Merge Fields

We support having up to five merge fields on an email signup link. Think of a merge field as just another input on your link to collect information, like a first and last name.

Note: Make sure to test your email signup link. If you receive an error about merge tags, make sure that the required fields in Mailchimp and Campsite match each other. If the "First Name" field is required on your Mailchimp signup form, it has to be required on your Campsite email link.
