpeners and Maropost allows you to sync live open events so you can send your audience an automated email when they are in their inbox.

What you’ll need

1. Your Account ID and API Key. Find your Account ID in your Maropost Dashboard by holding your cursor over your profile name in the top right and then clicking Connections.

2. Your Account ID will appear at the top.

3. To find your API Key, click your username in the top-right corner. Then, click Settings.

4. Then, click API Keys.

5. To create your API Key, click Add Key.

6. Give it a Key Name, and copy the API Key.

To get started

1. From your GetEmails dashboard, click the GetEmails logo in the top-left corner.

2. The drop-down menu will appear. Click GetOpeners. You will be taken to the GetOpeners dashboard.

3. Click on Integrations from the left navigation panel in GetOpeners. Then, click Available Integrations at the top and choose the Maropost icon.

4. Paste your Account ID and API Key in the box, and click Connect.

5. Click Yes to enable Sync Live Open Events. Select your Tag (event identifier) from the drop-down menu, and click Next.

6. Enter an email address that already exists in Maropost to send a test event. Click Send. If you don’t currently have contacts, click Next.

7. You can set up automated list refresh if you want our system to automatically update your list in GetOpeners once a month. This will add any newly engaged contacts and remove those that no longer fit the segment criteria. Head to How to setup Unengaged List Refresh below to set this up.

8. Enable the integration. Then, click Finish.

Remember: For the integration to be on, it needs to be Enabled AND have Event Sync turned on (choose “Yes”).

9. You will be taken to Integration Settings. This is where you can Disable/Enable the integration, Remove it, edit your Event Sync settings, and edit your Unengaged List Refresh.

10. The open events will be saved in Maropost under Audience > Contacts > Lists. The Tag you chose in the integration for your event identifier will appear under Contact Tags.
