You can override the default Lightspeed newsletter signup form with a Mailchimp signup form by following the following steps. First of all, make sure you turn on the option “Enable Mailchimp”. Then you’ll need to find the Mailchimp form action URL for the list you want to subscribe your users to. Please make sure this list doesn’t have any required/mandatory fields other than the email field. To find your Mailchimp form action URL, follow these steps:
- Go to your subscriber lists and click on the “Signup form” for this list
- Click on “Embedded form”
- In the Embedded form editor, click on “Show only required fields” to make sure the only field in the preview is the email field.
- In the code section labled “Copy/paste onto your site”, copy ONLY the content of the form tag action attribute between the quotation marks (for example, copy the following part in bold:
<form action="https://webshopapp.us18.list-manage.com/subscribe/post?u=1b63807d43dfe6394c2551c99&id=35b213dfe65" method="post" id="mc-embedded-subscribe-form" name="mc-embedded-subscribe-form" class="validate" target="_blank" novalidate>
- Paste the copied form action URL into the theme settings
