Motion theme: Pop-up on front page

7 1 0

Hi all,


I have a question regarding pop-ups and exit pops. I would like to make some kind of exit pop on my site where my customers can get a free e-book if they sign up to my newsletter.


I use the motion theme, and I noticed that it's possible to make a pop-up in the customization section.


However, I have some questions.

  1. I can't see the tools to edit the details on when and where the pop-up will show. I would like to create the pop-up so that it only shows if customers move the cursor towards closing the tab. Would this be possible to do without using an app?
  2. How would I integrate a pop-up made in the motion theme with Mailchimp, so that whoever sign up they get the automated e-mail with the e-book straght away? 

Thank you

1. If you are a coder then maybe it's possible, by triggering the popup by arrow coordinates, but thats really advanced stuff. If you meant browser closing tag.
2. You can search for other popup apps, to send automated e-mail, you can try this -
or make it by yourself, using API and Javascript.

Hi @opheliainvest,


You can use the pop-up provided by Mailchimp, and set it to display on exit:




There are 2 ways to add the Mailchimp pop-up to your website.

1. Without any app: copy the code snippet generated by Mailchimp, and paste it at the bottom of your theme.liquid file, right above the closing </body> tag.

2. Install ShopSync, connect it to your Mailchimp account, and then all you need is to hit the Publish button on the pop-up settings page - it will add the code snippet automatically.


Hope that helps,
