You can also access the configuration later from “Modules > Modules and services” > Connectif” by clicking Configure.

 

STEP 3. Configuring the PrestaShop module

3.1. Basic configuration

(This section will show the identifying data of your account in order to sync it and start gathering data about your contacts’ interaction on the site in real time).

10. Go back to the Connectif tab you left open (“Integrations > PrestaShop” section) and copy the identifying data for your account (“Client identifier” and “Secret key”).

13. Click   Save.

14. There’s no need to do anything in this section.

 

3.3. Public URLs

(In this section the URLs to subscribe to/unsubscribe from the newsletter are filled automatically, as well as that for the Service Worker for push notifications).

 15. There’s no need to do anything in this section.
 
You can check these URLs in your Connectif account:

— Newsletter subscriptions/unsubscriptions, in “Integrations > Prestashop”.

Push notifications service worker, in “Integrations > Website > Push Notifications”.

3.4 Registration form fields

(This section shows the contact’s details gathered in PrestaShop that you want to sync with Connectif).

16. In the Contact fields section, the fields firstname, “lastname” and birthdayappear by default. If you want Connectif to sync any of the other options in this section or the Address fields section, select “Yes” in the desired fields.

 

To check the data selected in each contact’s profile, you’ll need to create a custom field in each of these in which the ID is the same as that shown in the list (for example, id_gender). This step must be taken with all optional fields active, except for “Newsletter”, which automatically captures subscriptions. You can find more information about this here.

3.5. Advanced parameters

(In this section you can configure advanced options for the integration).

17. For a basic integration, there’s no need to take any action in this step. If you want a more advanced configuration, activate or deactivate the options you want to sync with Connectif

  • Use SKU as product identifier: use the SKU of your products in PrestaShop as the ID for products in Connectif.

  • Select product image size: indicate the type of product image that will be synced (we recommend selecting the same one as used in the PrestaShop product sheet).

  • Order events: register all orders.

  • Sign-up events: register all sign-up events.

  • Log-in events: register all of the contact’s log-ins.

  • Newsletter subscription events: register newsletter subscriptions.

  • Cart status: register events relating to the cart status..

  • Search events: register search events in the ecommerce platform.

  • Round prices: round product prices up or down in Connectif.

  • Include tax in discounts: include VAT in products with a discount..

  • Enable debugging logs: activate/deactivate logs.

  • Check that the hook top does not render more than once: activate/deactivate calculation of percentage discount based on prices.

  • Calculate the percentage discount based on prices: activate/deactivate the calculation that sets it automatically.

  • Activate multi-language: gather contacts’ interaction data differentiated by language.

STEP 4. Configuration in stores with various languages

 

You will only need to carry out this step if your PrestaShop features several languages and/or currencies.

 

For multilingual ecommerce sites, you’ll need to open an individual account for each language and currency. For more information, contact accountmanager@connectif.es.

To register differentiated data by language, in the previous point (17) the option “Activate multi-language” should be activated.

18. On the Basic configuration tab, click  .

19. In a new browser window, access the Connectif account of the corresponding language and copy the identifying data (“Client ID” and “Secret key”), as indicated in point 10.

20. Go back to PrestaShop and paste the identifying data (“Client ID” and “Secret key”).

21. Select the language and currency you want to sync with your Connectif account.

22. In the “Enabled” field, click YES.

TROUBLESHOOTING

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.

  • 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:
    {hook h='displayTop'}
  

You can check the official PrestaShop information by clicking here.

  • 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.
