In order to pass certain field data through to Sendy you need to add custom fields within your Sendy account. These are the custom fields and names you will need to add in order for us to pass through this data:
To add custom fields, click on your list name in Sendy and click Custom Fields.
What data do you pass to Sendy?

- First Name
- Last Name
- Email Address
- Referral URL
If you have connected your promotion to Sendy and entrants are not being added to your campaign, these are the most common reasons as to why:
Email already in Sendy list
The email address entered into the promotion may already be in your Sendy list, so it will not be added again.
Email already entered into ViralSweep
The email address entered into the promotion has already been entered into the promotion previously, so therefore it is not passed to Sendy. This can happen if you set up your Sendy integration after you have already entered the promotion.
Certain fields not passing through to Sendy
We will only pass preset fields to Sendy which are mentioned above in the FAQ section. In order for all of these fields to pass through you need to add them to your Sendy list as custom fields.
