How to create a SendinBlue subscribe form in WordPress
Creating a SendinBlue subscribe form in WordPress requires 4 simple steps. You’ll find them below, and it won’t take 15 minutes to put it together. Let’s get going!
1. Get set up with Zapier.
Next, create an account with Zapier themselves. Now you’re ready to get started!
2. Make a Zap!
Integrations between applications handled by Zapier are called Zaps. We’ll be creating a Zap that will connect Ninja Forms with your target service. It’s super simple. Just log into your Zapier account and click “Make a Zap!
3. Set up Ninja Forms as your Trigger App
Just search Ninja Forms in the Trigger App search bar to find us:
Leave “New Form Submission” set as the Trigger and Save + Continue. You’ll be shown a series of 6 steps to complete. By following this guide, you’ve already done the first one. In a nutshell, you’re taking the Zapier webhook provided in their Step 4 and pasting it into the Zapier action of the form you want to use:
After pasting in the webhook, be sure to click Done, Publish, then Preview and Submit your form before continuing in Zapier (Steps 5 and 6). Be sure to enter data into each field before you submit, even if it’s not a required field!
When you finish this and continue in Zapier, they will run a test to confirm the connection. They’ll offer troubleshooting advice in the odd chance that it fails. After a successful test, it’s time to move on!
4. Set Up SendinBlue as your Action App
Setting up your Action App is very similar to the Trigger App we setup above. Search and select SendinBlue the same way we did Ninja Forms in the previous step. Once selected, you’ll be presented with the option to “Add Subscriber”. Select this and Save+Continue.
Next you’ll be prompted to connect to your SendinBlue account. Click this and you’ll be presented a modal window. Enter your SendinBlue API key here to link Zapier with your account. There’s a handy-dandy link right there in the modal window that will take you right to the account page containing your key:
Note: In testing here, it’s the v2 key that you want. I couldn’t get the v3 key to work.
Now run a test to confirm the link, and once again Save+Continue.
All that’s left to do now is select your List and map the fields of your form to the settings for that list. That’s no more than toolbox/chevron to the right of each setting field.
That done, you’ll once again test the connection by sending test data to your account. Just click “Send Test to SendinBlue”, and Zapier does the lifting for you.

If you followed these 4 steps, you now have WordPress connected to SendinBlue. Congratulations!
One of the most beautiful things about WordPress is being able to take the stock experience and make it truly your own. Thousands on thousands of plugins offer nearly limitless integration to products and services produced by people all over the world.
It’s a big world though, and the WordPress.org repository can’t possibly cover it all. That’s where Zapier comes into play, connecting you to apps that don’t have an official plugin yet. We’re proud that your WordPress forms in part make that connection possible.
We hope you enjoy your new connection! What integration would you like to see a tutorial for next?
