How to add a newsletter registration popup form to your store
*Important: * Please note that MailChimp stores a cookie for one year to prevent a pop-up from being seen repeatedly after closing or completing it. If you are going to test the pop-up window in your store, you may need to delete the cookies from your browser, use a different browser or open an incognito window of the browser to be able to view it several times, especially if you make changes in it and want to view them directly in your store.
Before you start, make sure you have connected your store to Mailchimp.
Connect to your Mailchimp account and in the Dashboard section, select Integrations > Custom Website
Enter the URL of your store, select the audience to which you want the contacts to be added and click Get Code
Copy the code generated by Mailchimp. You will place it in your store in the box you find in your Administration Panel > Theme Options > Other Options > Insert code at the end of head.
Go back to Mailchimp and click Check Connection. If you placed the code correctly, you will see the success message.
You are now ready to create a popup form for your store!
Pop-up registration forms help you connect with the people who visit your website.
Use the pop-up form editor to quickly design a pop-up form and customize it with a special offer or discount so, you can increase your audience and sales.
The pop-up form editor is where you customize that form. To access the editor, follow these steps:
Once you have your account, go to the Create (pencil icon) and in the pop-up window, select Signup Forms from the list.
Select the Pop-up form tab and the audience to which you want to add the customers who are registering.
Next, customize the look of your popup form.
