This guide will show you how to take your sweepstakes and integrate it with GetResponse so that you can start sending names and email addresses right into any GetResponse list.

1) Connect to GetResponse

When setting up your sweepstakes, go to the Connect Email Service section and click on GetResponse.

2) Input Credentials

In order to get your API Key, login to your GetResponse account and go to My Account > Account Details > API & OAuth.

Add your GetResponse API Key and click connect.

3) Choose a list

Once you successfully input your API Key, we will reveal your GetResponse lists. Simply choose a list from the dropdown menu and click connect.

4) You're connected

That's it, you're all set. Your sweepstakes is now connected to your GetResponse account, and we will send any names and email addresses right into that GetResponse list.


If you have connected your sweepstakes to GetResponse and email addresses are not being added to your list, these are the most common reasons as to why:

Email already in GetResponse list
The email address entered into the sweepstakes may already be in your GetResponse list, so it will not be added again.
Email already entered into ViralSweep
The email address entered into the sweepstakes has already been entered into the sweepstakes previously, so therefore it is not passed to GetResponse. This can happen if you set up your GetResponse integration after you have already entered the sweepstakes.
User did not opt-in
The user did not click the link in their double opt-in confirmation email that was sent to them. If they don't click that link, they won't be added to your list.
Delay in reporting
GetResponse is having a delay in reporting. Try checking again in a few hours.
