GETTING STARTED GUIDE: How to set up a new connection?

ALL FEATURES EXPLAINED: All our features/functionality explained in detail - no app-specifics.

AWeber offers an affordable and easy to use email marketing and autoresponder service used by small businesses, bloggers and entrepreneurs around the world. Use their web-based tools to help you grow by staying in touch with customers and prospects through email.

Below you'll find detailed information, specifically for AWeber integrations:

Supported AWeber Integrations

Authorizing AWeber

  1. We need your Login Name and Password.

  1. You will then need to choose the AWeber Account you wish to sync with.

  1. Finish by choosing the list you wish to sync with.

When you set up a sync between two apps, PieSync normally syncs all contact fields in realtime, two-way. Whatever field changes, PieSync picks it up and syncs it to the other side. Please be aware that for syncs with AWeber, there is a slight limitation to this.

Only when a contact subscribes or unsubscribes will PieSync be able to sync back changes inside of AWeber to your other app.
Changes happening in your other app will always sync into AWeber in real time. Any changes happening in your other app will sync to AWeber immediately

Combined Shape

Tip: you can always manually restart the sync by clicking “Save & resume syncing” to force PieSync to read into possible changes that happened in AWeber. `

If you already authorized AWeber account(s) in the past or in any other PieSync integration, you'll be able to skip the first part of the authorization and choose from your CONNECTED ACCOUNTS.

Default Field Mapping

Depending on the other app you're syncing with, you'll see a number of standard AWeber fields being mapped by default. For instance, in a connection with HubSpot, the default field mapping looks like this:

PieSync syncs the default name field(s) that come with the apps. Sometimes they have a different structure in both apps you connect. E.g. first and last names are separate in app A and joint in a single field in app B. In the background, PieSync joins first and last names together from app A to B and separates them again from app B to A. Our algorithm is smart about which part it updates in app B.

Customizable Field Mapping

You can custom map your AWeber Custom Fields and any additional standard fields that aren't included in the default mapping. Bear in mind a mapping between two fields can only exist if the types of fields are compatible, and the particular compatibility will determine the direction of the mapping as well. More information on Customizable Field Mapping here.

Additional Options

Creating Subscribers

A confirmation email will only be sent out in case you are adding new subscribers to your Aweber list. So as long as the checkbox "Also create subscribers in AWeber" will remain unchecked (as is the default), we will not add any new subscribers to AWeber, nor will your AWeber account send out confirmation emails.

If you rather have that PieSync doesn't send out confirmation emails whilst still being able to create new subscribers, that is possible:

Each AWeber list created is defaulted to double opt-in. If you wish to deactivate double opt-in, you can reach out to the AWeber customer support team and request double opt-in be disabled.

By having double opt-in disabled, PieSync will be able to create new subscribers even if the checkbox is disabled

Syncing Deletions

Currently, there are no AWeber integrations on the PieSync platform that support our deletions sync.

Syncing Unsubscribes

You have the ability to sync unsubscribed contacts by selecting specific filters or actions from the PieSync Rules.

Combined Shape

For this particular case, we label the unsubscribed contacts in Google Contacts to have an easy overview.
