Add a Signup Form Link to my Store Website | How To

Created:   |   Updated:

Signup Forms provide a dedicated signup page where your prospective contacts can sign up to receive newsletters, promotions, and other future store announcements. ShippingEasy's Customer Marketing can quickly and easily create a signup form link that can then be share directly with customers, inserted into the navigation menu or used as a button on your store.

To get started, create a Signup Form link:

  1. Navigate to Signup Forms under the Marketing dropdown.
  2. Identify your desired store, and click the "Get Shareable URL" button.

  3. Click the Copy icon next to your URL.

    You can also preview your form by clicking the URL itself; your store name and store logo (both store variables) may be modified in your STORE SETTINGS page if needed.


You now have a signup form available to share with your prospective contacts. Next, find out the ways you can incorporate it into your website.

To insert the link into your navigational menu:

A common way to get visibility to your signup form is to add the option to signup directly within, or around your primary navigation bar of your store. While every platform is specific as to how to add navigation or menu items, most are fairly simple and involve no HTML input. All you need is your copied URL to insert as a new navigational option.

Example 1:

Example 2:

To add link as a button:

You can also add a button to your website to draw visitors to sign up for your form. Following the steps from above, copy your URL. Then, use a free button maker to make a button to embed on your website with your URL signup page as the button link.

Example 1:

Example 2:

    Thank you SO MUCH! This has been a much-needed feature for so long, and I'm so grateful I don't have to manually dump users from our Google form anymore. Thank you!!!

    Hello,

    This is great! Exactly what we needed.

    I know it was just released, but I cant find out how to automatically email customers that sign up for the newsletter.

    Thanks

    When will a pop up be available?

    Nathan, this kind of depends on your theme, but if you have a lightbox feature on your site, you can place the form page in an iframe while we wait for a popup option. I'd be happy to help at no cost.

    It would be great if you had an iframe that can be embedded.

    Hello Chad!

    Currently, as of this time, the sign-up form is only used to add customers to the Contact List. For now, you could filter them out by Prospects or Store if needed to add them to a list.

    I see that you submitted a feature request which is a great way to gain visibility for that feature and we appreciate all the feedback we get!

    Please feel free to reach out if you have any more questions for us!

    Hello Nathan!

    Currently, we do not have an ETA on when a pop-up version of the sign-up form would be available. With that being said,  I highly recommend you place a feature request in our forums for this option to become available! Posting in these forums will allow you to be notified when this option is released by our development team. Here is how to post in our Feature Request forum:

    How do I share my feedback with ShippingEasy?

    Will - there is an iframe option? That is exactly what I need. I can handle the pop up feature within my theme on my website. I just need the iframe code

    I've placed a feature request.

    How do I find out if my theme has a lightbox feature?

    Roseann, you will need to generate your form (following the instructions above) to get your form code.  Once you have that link, replace the LINK_HERE from the following code. You can also edit the style settings.

    <iframe src="LINK_HERE" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" width="100%" height="860" frameborder="0">

    Nathan, Lightbox is a jquery plugin that opens images in a styled "popup."  For an example, visit https://fancyapps.com/fancybox/3.  Do you have any images or videos on your site that can be displayed this way? Many Shopify themes have some sort of Lightbox.  For me, I can trigger any link to open in a lightbox with a line of code with <a> tags, like this:

    
    <a data-fancybox="gallery" href="big_1.jpg"><img src="small_1.jpg"></a>
