OptinMonster offers seamless integration with Ontraport email marketing service. Connecting OptinMonster to your Ontraport email list is very easy.

In this article, you will learn how to connect OptinMonster with your Ontraport account.

Our native Ontraport integration is available with a Pro or higher subscription.
All subscription plans can add custom forms using the Form Embed block.

Before you start, as a best practice we recommend you also connect your campaigns to Monster Leads as a backup.

Connect Ontraport

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 Ontraport, follow these steps:

  1. Before you start, you’ll need an Ontraport API App ID and API Key. You can generate and copy an App ID and API Key from your Ontraport account following this guide.
  2. Navigate to the Integrations view in the campaign builder, search for and select Ontraport.
    Select Ontraport to integrate with OptinMonster.
  3. Enter an Ontraport Account Name (*internal use only), the Ontraport App ID, and Ontraport API Key in the appropriate fields, then select the Connect to Ontraport button.
    Connect OptinMonster with Ontraport.
    *The Ontraport Account Name can be anything that helps you identify the specific integration within OptinMonster. It’s possible to add more than one Ontraport integration to your account and this is an easy way to differentiate between them when assigning integrations to individual campaigns.
  4. Required: Once the Ontraport integration has been connected select the Ontraport Tag you wish to assign to leads from the Provider Tags field.
    Select the Tag to assign leads to in Ontraport.
  5. Optional: You can also assign Follow-Up Sequences if any are available for the Tag you’ve selected in the previous step.

Email Automations

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

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


We strongly recommend you test the optin form before publishing your campaign to ensure it is working as you expect.

Before you begin, please be aware of the following details when testing Ontraport integrations:

  • Previously submitted or already subscribed leads may be treated differently by Ontraport than new leads. For this reason, we recommend using a completely unique email address each time you test submit your campaign’s form. You can use a free tool like or learn how to create unlimited unique email addresses from a single Gmail account.
  • If the lead is captured in Ontraport but you do not receive any automated emails it indicates the integration from OptinMonster to Ontraport is correct, and the issue is with the automated email configuration. Ontraport controls email automation exclusively. If you require assistance in troubleshooting email automations we recommend reaching out to Ontraport support directly.

Get started testing with the Live Site Inspector tool.
