Maropost Marketing Cloud natively integrates with Magento Open Source Edition (v2.x). Use this integration to transfer your customers from Magento into Maropost Marketing Cloud, as well as their purchase history.
Maropost Marketing Cloud uses Magento’s application programming interface (API) to pull customer data and purchase history data once every 24 hours at 8AM Eastern Time Zone. Magento’s API does not support data transfers more frequently than once every day.
