Aweber WPForms Integration – Collect Email Subscribers using WPForms and Aweber in WordPress

In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to collect email subscribers with the Aweber WPForms integration. In this case, we’ll use WPForms to collect emails then they will be sent to our Aweber email list. You’ll also be able to enable a double opt-in or a double confirmation for all your email subscribers. 

This form can also be used in the WordPress editor (Gutenberg) via a shortcode or block, and I’ll also show you how to use it on your Elementor website. 

Note: the digits in brackets e.g. (00:02) indicate the minutes of that exact explanation in the video so you can easily jump to that section and follow along.

What You’ll Need

For this tutorial, you’re going to need the Pro version of the WPForms plugin.

You’re also going to need an Aweber account with WPForms to be able to integrate your WPForms plugin with your AWeber account.

Otherwise, let’s get started!

Create a Form using WPForms

With your WPForms pro plugin ready, on your WordPress dashboard, go to WPForms > All Forms then click Add New to create a new form, you can choose one from the form templates provided and customize it (00:43)

Go to the Fields option;

Under Label select Simple, then check the Enable Email Confirmation option.

Under the Advanced Options, set Field Size to medium, check the Hide Labels option for the Name and Email, then add Placeholder Texts instead, that is; Your Name’, ‘Your Email’ and ‘Confirm your email’. Check the Hide Sub-Labels option too (02:06).

Under Settings;

Give your form a name under Form Name, and you can also give it a description, you can also change the Submit Button text to ‘Subscribe” for example (02:26). And there are also some additional settings that you can edit to your preference, like enabling antispam, Ajax, etc.

Under Notifications;

You can enable the option to receive a notification whenever someone uses a form. However, let’s disable this option since Aweber sends a notification whenever someone subscribes anyway.

Under Confirmations; select Message for the Confirmation Type, then type in the message you would like your subscribers to see, for example; ‘Thanks for subscribing to my newsletter. Check your email to confirm’ (03:24)
