All WordPress theme developers realize that email marketing is an important component of internet marketing. That is why most theme developers include at least one email marketing tool as the default feature. Jupiter X, an Elementor-based WordPress theme developed by Artbees, comes with Mailchimp as the default email marketing tool. You need to configure your theme before being able to use Mailchimp.
Jupiter X itself is a WordPress theme that is bundled with several Elementor add-ons. Mailchimp integration is powered by Raven and JetPlugins. Depending on how you will display your email subscription form, whether via a Raven or JetPlugins, here is how to integrate Jupiter X with Mailchimp.
Getting the Mailchimp API key
You need an API key to connect Jupiter X with Mailchimp. To get one, login to the Mailchimp dashboard and go to your profile by clicking your profile icon on the upper-right corner and select Profile.
Click Extras and select API keys.
You can use an existing API key if you already have one. Otherwise, you can create a new API key by clicking the Create A Key button.
Copy the API key you have just created on the API key column. To make it easy for you to identify your subscription form, we suggest you add a label to your API key.
Integrating Jupiter X with Mailchimp via Raven
Raven is an Elementor add-on developed by Artbees. This add-on is developed exclusively for Jupiter X. It adds about 26 widgets to your Elementor, including the Form widget which you can use to collect email subscribers using Mailchimp. However, you need to integrate Raven with Mailchimp first. To do so, open the Elementor Settings page (Elementor -> Settings). Click the Raven tab and scroll down to the Mailchimp section. Paste your API key and click the Save Changes button.
Most Jupiter X website templates have an email subscription form powered by Raven. If you use a website template that already has an email subscription form, you can simply edit the theme part (footer, header, a page) using Elementor. For example, we use the Adopt Pet 2 website template which has an email subscription form on its footer. So, edit the footer with Elementor.
On the Elementor editor, click the Form widget handle to turn the widget into an editing mode.
Go to the left panel and open the Settings option. Add Mailchimp on the Add Action field.
A new option (Mailchimp) will appear afterward, open this option. On the API key section, leave it to default. Select your Mailchimp audience (formerly list).
On the Field Mapping section, open the existing field and select a Mailchimp field (select Email if your form consists only of the email field). Also select the form field (cannot be set to None). If you want to edit your form by adding more fields, simply click the ADD ITEM button.
Click the UPDATE button to apply your new changes.
Integrating Jupiter X with Mailchimp via JetPlugins
In addition to Raven, you can also integrate your Jupiter X with Mailchimp using JetPlugins. Two JetPlugins members that support integration with Jupiter X are JetElements and JetPopup. If you want to integrate Jupiter X via JetElements, you can use the Subscribe widget. While to integrate Jupiter X with Mailchimp via JetPopup, you can use the Mailchimp widget.
Same as Raven, you need to integrate JetElements with Mailchimp before being able to use the Subscribe widget. To integrate JetElements with Mailchimp, go to JetPlugins -> JetElements Settings. Click the Integrations tab and paste your Mailchimp API key and Mailchimp list ID to the respective fields.
Go to JetPlugins -> JetPopup Settings. Paste your Mailchimp API key to the available field and click the Save Settings button.
You can now use the JetElements’ Subscribe widget and the JetPopup’s Mailchimp widget to create an email subscription form on your Jupiter X theme.
