Adding Form Validation

Being able to verify an entire list in one go is a benefit to any business - but being able to make sure emails come in verified to begin with? That's the real trick.

With form validation you can ensure that emails on your page are verified before they ever reach your contact list. Follow the steps below to install Form Validation on your website.

Step 1: Head over to your Forms tab on the left hand side of the emailable app


Step 2: Click the "New Form" button


Step 3: Name your form and add your full store domain to the list of "whitelisted domains"

This step is to tell the form we're creating which domain we want to verify emails for - this way no one else can use your form to validate THEIR website!

Enter your website domain with the http:// or https:// in front like the example below.

Then press "Save"


Step 4: Once the form has been created - you should see a page of blank statistics (as we haven't installed the form yet)


Scroll down past this to the Embed Script. Copy your embed script code.


Step 5: Head over to your website theme code and open the page responsible for your main website:

Shopify - theme.liquid

BigCommerce - default.html

Once there do a search on the page for the html tag </body> and paste your embed script ABOVE the </body> tag on its own line to include it in the body of your website.

This code will now validate any and all newsletter boxes, popup signups and email input forms on the page.

Click Save and you're done!

Congratulations! You've installed form validation on your website.

To REMOVE form Validation when you no longer want it simply follow the steps in reverse.

Access your Shopify theme.liquid or BigCommerce default.html, and find the line in your <body> grouping where you pasted the code. It should be immediately above the </body> tag where the above instructions indicate placement. 

Once you've found it - it's perfectly acceptable to delete, or backspace the code in its entirety and save.
