External Auto Responders
This section is provided for merchants that want to integrate their UltraCart customer base with an External Auto Responder. UltraCart collects the information and sends it via email to the Auto Responder who in turn, parses the information to be stored in the merchants Auto Responder file.
This configuration can also be used for developing your own database listing of customers or for importing into non-integrated emailing programs.
At the Marketing menu, click on the External Auto Responders link. The following screen will appear.
If you have no auto responders defined, the familiar "no records are defined" screen will appear. Click on the "new" button to configure a new auto responder. The External Auto Responder configuration screen will appear.

There are additional steps at AWeber that you need to complete to setup this integration.
