Signup Forms

Signup Forms are an easy and powerful way for you to continue to grow your business while collecting new subscribers. Once you have gathered a contact's name and email address you can then use ShippingEasy's powerful campaign capability to market to your new audience. Links to Signup Forms can be inserted into your stores' website or shared on social media.

Customer Marketing signup contacts are single opt-in by default. This means each time someone fills out and submits your signup form, we will automatically add them to your primary contact list as Available for Marketing. Learn how to create a list of available contacts. This makes it easier for people to join your list, which can be helpful if you're selling a product or capturing customers on the go. Double opt-in is not currently supported with the Customer Marketing feature.

Add a Signup Form Link to Store Website

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 shared 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. Identify your desired store, and click the "Get Shareable URL" button.

  2. Click the Copy icon next to your URL.

  3. 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.

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 the 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.

Add a 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.
