Add Your API information

The ConvertKit plugin for WordPress needs to connect to your ConvertKit account and it does it through the API. No you don’t need to know what an API is or how it works, all you need is to go to your ConvertKit account under your user icon go to Account, in the account info (the first page in your account area) you will find the API Key and the API Secret. You will need both these codes to connect the plugin.

To see if the connection has been successful click on “Refresh forms” to see a list of the forms and landing pages you have created in your ConvertKit account.

Now you need to create a page in your WordPress website. Go to “Pages > Add new” to create a new page. Give it a name and publish it immediately. If you look at the bottom of the page you have created you will see a box with ConvertKit as title.
