If you haven’t yet created your MailerLite account, we recommend following this guide on how you can get started with MailerLite. Afterwards, visit this MailerLite signup page to create your first account and finish setup. Then you can continue following this tutorial.
For sake of this tutorial, we have created a custom contact form. With this form we will collect user inputs and send them from our WordPress to MailerLite subscriber group with each submission.
The reason for collecting specific form field inputs is to use them as subscriber profile info in our MailerLite subscriber list.
However, you can create and use any type of form you need in this regard.
Step 1: Enable the WordPress MailerLite Integration
On your WordPress admin panel, navigate to the “Modules” menu of the Forminix plugin. Then find and enable the MailerLite integration toggle as shown below.
Step 2: Add Integration in Form Settings
Now, go to your form’s settings page and navigate to the “Integrations” tab on the top right hand.
On that page, you will see the “Add Integration” button at the bottom of the page. Click on it and a popup will appear. From there, select the newly enabled “MailerLite” integration.
Step 3: Add MailerLite API Key and Subscriber Group
In the “MailerLite Integration” panel you will see two fields. They are the “API Key” field and the “Subscriber Group” field. Let’s take a look them and fill them up.
Here, you must provide the MailerLite API Key to be able to send users from your WordPress to MailerLite subscriber group.
To get the API Key, navigate to the “Integrations” option on the left-hand side of your MailerLite dashboard.
Then on the next page, click on the API option under “MailerLite API” (as shown below).
It will take you to the “Developer API” page/section where you can create your API token. Simply click on the “Generate new token” button and a popup will appear.
Then, enter your token name (anything you want) and hit the “Create token” button.
That’s it, your token is instantly created. Click the “copy” button in the popup and your API key will be copied. Then, simply paste it in the API Key field 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 Subscriber Group:
You can select a subscriber group of your MailerLite account where your users/subscribers will be added. Right after providing the MailerLite API Key, Forminix will fetch the subscriber groups from your MailerLite account immediately.
So, click on this field and choose your desired subscriber list from the dropdown menu to connect your MailerLite with WordPress form.
Step 4: Map the Form Fields for MailerLite User Profile Info
We are almost done! At this stage of our configuration, we have to map our form fields.
Because the mapped fields will be used as profile information of the users/subscribers whom we will be adding from our WordPress to MailerLite subscriber group.
For this tutorial we have chosen the “Email Address” field as the MailerLite subscriber’s email address, “First Name” field as their first name and “Last Name” field as their last name.
