How to integrate the Mailchimp email subscription pop-up to Shopitag

Building an email adress list and sending out regular newsletters to your contact database is still one of the most affordable ways to promote your online shop, like we already discussed in a previous blogpost.

Of course the larger your email list the better your return will be. The most profitable solution is to directly invite the visitors of your webshop to subscribe, as they already show a clear interest in your products or services.

On Shopitag you can easily integrate the Mailchimp Popup Form to capture more email adresses.
We explain in a few easy steps how to implement this popup form on your shopitag store.

Make sure your shop is connected to your domain name

1. Log in on Shopitag

2. Select My Shop(s)

3. Go to configure setting.
Shopitag: link your domain name to your Shopitag webstore
Select the tab Preferences:
There you can see if you have your own domain name (like e.g. https://www.myshop.com)
Shopitag: connect your domain name
In case your domain name is not connected yet, you can easily link your domain to your Shopitag webstore by following the steps in this article.

Be aware that connecting your domain to your Shopitag webstore is only possible within a starter or a pro plan, not for freemium users.
