The Benchmark and PieSync Integration enables you to integrate with different services that Benchmark may not integrate with. You’ll be able to take advantage of the 2-way sync that PieSync offers.
With our the Benchmark PieSync integration not only will you be able to add contacts or contact changes into your Benchmark account from the 3rd party, but you can also update your 3rd party account with any changes in your Benchmark list. Long are the days, where you needed to import contacts manually. Let our integration do all the work for you.
All Free and Paid accounts will have access to the Benchmark PieSync integration.
Since PieSync is a 3rd party company you must consent to their terms and conditions when initially sign up to use the integration. A new account will be created, or you can choose to login into an already existing PieSync account.
Initial Set up Once you have created your PieSync account you will automatically be on their 14 Day free trial plan. During this trial, you can create unlimited connections and sync unlimited contacts. When the 14 day trial expires, all active connections will be suspended until the account is upgraded to a paid plan or you upgrade to their Forever Plan. The Forever Plan allows you to sync 2,000 contacts for free ($19 Value) per month. This plan is specifically offered to Benchmark users, who sign up to PieSync using the Benchmark interface.
If you have more than 2,000 contacts you may upgrade your PieSync account to a better suited plan. If you exceed your contact limit for your billing period, PieSync will automatically upgrade you to the next plan fitting your new contact count.
If you decide that PieSync isn’t for you, you can cancel your PieSync account at any time.
You must be logged in to your Benchmark account to access the PieSync integration. You can access the integration from 2 different areas, the Partner Services page or by going Add contacts to a List and selecting Sync Contacts.
The instructions below will be based on the Partner Services page.
A pop-up will load and show you a screen based on the email address associated with your Benchmark account.PieSync uses your primary Benchmark email address to identify if you have an existing PieSync account.
If you do not have a PieSync account a Pop-up will appear with Terms and Conditions, to continue select I Accept.
If you already have a PieSync account that has the same email address as your Benchmark account, it will ask if you want to connect that account.
Now you can begin creating connections!
Your connection is now complete! Return to your Benchmark account and continue creating great emails.
How long does it take to sync my contacts?
Your initial sync can take between 5 to 15 minutes, and future syncs will happen almost instantaneously in just seconds.
Can I delete a connection?
Yes, you can delete a connection. However this action is not reversible, any contacts previously synced will not be affected.
