Ever since WP Optin Wheel version 2.1, we’re supporting Facebook Messenger opt-in through an integration with ChatChamp. This guide explains how to set everything up and start receiving opt-ins through Messenger.

Prerequisites

  • WooCommerce.
  • A Facebook page.

Setting up ChatChamp

  1. Create an account on ChatChamp. They offer a free plan so you can get started right away.
  2. In your WordPress admin Dashboard, go to Plugins > Add New and search for ChatChamp. Download & activate the plugin.
  3. Once the plugin is running, we need to activate your store on ChatChamp. To do so, go to your ChatChamp account > Settings > Setup. Scroll down until you find the section to set up your shop:
    chatchamp-setup-shop
  4. Select WooCommerce and click Next.
  5. Copy the ID that ChatChamp has generated for your store
    chatchamp-generated-id
  6. Paste the ID in the ChatChamp plugin settings on your WordPress website by navigating to WooCommerce > Settings.

Setting up WP Optin Wheel

When setting up your wheel, you have 2 options:

  1. Only use Facebook opt-in
  2. Use Facebook opt-in, in combination with your usual opt-in form (such as MailChimp).

We’ll be discussing both options here.

  1. In your WordPress dashboard, go to Settings > WP Optin Wheel Pro and navigate to the Integrations tab.
  2. Activate ChatChamp by pasting the ID you used in step 5 of Setting up ChatChamp
  3. Now that ChatChamp is active, you can use it as an integration tool whenever you create a new wheel.
    1. If you only want to use Facebook opt-in, you should select ChatChamp in the first step of the wheel-creation process.
      select-chatchamp-in-wheel-settings
    2. If you want to use ChatChamp with any other tool, just select your preferred tool as you normally would. In step 5 (Settings) of the wheel-creation process, under Integrations, you can select to also use Facebook opt-in.

You’re now ready to get Facebook subscribers and use ChatChamp to communicate with them!
