Creating a newsletter signup form

Creating a newsletter signup form is fast and easy in Shopgate!

This article outlines how to create a newsletter signup form for your apps and mobile website.

 

Getting started

A newsletter signup form allows you to collect emails and some other information from your newsletter subscribers. This is what your newsletter signup will look like in its final form 🙃  :

While the email template in step 3 is not editable, you can customize your Signup Page, Success Page, and Confirmation Page. The color of these pages is automatically calculated from your shop color.

 

 

Creating a newsletter signup form

To create a signup form (and the other pages) for your newsletter,

  1. Log into your Shopgate Admin
  2. Navigate to  Marketing >  Newsletter Subscription.
  3. Click the tab "Configuration".
 


Here you will see the fields you can configure in your newsletter signup process:

  • Show (optional or required) or hide a pre-defined field
  • Add a custom input field using a text box or a drop-down
  • Customize your Signup Page, Success Page, and Confirmation Page with a title and content
  • You can also enter an email to receive notifications when someone signs up for your newsletter.

Click Save. For more details, please refer to this table.

That's it! Now you have created a newsletter signup form for your apps and mobile website.

 

 

Displaying your form

After you have created a newsletter signup form, don't forget to promote it to your customers! You can do so by displaying a QR code anywhere you want!

Here are the steps to do so:
  1. Click the tab "Overview" to find a QR code for your main signup form.

  2. To print, click on a QR code to reveal the print version or right-click to download.

If you have configured different store locations, you'll find a QR code for each of your stores on this page. Display a store-specific QR code in store or on the packaging to see which store gets the most signup!

You can also display your newsletter signup form on your apps and mobile website. Here is how.

 

  

Using the signup data

 

You'll find the number of signups and the subscriber information you have collected via the signup form by clicking the tab "Signups".

 

 

You can also export your subscriber information by clicking the button "Export as a CSV file".

To use this data, simply upload the CSV file to your email marketing or push notification service.
