Would you like to add emails from form submissions to your GetResponse lists? With the GetResponse addon for WPForms, you can easily create new mailing list subscribers from your form submissions. In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to install and use the GetResponse addon for WPForms.
Requirements: You will need a Plus license level or higher to access the GetResponse addon.
1. Connecting Your GetResponse Account to WPForms
Before we get started, be sure to install and activate WPForms on your WordPress site.
Next, you’ll need to install and activate the GetResponse addon. For more details, please see our tutorial on installing WPForms addons.
Once the GetResponse addon is installed, you can connect your account. To do this, go to WPForms » Settings and click on the Integrations tab.
From this tab, you can click on the GetResponse option to open it. Then, go ahead and click the Add Account button.
After clicking this button, you’ll see fields to add your GetResponse account API and a nickname.
To find your API key, log into your GetResponse account. Then, hover over your profile photo to display the menu and select Integrations & API.
Next, click the API option in the left menu. From this page, you can click the Copy button to easily copy the API key.
Now that you’ve copied the API key, you can return to the WPForms settings and paste it into the field labeled GetResponse API Key. Then, enter anything you’d like into the GetResponse Account Nickname field. This is for internal reference only, and can be helpful if you later decide to connect additional GetResponse accounts.
When you’re ready, go ahead and click the Connect to GetResponse button.
WPForms will now connect your site to your GetResponse account. When done, it will show a green Connected status next to your GetResponse integration.
2. Adding GetResponse Integration to Your Forms
To add GetResponse to a form, first create a new form or edit an existing form.
Within the form builder, go to Marketing » GetResponse. Then on the GetResponse tab, click on the Add New Connection button.
Clicking this button will open an overlay where you can provide a nickname for this connection. You can enter any nickname you like, as this is for internal reference only.
If you have more than one GetResponse account, you can now Select Account. Next, under Select List choose the GetResponse mailing list you’d like to use.
Last, under List Fields you can set which fields will get sent to GetResponse. To to this, select a form field from each dropdown.
Note: Be sure to map the Email field, as it’s required to create a subscriber in GetResponse.
Conditional Logic (Optional)
Conditional logic allows you to set rules for events based on the user’s selections in their form entry.
For example, you could use conditional logic to allow users to choose if they’d like to be added to your GetResponse mailing list.
That’s it! You can now automatically add new subscribers to your GetResponse lists when new form entries are submitted.
