ActiveCampaign Mailing List API Integration Pro 2.5.18+

This documentation page assumes you have read over the Mailing List Integration Overview page. If you have not yet read it, please do so now. We also assume that you have an ActiveCampaign account already, along with mailing list(s) already created. This integration requires that you have Freeform Pro. If you currently have Freeform Lite, you can purchase an upgrade to Freeform Pro.

ActiveCampaign integration includes support for the following:

  • Field mapping to all standard and custom fields.
  • Duplicate check on Contact email address (will update other details if it matches instead of creating a new contact).
