I have followed this tutorial https://mailchimp.com/resources/guides/mailchimp-e-commerce/ to install Mailchimp for Magento extension.

The extension is not showing. So, what have I done so far:

  1. I have extracted the extension zip where I get this folders: app, js, lib, shell, skin folders and package.xml. I copy and pasted this folders and files into magento root directory.
  2. Run php bin/magento setup:upgrade adn php bin/magento setup:di:compile
  3. Flush the cache And nothing. There is no mailchimp tab on the configuration page. I have successfully installed some plugins already, but they had different structure, so maybe I am missing some step. For the previos plugin I needed to enable the plugin via terminal:

php bin/magento module:enable Pdf_Invoice_Plus

The name was in registration.php file. I don't have registration.php file in this extension so I don't know the real name of this extension so I tried:

php bin/magento module:enable mailchimp+MailChimp_For_Magento Unknown module(s): 'mailchimp+MailChimp_For_Magento'

php bin/magento module:enable MailChimp_For_Magento Unknown module(s): 'MailChimp_For_Magento'

php bin/magento module:enable Ebizmarts_MailChimp Unknown module(s): 'Ebizmarts_MailChimp'

I am stuck. Forever.

Magento 2 extensions always have a registration.php and no js, lib, shell and skin directories. You extracted a Magento 1 extension into a Magento 2 installation. The tutorial you linked also refers to Magento 1.

Magento 1 and Magento 2 are two completely different systems, you need to find a Magento 2 specific extension.

  • I understand that now, I quess there is not mailchimp for magento extension for magento 2. I will go back to magemonkey and try to customize it. Jun 26, 2017 at 12:32

I think you may have downloaded magento 1 extension instead of Magento 2.

You can check this extension

  • I did install this magemonkey extension, connected it to my mailchimp api, but it did not do anything. It did not sync the users, did not send to mailcimp new subscribers. I did not know what to do with it. Jun 26, 2017 at 12:04
