E-Mail Marketing Integration

DigiMember is NO autoresponder and no e-mail marketing service! In order to add your members to your respective e-mail marketing service, you can connect your e-mail marketing service provider in DigiMember. For this purpose, appropriate interfaces are available for integration.

DigiMember has interfaces to the following e-mail marketing systems:

  • KlickTipp (full integration API)
  • KlickTipp (e-mail integration)
  • aWeber
  • MailChimp
  • Mail jet
  • Clever Reach
  • GetResponse
  • Lead motor

In addition, it is possible to add further providers generically if the corresponding requirements are met by the provider (e.g. server to server notification). Please note that this is only an option for advanced users, usually programming skills are required. We do NOT offer support for the generic connection.
