Section 2: How to Create An Application For Sendloop Subscription Form?

Before creating a Facebook app, you will need to generate the subscription form for your mail list in your Sendloop account. To do this, login to your Sendloop account, go to the overview page of your subscriber list and click “Website Integration” link. You can customize your subscription form on this page and then once you click “Generate” button, the HTML code for your subscriber list will be displayed to you. Copy the HTML code and create a file under your website for this form. You will use this URL below when creating your Facebook app.
