MailChimp Integration Form Shortcode

Adding a Form To Your Popup

You can add a signup form to any popup by adding this shortcode inside your popup:

[pum_sub_form list_id=""]

The list_id will be the id for your list that you want the user to be added to. To get the list ID of your list:

  1. Go to your lists in MailChimp.
  2. Click on the list you want users to be added to.
  3. Once on the list page, click the Settings Navigation Item which will reveal a drop down.
  4. Click the List Name and Defaults option from the drop down.
  5. Once the page loads, the list ID is shown on the right side of the page.
  6. Enter in your list ID into the shortcode, and you are all ready to accept email sign ups in your popup.
