About the Newsletter element
When browsing online, you may encounter forms that offer freebies or newsletters in return for your information. These forms, commonly known as signup forms, play a crucial role in helping stores expand by gathering data for future marketing and sales efforts. In GemPages, these forms are referred to as Newsletter elements.
To add the Newsletter to your page, you can follow the steps below:
Step 1: Access the GemPages Dashboard and select a page for editing or create a new one.
Step 2: Within the left sidebar, locate the Newsletter element under the Form section and add it to your preferred location on the page.
Click on the element to reveal the configuration on the left sidebar. This includes the Settings and Advanced tabs, which will be covered in upcoming sections of this article.
Configure the Settings tab
Action: Determine whether you prefer to guide users to a designated destination page or maintain them on the current page upon completing the form submission.
If you decide to send customers to another page, select “Open URL” from the dropdown and click on the “Pick Link” button to open the Link Picker panel.
Inside this panel, you have the following options:
- Lead visitors to another page within your store by exploring the Pages, Collections, Products, or Articles tabs.
- Navigate to a specific location on the same page using the Scroll to tab.
Upon configuring the link, select whether it should open in the current or new tab by utilizing the Target drop-down menu.
This section allows you to customize the message displayed after customers successfully fill in the form.
This section lets you edit the error message when customers can’t complete the form.
Configure the Advanced Tab
For more advanced customization, please navigate to the Advanced tab and follow the instructions in this article.
Access your Customers’ email list
Once a customer submits the form, their email address will be collected and stored in your Customer section under the Shopify Admin panel.
Go to Shopify Admin > Customers and see a list of all the emails subscribed through the signup form.
Turn On/Off Google ReCAPTCHA
As a spam protection technology, Google reCAPTCHA is turned on by default for all Shopify stores. This means customers will have to complete a reCAPTCHA test every time they want to submit a form.
If you want to, you can turn off this security policy to make form-filling faster for your customers.
Head to Shopify Admin > Online Store > Preferences, uncheck the two options under the Spam protection section, then hit “Save“.
