  1. A popup will ask you to enter a URL. Please enter a URL as described above.

Example:
The easiest way to send an email is with the folling webhook URL, it will send the email through your default gateway. All you need to set it up is your domain, where ActiveMember360 is installed and the mailer extension is enabled, one of your security codes and the desired template ID. Per default, ActiveMember360’s mailer extension sends an email only to contacts which are subscribed at least to one list.

To send through a specific gateway you also need the gateway ID you’ve previously defined.

If you have multiple gateways defined and you want send through randomly chosen gateways set the gateway to random in the URL:

If you want to send emails to contacts which are not subscribed to at least one list you can use the “force” parameter in your webhook URL. (Not recommended)

Your unsubscribe links in your email template will be processed by ActiveMember360’s mailer extension. When you contact clicks the unsubscribe link in an email sent through the mailer extension, it will unsubscribe the contact from all lists. This behaves the same way as when unscubribing from links send through an email delivered within an ActiveCampaign automation. If you want your contacts only to unsubscribe from certain list, use the optout parameter with your webhook URL. This parameter needs the list ID you want them to unsubscribe from.

Single list

Multiple lists

All lists

Once you entered the webhook URL and saved it, the webhook action in your automation should look like in the screenshot below:

Your automation is now set up to send ActiveCampaign email templates through your own SMTP gateway via ActiveMember360’s mailer extension.
