Create a registration form, connect that to an email marketing solution, and start building your list. Well if it was that easy everyone would have started using that solution. But what if, it is.
With WP User Frontend's MailPoet 3 integration it is easier than ever to start collecting emails of your customers and send them automated/non-automated emails that are going to build your brand.
WP User Frontend has always played nicely with other plugins. We are keeping that tradition by integrating WP User Frontend with the latest version of MailPoet Newsletter (formerly known as MailPoet 3)
The integrating process is really as simple as possible for the end user. It is as simple as enabling a toggle button. This integration will connect the registration form that your users will fill up and send that information to the subscriber's list in the MailPoet plugin.
Please Note: You need to have both plugins. Including MailPoet Newsletter and WP User Frontend.
