That’s all, you have successfully connected your OptinMonster campaign to MailPoet!


A: 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.

Q: How do I configure single or double opt-in?

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

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

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

Q: Is it possible for me to add a phone field to my campaign?

A: No, at this time our native MailPoet integration does not support the phone field. You can still collect phone numbers by using a MailPoet form and shortcode instead.
