Installation & Configuration of our MailPoet Addon
This add-on is included with your purchase of the Basic, Plus, or Pro edition of MemberPress.
Step 1 - Download MailPoet plugin
Download and Install the MailPoet Newsletters plugin from WordPress.org. Then Activate the plugin.
Step 2 - Configure MailPoet settings
Go to your WordPress dashboard and navigate to MailPoet -> Settings.
Then complete all the information on that Settings page.
Step 3 - Install MemberPress MailPoet Add-on
In your dashboard head to MemberPress -> Add-Ons and click to install the MailPoet add-on. Once it's installed, activate it and you'll see the MailPoet integration available in the "Marketing" tab of the MemberPress Settings page.
Step 4 - Select Email List
Once MailPoet has been enabled, MemberPress will connect with MailPoet and you should see and select your list from the drop-down menu as seen below:
Once you have completed the steps above, by default, MemberPress will automatically add the email address for everyone who signs up through your membership registration form to your Global email list in MailPoet. MemberPress never removes a user from the Global list.
Step 5 - Setup Per Membership lists (Optional, but STRONGLY recommended)
The Per-Membership lists are a great way to automatically segment your members into different lists for marketing purposes.
Once you have MailPoet enabled, a new option becomes available under the "Advanced" tab of the Membership edit pages. This option allows you to select a list that only members who purchase that Membership should be added to. Members will be automatically added to or removed from this list depending on their current Subscription status for this Membership. This list must be different from the Global list you have specified in the Options, and should be different from other Per-Membership lists as well.
Here's how to enable and setup your Per-Membership lists:
Step 6 - Configure Signup Confirmation Settings
Login to your MailPoet account and navigate to the "Sign Up Confirmation" tab and set Enable signup Confirmation to No as seen below.
NOTE: If you're using MailPoet Premium's Sending Service, this may not be an option for you as the Signup Confirmation is required when using MailPoet's Sending Service. To avoid it, you would need to switch MailPoet to a manual SMPT sending service like SendGrid, MailGun, or Amazon SES.
This concludes all the necessary steps needed for this integration.
