Your instructions on adding AWeber integration (https://www.tipsandtricks-hq.com/ecommerce/how-to-integrate-wp-estore-with-aweber-615) has a couple points I’d like to have clarified.
The instructions say to “specify the list name.” The “list name” in AWeber is a multi-word string. On the Autoresponder tab in WP eStore Settings, it gives the list example as firstname.lastname@example.org. The actual list NAME would not make a valid e-mail entry.
On the other hand, AWeber does allow signing up by e-mail using the list ID, which is in the format awlist1234567.
So, in the settings, am I to enter the list NAME or list ID?
Second question. In the comments, there is mention of an e-mail parser, yet there is nothing in the instructions about setting one up. Do I need to do that, or is filling in the settings enough?
Please consider updating your instructions to clarify these two points.February 6, 2015 at 1:34 am #68437adminKeymaster
You can use the list ID in there and that will work too.
Usually a list name is something like the following (AWeber may have made changes recently):
Then you add the @aweber.com to make it “email@example.com”
So use a List ID or List name and it will work fine.
You don’t need to setup any parser. Some of those comments are outdated.February 12, 2015 at 6:04 am #68438
The list name can be up to 32 characters long, and can include spaces and uppercase letters, which are not e-mail compatible, and it can be changed at any time. (They should probably have called it list description.)
For list ID, aWeber says “Your unique list ID is the automatically generated name for your list.” They say you need the list ID to e-mail the list, to use a custom sign-up form, and also note, “If you connect AWeber with a third party app, they may require your unique list ID.”
It definitely sounds like I need to use the list ID. I urge you to make sure that all instructions use the same terms aWeber uses, because it is confusing otherwise.
Thanks for your help.February 12, 2015 at 6:09 am #68439
Oops, my mistake. AWeber uses the term “list description” for a longer description that subscribers see. So list ID = unique auto-generated identifier, list name = short description for the account owner, list description = longer description subscribers see.
