Find agile solutions to the most frequently-occurring incidents when creating a PrestaShop integration.
1. Order, contact and/or event data is not being registered.
- In Advanced parameters, check that the following options are active:
- “Order events”, to register order data.
- “Registration events”, to copy contact data.
- “Cart events”, to capture cart status.
If they’re deactivated, click Yes in the fields you need and Save to enable them.
- Check that the Connectif module is anchored to the displayTop hook in “Design > Positions” in PrestaShop.
- Make sure that your templated does not modify PrestaShop base pages (such as Checkout, for example) and execute the displayTop hook like this:
- Configure your payment platform so that after each transaction, the contact is redirected automatically to the Payment confirmation page in the ecommerce platform.
2. Newsletter subscription statuses are not syncing.
- Check that the autocompleted URLs in “Integrations > PrestaShop” in your Connectif account correspond with the URLs of the module installed in your PrestaShop in “Configuration > public URLs”
- Check that the URLs exist by copying and pasting them into the address bar of your browser. If a 404 error message appears, you’ll need to correct this in the ecommerce platform itself.
