ActiveCampaign

Perfectly segment your ActiveCampaign contacts with the SamCart Integration Engine.

Integrating SamCart with your ActiveCampaign account will allow you to get even more out of your email marketing.

Below, you will find instructions on how to setup your integration, how to check on the status of your integration, and an outline of the features this integration will provide for you.

NOTE: If you're testing your integration in Test Mode, make sure you don't use the same email address as the admin email address for the ActiveCampaign account.

Integrate With ActiveCampaign

To start, make sure you are logged into your SamCart account. After you are logged in, follow these directions to setup your ActiveCampaign integration.

  • Click on “Settings” in the top right corner of your screen and navigate to Integrations:

  • Click New Integration in the bottom right, and select ActiveCampaign from the dropdown menu.

  • On the next screen, give this integration a Name. The name will be used around your SamCart account, and help you tell this integration from your others. A typical name might be "Scott's ActiveCampaign Account".
  • Then drop in in your ActiveCampaign API URL and API Key in the fields provided. Each of these items are found inside of your ActiveCampaign account.

  • When you're all set, click SaveIntegration.

After you're done, you'll see ActiveCampaign is now "Active" and ready to go with SamCart!

What Your ActiveCampaign Integration Can Do

Once you have successfully connected your ActiveCampaign account to SamCart, you can use the SamCart Integration Engine to easily create your own custom integration rules!

For any SamCart product, you can take the following actions in ActiveCampaign...

  • Add/Remove a contact to a list
  • Add/Remove Tags from a contact

Anytime the following events happen inside of SamCart...

  • The product is purchased
  • A new Prospect is created
  • A subscription is started
  • A failed charge occurs
  • The product is refunded
  • And a whole lot more!

So you can mix + match these actions/triggers to keep your contacts perfectly segmented. Setup your rules, and SamCart's Integration Engine will work around the clock to automate more of your critical tasks.

Setup Integration Rules by going into any Product, select the "Integrations" tab, and then selecting New Rule.

On Step #1, pick the SamCart Trigger Event that will fire this Integration Rule.

On Step #2, use the first dropdown menu to select your ActiveCampaign integration. In the second dropdown menu, select which action you would like to take inside of ActiveCampaign.

And lastly, Step #3 is where you can choose which tag(s) or list(s) to use in this rule. Just start typing, and your tags/lists will automatically show up. You can select multiple tags/list, like the example shown below.

Don't see the tag or list you're looking for? Click on the Refresh button, and SamCart will pull in all the latest tags and lists from your ActiveCampaign account!

Click Submit, and your new ActiveCampaign Integration Rule is done! You can see a list all of your active rules on the Integrations tab. 

Send Order Information to ActiveCampaign

ActiveCampaign has an e-commerce dashboard, and we have recently enhanced the integration to start sending order data automatically to ActiveCampaign after a sale is completed on any of your SamCart checkout pages. 

We recommend setting up a global rule for this as it will send over information on all orders for all products inside your SamCart dashboard! Setup only takes a few minutes - you just have to create one global integration rule, and SamCart takes care of the rest! So let's jump right in...

Once ActiveCampaign is connected, go to the Global Rules tab inside the Integrations Settings. This will be located inside the Global Marketplace Settings when you select Integrations on the left menu.

Press the blue New Rule button to create the global integration rule. 

Select the Order Completed trigger from the dropdown and press Next Step

Choose the ActiveCampaign integration from the dropdown and select the only option available - Create E-commerce Order

The next screen will just prompt you to confirm setup. Press Submit and you are all done! It is really that simple!

SamCart will send the entire order to ActiveCampaign including all products from the main checkout page, order bump, and upsell funnel. 

Here is the info you can expect to see inside ActiveCamapign after the integration rule fires: 

SamCart Order ID

Customer Email

Order Created Date

Total Price 

Shipping

Tax

Discounts (with promo code used)

Currency

All Products Included (Product ID, Name, Price, Quantity, and Description)

Here is a sample of how the order data will look once it is passed into ActiveCampaign.
