10 ecommerce tools to integrate with AWeber
1. Shopify integration
Shopify is one of the best ecommerce platforms with everything you need to sell online, on social media, or in person. The AWeber and Shopify integration leverages the powerful customer data from your Shopify store to create targeted, timely email marketing campaigns.
Shopify allows you to easily create an online shopping experience, including website creation, product management, and inventory. Connecting Shopify and AWeber requires absolutely zero coding experience.
Plus, AWeber’s Shopify integration includes tag support, which lets you tag your subscribers based on their interest in specific products. This lets you send more targeted content to customers within the same list, including cart abandonment emails.

2. WooCommerce integration
WooCommerce is one of the most customizable ecommerce platforms for building the online business of your dreams. It is also one of the most popular WordPress ecommerce plugins.
With the AWeber and WooCommerce plugin, you can quickly and easily grow your email audience and boost sales. It includes tag support — making it easier to know more about your audience, boost sales with personalization, and motivate your audience to purchase by emailing them incentives.
The cart abandonment options in AWeber’s WooCommerce integration have some additional features that are worth checking out. Customers can recover an abandoned cart by simple clicking a link in the email. This recovery hyperlink takes them back to their cart and allows them to complete their purchase. You can also see when a cart is or is not recovered, so you can send them an incentive to revisit your store.

3. PayPal integration
PayPal is one of the easiest and most convenient ways to let customers complete their purchases. Plus, AWeber’s PayPal integration adds subscribers to your email list when a payment is made with a PayPal button. It can also unsubscribe them if recurring payments stop. You can also add customized product tags to your subscribers, which lets you send more personalized email messages based on what you know they like.
Tags allow you to create all types of awesome segments, broadcasts, campaigns, and dynamic content to target subscribers more precisely. This makes it easy to turn first-time buyers into repeat customers by emailing new customers an incentive — like a coupon, discount code, or free content they may like based on their first purchase.
4. Etsy integration
Etsy is a global commerce platform that focuses on selling unique and creative goods, including handmade, vintage, and craft supplies. The Etsy platform is an awesome ecommerce solution for creative and crafty entrepreneurs. Etsy allows creative entrepreneurs to sell their products online and offers a wide range of tools that help makers start, manage, and scale their businesses.
Etsy is fast and affordable. Plus, creating a shop on Etsy is free, but you only have to pay $0.20 for listing your products for four months or until they sell.
The AWeber and Etsy integration includes tag support, making it easy for you to use advanced settings to automate email campaigns when specific tags are applied, so you deliver emails based on a person’s purchase history. Emails followed up with personalized content help to increase revenue opportunities in your automated campaigns.

5. ClickBank integration
ClickBank is a global retailer and an affiliate marketplace that allows entrepreneurs to earn income on commissions of other people’s products that they promote and sell. It benefits the product owner and the affiliate promoting the product as it provides the opportunity for both parties to earn revenue. Plus, it potentially expands the products’ reach to a new audience.
AWeber’s integration with ClickBank makes finding affiliate products to promote to your audience incredibly easy and straightforward. Simply select the product and get a link to include in your newsletter or on social media. When a member of your audience purchases that product, you receive a commission. Commissions vary by product but tend to be around 50%.
AWeber’s Clickbank integration has tag support, similar to many of the other integrations we already talked about. Tagging subscribers based on products they’re interested in makes it easy to email customers an incentive — like a coupon, discount code, or free content they may like based on their first purchase. Easily automate campaigns based on a person’s purchase history when a tag is applied, allowing you to follow up with more relevant and personalized content to increase your revenue opportunities.
6. BeatStars integration
BeatStars is a social music marketplace for recording artists, songwriters, beatmakers, and music producers to upload, sell, and distribute music. As the beat selling industry becomes more popular, it is more important than ever for artists to connect with their audience to create a long-lasting relationship.
Email marketing is one of the most effective ways for beatmakers and music producers to market their audio. By connecting with AWeber, sellers can add people who purchase music to an email list. When you have new music to download or a tour to announce, you can easily reach out to your audience.
AWeber allows you to use tags to segment your audience based on what links they’re clicking. Set it up to trigger campaigns automatically when a tag is added, so you can easily send personalized content to the right audience at the right time to increase beat sales.

ThriveCart is somewhat unique when it comes to pricing. Most shopping cart services charge a monthly fee, but with ThriveCart, you pay a one-time fee for a lifetime of services.

With the AWeber and SamCart integration, buyers can be added or removed from the lists you choose. AWeber makes it easy to automate a welcome series campaign for new customers to begin building a relationship with your audience while keeping them engaged over time.
10. JVZOO integration
JVZoo is an affiliate marketplace that helps facilitate and automate sales, process payments, market and deliver digital products in over 200 niches, including affiliate marketers, software developers, info-marketers, membership sites, and product creators.
For product sellers, there are no setup or maintenance fees. Your affiliates only make a commission when a sale is made, not when traffic comes to your site.
If you are an affiliate, your commission will be deposited instantly into your JZooPay affiliate account every time you make a sale. JZooPay is 100% free to use for affiliates.
When AWeber is integrated with your JVZoo, customers are added to your AWeber mailing list at the time of purchase.
