Add or Remove a Signup Form on Your Facebook Page

This feature requires Manager user level or higher.

The Facebook integration lets you add signup forms to Facebook, so you can collect subscribers from your professional Facebook Page.

In this article, you'll learn how to add, customize, or remove a signup form on your Facebook Page.

Before You Start

Here are some things to know before you begin this process.

  • You'll need to set up the Facebook integration before you can add signup forms to your Pages.
  • You'll complete this process in your MailChimp account.
  • You can place a single signup form or different signup forms on multiple Facebook Pages that you're an administrator on.
  • MailChimp signup forms can only be placed on Facebook Fan or Business Pages that are managed through the Facebook Profile you've integrated with your MailChimp account. Learn more about Pages and Profiles.
  • You can place one signup form on each Facebook Page you manage.
  • Signup forms only appear on the desktop version of Facebook, and aren't accessible from Facebook's mobile app.
  • Signup forms have their own tab on your Facebook Page.
  • The Facebook signup form pulls directly from your MailChimp-hosted signup form. If you want to make changes to the fields on your form, you'll need to edit the signup form for your list in MailChimp.
  • The Facebook signup form works just like your MailChimp double opt-in hosted signup form. When someone fills out the form, we'll send an email that asks them to confirm their subscription.
  • When you remove a signup form, it removes it from your Facebook Page, but does not disconnect the Facebook integration

Add a Form to Your Facebook Page

To add a form to your Facebook Page, follow these steps.

  1. Log in to your MailChimp account.
  2. Click your profile name, and choose Account.
  3. Click Integrations.
  4. Click Facebook to open the integration details.
  5. Click the Page to use drop-down menu, and choose the Facebook Page where you'd like your signup form to appear.

Repeat this process for any other Facebook Pages you want to place signup forms on. When someone visits your Facebook Page, they'll see your MailChimp signup tab under your cover photo and under the Apps section on your page. If you have a lot of tabs, you may want to reorder them so your signup form tab appears.

Customize the Signup Form

The Facebook signup form uses the form fields includes the form fields set up for your list, and defaults to the design for your MailChimp-hosted signup form.
