How to Connect OptinMonster with MailPoet (Wysija)

OptinMonster offers seamless integration with MailPoet (Wysija) email marketing plugin for WordPress. Connecting OptinMonster to your MailPoet email list is very easy.

In this article, you’ll learn how to connect OptinMonster with your MailPoet account.

Before You Start

Here are some things to know before you begin:

  • The MailPoet integration is only available if your website is built on WordPress.
  • Be sure to install and activate the MailPoet (Wysija) WordPress plugin.
  • As a best practice, we recommend you also connect your campaigns to Monster Leads as a backup.

Connecting MailPoet

When you create a campaign in OptinMonster that you intend to collect leads with you’ll want to integrate with one or more services to send those leads to.

To send leads to MailPoet, follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to the Integrations tab in the campaign builder.
  2. Click Add New Integration.
  3. Search for and select MailPoet from the dropdown field.
  4. Add a unique label for easy identification (internal use only) and select the Connect to Mailpoet button.Connect to MailPoet
  5. Next, login to your WordPress admin and navigate to the OptinMonster > Campaigns screen to see your available campaigns.
  6. Select the Output Settings link for the campaign you wish to configure.
    Select the Output Settings link to edit your campaign in the WordPress admin.
  7. On the next screen, enable the Save Leads to MailPoet option and choose which MailPoet list you want to add leads to from the dropdown.
    Save leads to MailPoet in the campaign Output Settings.
  8. (Optional) You can also choose to save phone number to MailPoet, if you’ve added the phone number field to your OptinMonster campaign.
  9. When you are finished, click Save Changes.

Email Automations

To send emails automatically to new leads you’ll want to configure email automations within your MailPoet plugin.

The following guides from MailPoet may be helpful to get started:


How do I configure single or double opt-in?

See our guide on single vs. double opt-in for Mailpoet.

I’ve connected my integration and new leads are being added to my list, but OptinMonster shows 0 conversions for my campaign. Why?

Confirm that conversion tracking is turned on for the submit button in your campaign. See our guide on How to Enable Conversion Tracking.

No, unfortunately, it is not possible to use our shareable MonsterLink feature with any campaign that is integrated with MailPoet. Doing so will result in lost leads.

Do I need to use the OptinMonster plugin to subscribe leads to MailPoet?

Yes! It’s not possible to subscribe leads to MailPoet using OptinMonster without the OptinMonster plugin to control where on your site your campaign loads.


I’ve enabled the option to save phone numbers to MailPoet, but it isn’t working.

Please be sure you have completed these steps in MailPoet:

  1. Create a MailPoet form that contains a custom field configured to capture phone numbers.
    Add a custom field to your MailPoet form to capture phone numbers.
  2. Set the form to send leads to the same MailPoet List you’ve set your OptinMonster campaign to send leads to.
