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.
- Installing the Sendinblue Addon
- Connecting Your Sendinblue Account to WPForms
- Adding a Sendinblue Integration to Your Forms
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.
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.
Then, click on the Sendinblue option to expand its settings. From there, go ahead and click the Add New Account button to enter in your account information.
This will reveal two fields where you’ll need to add your Sendinblue account API key, as well as a nickname for the account.
To find your API key, first log into your Sendinblue account. Once you’ve logged in, click on the main menu, which is located on the top right corner of the page, and select SMTP & API.
From there, you’ll be able to view your API key.
Go ahead and copy this value, and head back over to your WPForms settings. You’ll need to paste your API key into the field labeled Sendinblue API Key.
Then, add a nickname to the Sendinblue Account Nickname field. This is for internal reference only, and can be helpful if you later decide to connect additional Sendinblue accounts.
When you’re ready, go ahead and click the Connect to Sendinblue button.
WPForms will now connect your site to your Sendinblue account. When done, it will show a green Connected status next to your Sendinblue integration.
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.
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 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.
Once you’ve configured all your settings, be sure to save your form.
That’s it! We just showed you how to install and use the Sendinblue addon with WPForms.
