It's easy to enable email notifications with Unbounce, but for the time being, these notifications will be Unbounce branded. Thankfully, it's fairly straight-forward to work around this using our WebHook integration.
To send unbranded email notifications with Unbounce, there are three major steps:
1. Write a script to parse Unbounce form submissions.
You can use any language supported by the server you'll be using in step #2 below.
For your convenience, we've written and shared a sample PHP script to parse incoming Unbounce form submissions and send an email. It is fully commented, so you can modify it to suit your needs. Should you decide to use this script, you should have a developer audit it to ensure it is up to your security standards.
2. Host your custom script.
You'll need access to a server with email capabilities if you want to send email, so keep that in mind. There are free hosting services like 0000free.com which offer email and PHP hosting.
When you have been granted access to host files on an email capable server, you'll want to follow their steps for uploading and serving a custom script. You will also have to configure email for that host before the above script will work.
3. Setup a WebHook integration.
You'll want to familiarize yourself with our WebHook support page. Basically, you'll add the URL for your custom script into the WebHook integration, then you'll be ready to go!
For the sample PHP script above, we grab the query parameter 'email_address' and use that as the destination for the email we are sending to. This query parameter is sent as part of the WebHook URL.
As an example, here's a typical WebHook URL with no query parameters:
Look at our WebHook support page to see how to do parameter replacement, if you want an email to be sent to a different address every time, based on the form submission data. Ie., the email address it gets sent to is provided by the form submission itself.
