I'm trying to get newsletter subscribers using the code:

$subscribers = Mage::getModel('newsletter/subscriber')->getCollection();

but it is empty. Where I'm wrong? thanks

  • Are you sure there are any subscribers in the first place?

This will show last 10 newsletter subscribers:

$collection = Mage::getModel('newsletter/subscriber')->getCollection()
    ->setOrder('subscriber_id', 'desc');

foreach ($collection as $subscriber) {

Look at Mage_Newsletter_Model_Resource_Subscriber_Collection to see which methods are available. Also look at newsletter_subscriber table.

  1. Check in the magento backend for the site that there are actual subscribers.
  2. Are you loading the required magento file at app/Mage.php?
  3. Are you looping over the items in that collection somehow? You'll probably need to do a foreach loop on it like this:

    foreach ($subscribers as $subscriber){ if ($subscriber->getSubscriberStatus()){ // Do something with $subscriber->getSubscriberEmail(); } }


This is a more efficient way to do it:

$newsletterSubscribers = Mage::getResourceModel('newsletter/subscriber_collection')
        ->addFieldToFilter('subscriber_status', array ('eq' => 1)); // 1 is subscribed
