Integrate MailerLite

Navigate to Settings → Third-party services → MailerLite from your Memberful dashboard, and click Connect to MailerLite.

API key

You'll be asked to enter the API key. To get the API key, navigate to Integrations → MailerLite API → Use → Generate new token in your MailerLite account, enter a name for your token, and then click Create token.

When you first connect to MailerLite, we'll import all members to a group named Memberful. Then, we'll automatically keep your subscriber list in sync by adding new members and updating existing members.

We will not remove members from your subscriber list if their subscription expires. If the member's subscription expires, the related Memberful field will be removed from their profile. In addition, if a member changes their email, we'll add the new email as a new subscriber, and remove the Memberful fields from the old email.

Send a targeted campaign

To send a targeted campaign click Create campaign within your MailerLite account, select the campaign type, then Save and continue.

Use custom field answers for segmentation and personalization

You can collect up to 5 custom fields with Memberful right after your members complete the checkout form.

Custom fields after checkout

Fields with pre-defined options (checkbox and dropdown) are perfect for segmenting subscribers in MailerLite—you could ask where they consume your content or what benefits they're interested in. Fields with free-form answers (text and comment) are great for personalizing email campaigns with things like nicknames, Discord/social handles, etc.
