How to Install and Use the Sendinblue Addon with WPForms

Would you like to add users to your Sendinblue lists through your WordPress forms? With the Sendinblue addon from WPForms, you can easily subscribe, unsubscribe, or delete users in your Sendinblue account each time a user submits your form.

In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to install and use the Sendinblue addon with WPForms.

Note: The Sendinblue addon is available with the Plus license or higher.


Installing the Sendinblue Addon

Before getting started, you’ll first need to make sure that WPForms is installed and activated on your WordPress site.

Once you’ve got WPForms installed and your license is verified, you’ll be able to quickly install and activate the Sendinblue addon.

Connecting Your Sendinblue Account to WPForms

Once the Sendinblue addon is installed and activated, you’re ready to connect your account. To do this, go to WPForms » Settings and click on the Integrations tab.

Adding a Sendinblue Integration to Your Forms

Once you’ve successfully connected your Sendinblue account, you’re ready to add Sendinblue to a form. To do this, you’ll first need to create a new form or edit an existing form.

Within the form builder, go to Marketing » Sendinblue. Then, in the Sendinblue tab, click on the Add New Connection button.

If you have more than one Sendinblue account connected to WPForms, you can select the account you’d like to use from the Select Account dropdown. Then, under Action to Perform, select the action you’d like to happen when users submit your form. For our example, we’ll select Subscribe to add users to our Sendinblue contacts.

Once you’ve selected an action to perform, additional settings will populate for you to configure.

We’ve outlined each of these options below, with required fields marked with an asterisk.

  • Email:* Select the WPForms field that will contain the subscriber’s email address.
  • New Email: Select the WPForms field that would contain the new email address of the subscriber. This field is only necessary when updating an existing contact in Sendinblue, so for our example, we’ll leave this field blank.
  • List:* Select the Sendinblue list that you’d like the subscriber to be added to.

If you’d like, you can also map any custom fields you’ve added to your Sendinblue account under the Custom Field Name section.
