Last update: 25 June 2020. Version: 2.6.2. Platform: for WordPress.

Give Visitors a Strong Reason to Leave Their Emails on Your Website

Opt-In Panda locks a portion of content on a webpage, by hiding or blurring it, and asks the visitor to enter his email address (opt-in) to unlock your content.

In other words, it gives visitors a reason to subscribe right now in return to instant access to your valuable content (e.g. downloads, discounts, videos and so on).

Boost Converting Visitors Into Subscribers & Customers

Hide your premium content behind an optin form and watch your email subscription rates burst through the roof. Easily create in-content freebies and serve them to your subscribers only.

With Opt-In Panda, you will be able:

  • Effectively and easily convert visitors into subscribers.
  • Build large mailing lists on MailChimp, Aweber, GetReponse (and other services).
  • Send more emails and increase your income.
  • Know more about visitors of your website (name, social profile).

Single Opt-In, Double Opt-In and Quick Email Confirmation

The plugin equally well works with Single Opt-In (without email confirmation) and Double Opt-In (with email confirmation) modes. Only you decide which mode to use.

We done our best to make the Double Opt-In email confirmation process as quick and pleasant as possible.

Gone are the days when you had to send your subscribers to a Confirmation Page. Now your visitors have to make only several simple clicks by following the instruction appearing after submitting the form to confirm their emails.

Without refreshing the page!

Add Subscribers Directly To Your Favorite Mailing Service

The Opt-In Panda integrates directly with all the major mailing services and plugins: MailChimp, Aweber, SendGrid, ActiveCampaign, GetResponse, MyMail, Mailster, MailPoet (including MailPoet 3), FreshMail, Acumbamail, Sendy, K-news, SmartEmailing.cz, Sendinblue, SG Autorepondeur.

Opt-In Panda for WordPress - 3

Also supports any transactional mailing services (for example, Mandrill, Postmark, Mailjet, Amazon SES) and SMTP after installing respective WordPress plugins.

We are constantly adding more email marketing providers to the plugin. Moreover, the plugin saves all received email contacts locally in the database.

If you use another mailing service, you can easily export your contacts from Opt-In Panda to your mailing service at any time.

Subscribe Visitors through Facebook, Twitter, Google or LinkedIn & Learn Your Audience

Except subscription via the classic opt-in form, the plugin also provides visitors an option to subscribe through social networks.

When the user subscribes via social networks, the locker extracts some personal data (name, social profile). This data provides a better understanding of your audience and visitors on your website.

Opt-In Panda for WordPress - 5

For each social button, you can configure extra actions which should be performed when the user clicks on the social button. For example, you can set up the locker to create an account for the user on your website.

Opt-In Panda for WordPress - 6

Note: you can extend the features of the Opt-In Panda by installing the Social Locker plugin. It makes available more actions (tweet, follow, subscribe to Youtube channel, etc).

Create Interest to Your Content via Overlay Effects

The Opt-In Panda allows you to choose how the locked content has to be displayed: completely hidden or partly visible.

Opt-In Panda for WordPress - 7

One of the available overlay modes is the blurring mode. It attracts tremendous attention and create huge interest to your locked content.

If people see and understand what they will get after unlocking, they are more likely to leave their emails.

Unlimited Custom Fields To Fit Your Business Needs (NEW!)

Custom Fields are a great way to customize your Opt-In Panda forms for your specific business needs.

Need to ask your visitors for a phone number or address? No problem! You can create custom textboxes (with/without input mask), dropdown lists, checkboxes and more.

Opt-In Panda for WordPress - 8

Values from the custom fields are saved directly in your mailing provider and available to export in CSV format.

Track Your Results with Built-in Advanced Analytics

The plugin collects the full stats (impressions, conversions) on how your lockers perform on pages of your websites.

Opt-In Panda for WordPress - 10

Easily identify which lockers on which pages are out-performing others, how to optimize your lockers and what you could do differently to improve your results.

Beautiful Attention-Grabbing Styles Optimized For the Highest Conversion Rates

With the Opt-In Panda, you get 3 styles available to use out of the box.

Opt-In Panda for WordPress - 11

Every style was polished by a professional graphic designer and has been tested on real websites to ensure that they will catch the visitors attention.

Customization Features for Any Needs, Website and Audience

Each website has its own unique audience and needs. Therefore, the Opt-In Panda provides you with advanced features to customize any aspect of your lockers.

Opt-In Panda for WordPress - 13

There are plenty of additional options to configure Opt-In Panda flexibly to meet your needs. For example, you can add the countdown Timer, or the Close Cross to skip the opt-in process, or hide your lockers for registered users and more.

And Even More Powerful Features…

GDPR-ready. Opt-In Panda is fully GDPR-ready. Just enable the Consent Checkbox option in settings of your locker.

Zapier Integration. Send data collected with your lockers to Zapier and then automatically pass them to thousands of web apps supported by Zapier.

Works With Caching Plugins. If you use W3 Total Cache or any other caching plugin, the Opt-In Panda will work without any problems.

SEO friendly. Your locked content is still visible for search bots for better SEO by default. Of course you can turn off this feature.

4 Types of Locks. Lock any content manually via shortcodes or setup batch lock via one of 3 powerful modes (“Skip & Lock”, “More Tag”, “CSS Selector”).

Optimized For Mobile. We have adapted the plugin for mobile devices. Mobile users can obtain access to your locked content as well as desktop users.

Smart Targeting. Set your lockers to display on specific high traffic pages on your website. Show the locker only for non-registered visitors or PC users.

Delayed Content. Load your locked content via ajax (dynamically) only when the user is liked or shared your page. Perfect for loading promo codes.

Fast Loading. The plugin is well optimized and doesn't add extra loads on your website. Confirmed with tests from the P3 plugin and New Relic.

Developer Friendly. Use the plugin events (Unlock, Lock, Ready) and hooks for customization and creating your own extensions.
