A Step-by-step Guide to Connect ActiveCampaign with WordPress Form in Forminix
Before we begin with the instructions, a quick mention for you. If you do not have ActiveCampaign account or service up and running, we recommend opening up your account from here. On the other hand, you can check out their 14-day trial period before purchasing any package. Now, with that out of the way, let’s continue.
For sake of this tutorial, we have made a simple custom contact form.
With this form we will be collecting different user inputs and send them from our WordPress to ActiveCampaign contact list with each form submission.
The collected form field inputs will be used as the subscriber profile information in our ActiveCampaign contact list.
Any type of form can be used depending on your needs. Besides you can collect any amount of form field information to make the subscriber profile in the contact list.
Step 1: Enabling the WordPress ActiveCampaign Integration
From your WordPress admin panel, go to the “Modules” menu of the Forminix plugin. Then look for the ActiveCampaign integration toggle and enable it (as shown below).
Step 2: Adding Integration in Form Settings
Now, navigate to your form’s settings page and go to the “Integrations” tab on the top right side.
On the next page you will see the “Add Integration” button at the bottom. Click on it and a popup will appear. From there, select the newly enabled “ActiveCampaign” integration.
Step 3: Adding ActiveCampaign API URL, API Key and Contact List
In the “ActiveCampaign Integration” panel there will be three fields. They are the “API URL” field, “API Key” field and the “Choose Contact List” field.
Let’s take a look at these and fill them up.
API URL and API Key:
The API URL and API Key are prerequisite for the you to be able to send your subscribers form your WordPress to ActiveCampaign contact list. Therefore, you cannot setup your connection without these.
Now, to get the URL and the Key, simply go to your ActiveCampaign dashboard and click on the “Settings” option at the bottom left corner.
Then on the next page, click the “Developer” option from the sidebar on the left (as shown below).
Here you will see your ActiveCampaign API URL and API Key. You can also reset your API Key if you need. Now, copy the API URL and API Key and place them in the integration settings in Forminix (as shown below).
NOTE: You can enable the conditional logic option at the bottom of the panel if you want to use it.
Choose Contact List:
If you want to add subscribers from your WordPress to ActiveCampaign contact list, then you can select your preferred one from this section.
After providing the API URL and API Key, Forminix will fetch the contact lists from your ActiveCampaign account in an instant.
So, click on this field and choose a contact list from the dropdown menu to connect your ActiveCampaign with WordPress form.
Step 4: Mapping the Form Fields for ActiveCampaign User Profile Info
Our setup is almost done! After finishing up all the previous steps, we now have to do one more important thing, mapping the form fields.
Because the mapped form fields are going to be the profile information of users/ subscribers who will be added from our WordPress to ActiveCampaign contact list.
Here, in this tutorial we have chosen the “Email Address” field as the ActiveCampaign subscriber’s email address, “First Name” field as their first name and “Last Name” field as their last name.
Step 5: Saving All Settings and Testing WordPress ActiveCampaign Integration
At last, to finish up the setup we have to save all our settings that we have made so far. So, just click on the “Save Settings” button at the top right corner in Forminix plugin page.
Now let’s start testing our new ActiveCampaign integration setup and see how everything works.
Great! Our WordPress ActiveCampaign integration is working as properly as expected.
To see the user profiles in your contact list, simply navigate to the “Contacts” option at the top left side on your ActiveCampaign dashboard (as shown above).
Here you will see all your users and the mapped form info inside the contact list.
Do note that, if you encounter any issue and face any error, just backtrack to all the previous steps and check for mistakes (if any). Fix them and try again, you will be all good.
