The addon Newsletter subscriptions enables a sign-up form in the footer of your site inviting your store visitors to subscribe to your newsletters. The addon is included in all X-Cart editions (Business, Multivendor and Ultimate) and comes preinstalled. If it is not, follow the instructions from Activating and Deactivating Addons to enable it.
The “Newsletter subscriptions” addon enables a subscription form in the site footer where your site visitors can submit their email addresses to subscribe to your store newsletter.
All email addresses submitted via this form are added to your store’s list of newsletter subscribers available in the Sales channels -> Newsletters section of the Admin area where they can be managed by the administrator.
If the default Newsletter subscriptions addon is linked to Mailchimp the subscriber email addresses submitted via the subscription form will no longer be stored to a list within X-Cart, but will be handled via Mailchimp, provided that your X-Cart store is connected to your Mailchimp account via the addon settings, and the Mailchimp Integration is configured properly.
The Newsletters section of the Admin area allows a store admin to add new emails to the subscribtion list and export existing subscribers into a .csv file.
To add a new email to the list click Create button and type in the required email.
To export the subscribers list select the required emails from the list and click Export selected: CSV or don’t select anything and click Export all: CSV if you need to export all the emails.
