Setting up MailChimp on your AirPOS e-commerce webstore
MailChimp is a free service that enables people that are interested in your work or products to subscribe to email marketing lists through a signup form which can be added to your e-commerce store. With this integration you will be able to send email newsletters, invitations, reminders and much more!
To set up MailChimp, you will need to add a snippet of code to the AirPOS backoffice from the MailChimp website. To find this you will need to create a free account by following the link below:
If you already have a MailChimp account, just sign in as usual.
Once signed in, you will see a screen similar to the image below.
Click on ‘Lists’ in the navigation top left hand side.
This brings you to the Lists page which will look like the following. There will be a list named after your company name that you entered during the signup process.
Simply click the list named after your company.
From here, select the “Signup Forms” link.
This is where you will find the link that will enable you to copy and paste the MailChimp code snippet to your AirPOS backoffice.
Click the ‘Embedded Forms’ link.
After clicking that, you should see the following. Please select the ‘Naked’ option.
Once clicked, you will see the Naked embedded form options.
Under ‘Form Options’ please be sure to select “Show only required fields”. This way the user will only need to add an email address.
Once you have finished editing the form options, copy the code ready to be posted into the backoffice.
Once copied, open the backoffice and make your way to the MailChimp Integration which can be found in the E-commerce section. Simply paste the code into the form provided and press “Update”.
If you want to remove the MailChimp form, simply select the remove button.
To see the MailChimp form, simply go to your e-commerce store and check the bottom footer.
