GetResponse integration is designed to communicate with your GetResponse account via API. The contact information comes from the source connector and is then used to create a subscriber in the list (or campaign as they call them) of your choice. Before using it you must authorize The Customer Collector to access your GetResponse account.
Setting Up the Connection
The Connect to GetResponse form is very similar to that of AWeber. You start by clicking on the link at the top of that form and log in when prompted.
Enter your credentials and normally you’ll find yourself on GetResponse API key page. On that page, there should be already available an API key string for you. If not, just click on “Generate API key” button.
Now copy the key and paste it in the textbox on Connect to GetResponse page, then click on Connect button.
The Mapping Options
The options that appear on Edit Mapping form when the selected target is GetResponse are very similar to those of AWeber integration. The only missing field is Ad Tracking because there is no such feature in GetRespons API.
As for Tags field, the appearance and the user experience are identical to those of AWeber integration. The tags entered in this field will be assigned to any new subscriber collected via the current mapping, and added to existing subscribers.
This setting is available to GetResponse users in the list’s options page. To get there follow these steps:
- In your GetResponse account click on Contacts -> Lists to get to the Contact Lists page.
- Choose the list to work with and hover the 3 dots on the right.
- When a popup menu appears, click on Settings.
- Select the Subscription tab.
- Find API Subscriptions option, which looks like a small slider.
With this option you can change the single/double-optin setting for API subscriptions. If the option is activated, then the new subscribers will receive a confirmation request by email, which in my opinion makes the list more GDPR compliant than without it.
There is also another similar double-optin setting right above it, but this one is for web forms.
