Mailster Integration with eForm

Starting version 3.0, eForm supports out-of-the-box integration with MyMail Newsletter plugin. To get started, please follow the procedure.

#1: Install Mailster – Email Newsletter Plugin

MailSter (previously MyMail) is a great plugin for sending out and managing newsletter from inside your WordPress dashboard. You can purchase it from here and install like any WordPress plugin.

#2: Setup eForm Form Integration:

Like any integration, Mailster integration works on per form basis.

Mailster integration settings
  • Edit/Create the form you want to integrate with Mailster.
  • Go to Integration > Mailster.
  • Enable the integration.
  • Check the list you want the subscriber to get assigned to.
  • Optionally overwrite existing subscriber info (like first name, last name).
  • Save the form and you are done.
Mandatory Primary Elements

Also make sure you have the Other Form Elements > Primary Email  somewhere in your form.

#3: Sending additional data with custom fields

It is possible to send additional data for subscribers with custom fields.

First go to WP Admin > Newsletter > Settings > Subscribers and add your custom fields.

In the image above we have created three custom fields.

  • company.
  • city.
  • foo.

Note down the tags, which we will need for the integration.

Now back at eForm, go to CONFIG > INTEGRATION > MAILSTER and first enable Send additional data as custom fields.

Finally map eForm fields to any of the custom field tags we’ve created in the previous step.

#4: Testing out:

MyMail-Subscribers

Now simply submit the form once with a non-existing email address. If everything is setup correctly, then you will see the email address being subscribed and added to the mentioned lists.
