You will copy and paste those values into the appropriate fields in OptinMonster.

Step 3: Get iPost Sub-domain Value

As of now, the subdomain only has two options: g001 and g002. It’s assigned by iPost and part of the user’s login URL.

You can read more about this on iPost’s Site: https://ipost.readme.io/reference#endpoint

Paste your sub-domain values in the OptinMonster Appropriate fields

Step 4 – Add a Personal Label

Once you’ve pasted your Authorization Code into the provided field, give your iPost Integration a label and click Connect with iPost.

Add the registration code generated from iPost into the provided field and give your integration a unique label before selecting the Connect with iPost button.

Step 5 – Select a List

OptinMonster will now connect to your iPost account and fetch your email lists. Choose an email list you want users to subscribe to.

Step 6 – Configure Lead Options (optional) and Lead Journeys

Lead Options
We can work with iPost Data Tables. We will pass the following fields email, firstname, lastname, phone, ipaddress, source. They must be formatted exactly as shown here, and they must all exist in the table. If all of the fields are not present or formatted correctly (no spaces, all lowercase) the API request will fail, and no lead data will be added. The source field will always be OptinMonster.

Lead Journeys
Journey Automations (entitled “Lead Journeys” in the Builder) allow iPost users to create workflows to be triggered when a lead is added. Please contact iPost for any assistance in setting up your triggers.

That’s all, you have successfully connected OptinMonster to your iPost account!

Now that you’ve added your integration, you can further target your campaigns by using Geo-location Targeting!


FAQs

Q: Is it possible for me to add a Phone Field to my campaign?

A: Yes! You can add a phone field. Check out How to Capture Phone Numbers with OptinMonster here.


Q: What if I want to additional fields to my form?

A: You can do this using our Custom HTML integration, rather than our native iPost integration shown above. When creating your iPost form to add to the Custom HTML integration, you’ll want to be sure to switch the button type to HTML in iPost.

This will ensure your button contains all of the necessary HTML needed for your form to work as expected.
