Documentation, Reference Materials and Tutorials for WPForms
WPForms makes it super easy to add email subscription signup forms using popular email service providers. In this article, we will show you how to connect your Constant Contact account to WPForms and create a Constant Contact newsletter signup form.
Constant Contact integration is built-in to the WPForms plugin, so there’s no need to install an addon. It’s available for every license.
Before we get started, you’ll need to have the WPForms plugin installed on your WordPress site.
Connect WPForms to Constant Contact
Log in to your WordPress admin area and navigate to WPForms » Settings » Integrations. Click on the Constant Contact item. Then, click the Add New Account button.
Constant Contact requires you to authenticate it with WPForms in order to function. You’ll now need to register WPForms with Constant Contact.
To register, click on the link Click here to register with Constant Contact.
This will open a new window where you’ll be asked to allow access to WPForms by clicking the Allow Access button.
You’ll now see the Constant Contact authorization code. Just copy it and enter it in WPForms.
You can use anything in the Constant Contact Account Nickname field, since it’s just for your internal reference.
When you’ve entered both fields, click the Connect to Constant Contact button to continue. WPForms will now connect your site to your Constant Contact account. See the screenshot below.
Connecting Constant Contact with Your Form
To create your Constant Contact newsletter subscription form, go to WPForms » Add New or edit an existing form in which you’d like to connect Constant Contact.
You can refer to this guide on how to create your first form if you need assistance.
Now click Marketing » Constant Contact » Add New Connection in your form builder.
Now select an account and a list to which you’d like to connect the form. You’ll also need to connect your form fields with the fields in your Constant Contact list.
The default Constant Contact list will show you a huge list of fields. Since the only required field is email, you can leave the others blank, or just choose to collect email addresses and names.
Here is the full list of default form fields, in case you want to configure more than just name and email address.
- Full Name
- First Name
- Last Name
- Job Title
Once done, click Save to continue.
That’s it! You’ve successfully created a newsletter signup form with Constant Contact.
