Dear Community members
I am running my website outside of Shopify, but want my visitors to be able to sign up for my newsletter. The sign-up form currently points to an external newsletter platform. I want to point it Shopify so that I can use Shopify's email marketing tools. Do you know if that is possible?

This is an accepted solution.
Eunice here from the Shopify team in New Zealand, thanks for posting!
From your message, I'm learning you'd like to give your customers the ability to sign up to your [Shopify store] email subscriber list from your third-party site. Sadly this isn't possible at the moment, but I'd love to submit a feature request on your behalf. I can see a lot of merchants benefiting from this too! If you're happy to do this let me know and I'll send you an email to confirm your store. Also, to understand your situation a bit better, I'd like to ask what do you use your third-party site for? Is it a blog?
Now, I do have a workaround for you, but it involves using the third-party app Seguno and your customers being re-directed to your Shopify site. You mentioned you're already using a third-party app for a function similar to this, but it directs your customers to a signup page offered by the app, is that right?
With Seguno you're able to create a newsletter sign-up page for your Shopify store. You can then share the URL link of this page on your third-party site for customers to click and be redirected. Seguno is free to install and free to use up to 250 subscribers. If you have more than that, the fee to use the app is $10 USD per month. Does your third-party site allow you to create button links? That would make the journey more seamless for your customer.
Hope this helps a little. Feel free to sing out here if you have any questions, and let me know about that feature request.
I would highly appreciate if you could open a feature request for me
Gotcha, that totally makes sense! Thank you for sharing that with me.
I'll flick you an email to your Community email address now to submit the feature request. Sometimes emails from Shopify go into your junk file so be sure to check there too.
