  • Create a New Key
  • I want to setup custom permissions for this API key > Lists + Contacts

Custom Field Sync Support

We support the syncing of Custom Fields for Omnisend through our Custom Field Sync feature, you can set this up via the Custom Field Mapping button when setting up the integration.

Sync Phone Numbers

If you plan to include a phone number field, make sure the phone numbers are submitted in a format accepted by Omnisend, otherwise the sync will fail.

Using a custom field, you can use regex validation to verify the phone number submitted. It should include the country code + the correct number of digits.

Set up a custom field to collect phone numbers

Sending to Subscribers to Omnisend

Before you can send subscribers to Omnisend the list must already exist in your Omnisend account. Once the list exists you can select it when setting up a Subscribe action.

Testing Your Omnisend Integration

In order to test if emails successfully send to Omnisend you need to do the following:

  • Have a competition created with a Subscribe action
  • Ensure that this action is linked to an existing list in Omnisend
  • Enter the action manually from your competition dashboard
  • The action will become invalidated (since we automatically invalidate admin actions)
  • Go to the Actions tab for that competition, then make your action valid
  • It should appear in Omnisend within a few minutes
