Recommend service to capture sign up emails

OscarRyz

This should be trivial but I can't find a simple service to capture user email on a form.

Something to put on the post form:

<form action="https://someService.com/myuniqueid">

And I get the signup by email or access in their system.

Can anyone recommend something like this?

    I used https://formspree.io/ for couple of project and it was working like you're describing it and just forwarded all form submissions to specified email address

    <form action="https://formspree.io/[email protected]">

    But I see that they added a lot of new features since then, so not sure if it still works the same way...

    Shameless plug - checkout https://formflare.io/

    It does exactly what you're asking for, stores your form submissions and also emails you the form submission. I have also built a zapier integration (invite only), which means you can push your form submissions to all kinds of other services, like slack, google sheets...etc.

    Almost all email marketing providers have this, you create the forms in their dashboard and then copy the code to your website. I use SendinBlue, but MailChimp, Aweber, Constant Contact, and all the rest do it as well. You can find a longer list on my website here.

    It captures the information and stores it under each person's contact.

    If you use Wordpress, you can set up a form so that you get an email when the person submits it. I use WPForms lite, which is the free version.

      Thanks!

      I'm singing up for Mailchimp.

    I am trying out Convertkit.com. They provide an easy way to create your signup form and embed it or what I did, build your own form and call their API to capture signups.
