PrestaShop Integration [Version 1.6]

Which version of PrestaShop do you have?

The following instructions are for PrestaShop version 1.6. If you have version 1.7, please click here.

The PrestaShop module connects your e-shop with Samba.ai and was designed for ease and simplicity, requiring very little work to get it up and running.

In the following guide, we break down the steps needed to get your shop integrated and configured with Samba.ai.

INTEGRATION

Step 1 – Register for Samba.ai

Go to https://app.samba.ai/signup and register for Samba

 

 

Step 2 – Download the Samba.ai PrestaShop module

Next, you’ll need to download the Prestashop Module by clicking here or the following button:

Download here

 

Step 3 – Log into PrestaShop

Log into the administration panel

 

Step 4 – Go to Modules and Services > Modules and Services

In the menu, navigate to your Modules and Services, then to Modules and Services.

 

Step 5 – Press the “Add a new module” button

 

 

Step 6 – Click “Choose a file”, select the previously-downloaded sambaai.zip file, and then click the “Upload this module” button

 

Step 7 – Add the Samba.ai connector by clicking the “Install” button

 

Step 8 – Confirm the installation by clicking the “Proceed with the installation” button

Once completed, the newly-installed Samba.ai module will need to be configured.


 

Step 9 – Configure your Trackpoint

From the module settings, press the “Configure” button and you’ll be presented with the following page:


To proceed, you’ll need to input your Trackpoint number. To do so, log into your Samba.ai account and copy the number shown in the URL, as you can see in the image below:

Copy and paste it into the “Trackpoint” field in your PrestaShop admin panel.

 

Step 10 – Choose your Shop and Language

Next, choose which shop you wish to connect to Samba.ai and the language for export feeds. Please note, all Samba.ai e-mails and recommendations will be in that language.

Be careful, if a product doesn’t have a description in the selected language, it will not be included in the feed, which can lead to an extremely low amount of products and less-than-optimal functionality.

 

Step 11 – Enter Samba feed URLs

Next, copy the URLs located in the “Samba feed URLs” field by clicking the “Copy feed URLs” button (as shown below).

Next, go to your Samba.ai dashboard and click the Settings button (the wheel icon on the upper right-hand corner of the screen – as shown below).

From that page, click “Implementation” then “Data integration”.

From there, select “PrestaShop” from the drop-down menu and paste the URLs into the “Insert HERE” field.

After that you should see the following page:

Click “Save configuration”.

Click the “Check” button to validate. You can also check the number of downloaded products – by clicking the box PRODUCTS.

No products?

If the number of downloaded products is zero, it’s likely that the language of the PrestaShop module configuration is set incorrectly.

GOOGLE ANALYTICS

To set up your Google Analytics, navigate to the “Data integration” section in your Samba.ai dashboard and click on the “Google Analytics” tab. From there you can enter your Google Analytics ID, if you have one.

See https://doc.samba.ai/knowledge-base/google-analytics-2/?lang=en for more details.

DNS RECORDS

If you would like us to send marketing e-mails on your behalf, you’ll have to set up your DNS records. To do so, from the same “Data integration” section click on the “E-mailing integration” tab and add the displayed DNS records to your shop.
