Mandrill Integration Pro - Transactional Emails via MailChimp

Mandrill Integration Pro - Transactional Emails via MailChimp
Purpose
Use Mandrill App to increase deliverability of your emails!

Mandrill App runs on the same infrastructure as that powers MailChimp, and is created by the same company.

Three use cases:
1. If you use MailChimp for your marketing emails/ newsletters, using Mandrill is a no-brainer. You get Mandrill quota, you use the same log in, and you reap the benefits.
2. Some hosting provider don't allow to use SMTP or PHP mail() function. If that's your problem, Mandrill is the solution.
3. Your mail send works okay, but you want to increase deliverability.

This extension adds Mandrill integration to your opencart system. The setup is simple and looks just like mail and SMTP. But the mail is actually sent via Mandrill/MailChimp servers.

Installation v 2.9+ and Update
  • Extract/Unzip the archive you downloaded.
  • Upload the contents of the "upload" folder to your OpenCart root (e.g. via cPanel File Manager, FTP, SFTP, etc)[/code]

  6. Mail is not being sent out To prevent SPAM, and maintain good status, Mandrill asks you to add and verify your sending domain to your Mandrill account.
