The Newsletter Sign-up Form block lets you add a Newsletter Sign-up form to any post or page.
To use the Newsletter Sign-up Form block, Jetpack’s Contact Form feature must be enabled. This should be enabled by default, but if it’s not, you can enable it as described here.
Adding the Newsletter Sign-up Form block
You can add the Newsletter Sign-up Form block to any post or page, by selecting it from the Jetpack section of the block picker:
See our Jetpack Blocks page for more information on adding Jetpack blocks.
Once you’ve added the block to a post or page your visitors will be able to start signing up for your newsletter right away. Also, the Newsletter Sign-up Form block is highly customizable, including the opt-in field, so feel free to adjust your new form to fit your site.
Adding an Opt-in Field to any Jetpack Form
Jetpack also gives you the ability to add opt-in fields to any form. This allows you to turn any Jetpack Form into a newsletter sign-up form.
Start by creating a new Newsletter Sign-up Form block, or selecting an existing Newsletter Sign-up Form.
Once selected, press the “Add email permission request” button under the block settings on the right. This will add a new field to your form that opts-in users by default.
You can also modify the opt-in text or convert it to an opt-in checkbox. Select the opt-in field and modify the “Permission to email” dropdown on the right. This will give you the ability to change the field to a opt-in checkbox.
Sending Emails with Creative Mail
Once you’ve set up your form, visitors will be able to opt-in to receiving emails from you. The feedback you receive from these forms will be saved in the Jetpack Feedback section of the wp-admin. Users who have opted-in to receiving new emails from you will have the meta field
email_marketing_consent set to
1. You can export your feedback as a csv for later user.
We suggest that you use Creative Mail which is directly integrated into the Newsletter Sign-up Form block to send your subscribers emails directly. Creative Mail by Constant Contact can be installed from the WordPress Directory with the click of a single button, right on the Newsletter Sign-up Form block settings.
Once Creative Mail is installed you can go through the onboarding process which will automatically import your subscribers so you can start building email campaigns right away. Creative Mail also directly integrates into your WordPress so it is quite easy to send new posts and even WooCommerce products to your subscribers.

This feature is activated by default. While there are no controls for it within the primary Jetpack settings area, it can be deactivated any time by following this guide.

For activity tracking (detailed below): IP address, WordPress.com user ID, WordPress.com username, WordPress.com-connected site ID and URL, Jetpack version, user agent, visiting URL, referring URL, timestamp of event, browser language, country code.
If Akismet is enabled on the site, the contact form submission data (IP address, user agent, email address, site URL, and comment) is submitted to the Akismet service (also owned by Automattic) for spam checking.The actual submission data is stored in the database of the site on which it was submitted and is emailed directly to the owner of the form (i.e. the site author who published the page on which the contact form resides). This email will include the submitter’s IP address, timestamp, name, email address, website, and message.
The IP address is included as an abuse prevention measure. And for sites using Akismet, it is required for providing proper spam defense.
