This module provide a link between a Magento webshop (front and backend) and the Antavo Enterprise Loyalty Cloud. The API-based integration strongly features Antavo’s JavaScript SDK and this combination kickstarts the integration of Antavo services whilst adapting the module to software and process requirements. This module executes functions within Magento and sends in various customer lifecycle events and transactional data to Antavo.


The Antavo Magento module is compatible up to Magento 2.4.2 Magento 1.x series is not supported.


Antavo strives to ensure that the integration module is compatible with as many third-party modules as possible. However, compatibility cannot be guaranteed with all modules from the Magento store and therefore it is strongly suggested that regression tests are performed before pushing the solution to production.


The following are required before integration:

  • Magento Open Source / Commerce 2.4.2

  • custom domain

  • a live, staging and test server

  • access to Antavo Enterprise Loyalty Cloud

The Antavo Magento module has the following dependencies

  • PHP 7.* (up to 7.4)

  • antavo/library-loyalty-apps from the package

Level of effort#

This highly versatile module needs tailoring to your order lifecycle as checkout updates, rejects, and accepts are not automatically covered by default. This highly customer specific module configuration has to be tailored to match your business requirements and to make this process as painless as possible, the module structure has been made compliant with the most strict Magento standards. This fine and stringent configuration means that intensive and extensive testing is necessary post-integration and webshop configuration.

Development work is required to integrate this extension but a system administrator is not required to carry out the integration. The collection of any loyalty-related data, either directly from the shop frontend or via the customer account area, requires the manual embedding of the Loyalty Hub, the responsive, loyalty focused landing page. This integration will not create a new CMS page nor add menu item to Magento.

The integration work usually takes between 8-48 man hours including the installation, plugin configuration and webshop preparation. You should have an intermediate knowledge of PHP and be quite familiar with Magento 2.x and its structure. You don’t have to be a certificated Magento expert to integrate this extension into your webshop system.

Help texts will guide you through the configuration of the module on its settings page.

Checking configuration#

Open Magento’s MySQL database and navigate to table core_config_data. All the settings for the Loyalty Apps configuration can be accessed.

Enter Antavo.SDK.getBrand() in network’s console panel at your webshop will return the connected brand data upon a successful connection.

Antavo.SDK.getCustomer() will also returns the currently authenticated loyalty member (while auth type is cookie).

The customer getter will return null for the case when the auth type is social. In-browser cookies have to be checked in order to look at currently logged on customers.

The Antavo Loyalty Engine uses cookies for many of its functions. The Loyalty Hub thus needs to be running on the same top domain as your webstore in order for the engine to able read and write cookies.

Setting up a custom subdomain for your program, like is usually done in conjunction your DNS provider, typically the place where the domain for your website was registered.

The first step is is to set up a CNAME record which points to

This is done by configuring the DNS as follows: 1800 CNAME

This can usually be done in the administration panel of your DNS provider. If this is not available, then connect the provider directly with above settings.

These settings need some time (up to 24 hours) to propagate across the internet . The result can be verified by opening the desired address in your web browser. A correct configuration should result in the Antavo’s default 404 page.


A test environment is necessary to check the module before testing with live data. It is important to perform a load-test and check everything in an environment which closely resembles the production stages.

The testing phase (both environment test & staging) should include testing an additional third-party modules you would like to use to investigate their behavior with the Antavo extension.
