In this article, you’ll learn how to connect SendPulse with OptinMonster.

Our native SendPulse integration is available with a Plus or higher subscription.

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

Connect SendPulse

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 SendPulse, follow these steps:

  1. Before you start, you’ll need a SendPulse API Key. You can create and copy an API Key from your SendPulse account following these steps:
    1. Log in to your SendPulse dashboard and navigate to your Account Settings option from the dropdown menu next to your name and avatar.SendPulse account page.
    2. On the next page, select the API tab from the Account Settings Menu.
      SendPulse API tab.
    3. On the next page, you need to Activate the REST API.
      Activate SendPulse API.
    4. Next, click Save so that you can then see your API ID and Secret code.
      Save API Activation in SendPulse.
    5. After saving, you see the API ID and the API Secret. You will need to copy these values for their appropriate fields in the next step.
      Copy the SendPulse API credentials.
  2. Returning to OptinMonster, navigate to the Integrations view in the campaign builder, search for and select SendPulse.
    Select SendPulse to integrate with OptinMonster.
  3. Enter a SendPulse Account Name (*internal use only), the SendPulse Rest API ID and SendPulse Rest API Secret in the appropriate fields, then select the Connect to SendPulse button.
    Connect SendPulse with OptinMonster.
    *The SendPulse Account Name can be anything that helps you identify the specific integration within OptinMonster. It’s possible to add more than one SendPulse integration to your account and this is an easy way to differentiate between them when assigning integrations to individual campaigns.
  4. Required: Once the SendPulse integration has been connected select the SendPulse List you wish to send leads to from the Provider Lists field.
    Select the List to send leads to in SendPulse.
  5. Optional: You can also configure Double Opt-in for your leads.

  1. From the Integrations view in the campaign builder, select your SendPulse integration.
    Select your SendPulse integration in OptinMonster.
  2. Toggle the Enable Double Opt-in? option on.
    Enable double opt-in for SendPulse.
  3. Next, enter an email address into the *Sender Email field you wish to use for the confirmation emails.

Email Automations

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

The following guides from SendPulse 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 SendPulse integrations:

  • Previously submitted or already subscribed leads may be treated differently by SendPulse 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 TempMail.io or learn how to create unlimited unique email addresses from a single Gmail account.
  • If the lead is captured in SendPulse but you do not receive any automated emails it indicates the integration from OptinMonster to SendPulse is correct, and the issue is with the automated email configuration. SendPulse controls email automation exclusively. If you require assistance in troubleshooting email automations we recommend reaching out to SendPulse support directly.

Get started testing with the Live Site Inspector tool.

OptinMonster has transformed our business. Before integrating their optins, our clients saw a 2% conversion rate from web traffic, which is slightly above the standard for their industry. With the integration of OptinMonster’s lightbox popup, exit-intent technology, split testing, and other tools, our client’s conversion rates soared by an unprecedented 500%. They attracted substantially more customers while spending less on digital advertising. Their success propelled them to the top of their markets, outperforming national chains and other medical spas with much bigger marketing budgets. Our client’s success in their market has distinguished us in our own. We are now one of the most sought-after marketing firms in the industry of aesthetic medicine. We know that the integration of OptinMonster, more than any other tool or marketing strategy, has supported this growth and achievement.

Through OptinMonster’s exit-intent popups, we have more than doubled our sales conversion rate. Best of all is the compound effect of using OptinMonster over a long period of time—more conversions mean more customers, which means more word of mouth.
