Is it possible to subscribe to a newsletter without the user having to create an account? So on a page have some fields, like email, name etc and store them in the newsletter data?

How would I do something like that?

My form code:

<? $pageid =  Mage::getBlockSingleton('cms/page')->getPage()->getId();

  if($pageid == '20'){
    echo '
    <form id="contact-form" action="https://natuurgroothandel.com/nieuwsbrief.php" method="post" class="contact_form row contact-form" role="form">
        <p class="col-sm-12 kl-fancy-form">
          <label class="control-label">Naam</label>
          <input type="text" name="name" class="form-control form-control-name" value="" tabindex="1" maxlength="35">
        <p class="col-sm-12 kl-fancy-form">
          <label class="control-label">Geslacht</label>
          <input type="text" name="gender" class="form-control form-control-email h5-email" value="" tabindex="1" maxlength="35">
        <p class="col-sm-12 kl-fancy-form">
          <label class="control-label">Geboortedatum</label>
          <input type="text" name="date" class="form-control form-control-phone" value="" tabindex="1" maxlength="35">
        <p class="col-sm-12 kl-fancy-form">
          <label class="control-label">Emailadres</label>
          <input type="text" name="email" class="form-control form-control-phone" value="" tabindex="1" maxlength="35" required>
        <div class="col-sm-12">
          <div class="error-container"></div>
        <p class="col-sm-12">
          <button class="btn btn-fullcolor" type="submit">Verzenden</button>

  • In default magento, when newsletter subscribe, at that time magento it self place entry in some table. You need to do same things here using custom code. Commented Aug 23, 2017 at 10:10

You can use this code to do this. Put this code in your controller action of form submission:

$email = $this->getRequest()->getPost('email_input_name');

        $subscriber = Mage::getModel('newsletter/subscriber')->loadByEmail($email);

        /* checking if customer is already subscribed or unsubscribed */
        if($subscriber->getStatus() != Mage_Newsletter_Model_Subscriber::STATUS_SUBSCRIBED &&
            $subscriber->getStatus() != Mage_Newsletter_Model_Subscriber::STATUS_UNSUBSCRIBED
                // return or redirect to any page you want
            catch (Exception $e)
  • Thank you, do you have an example of this working with a form?

  • I used this code in an observer for order_place_after event.. you can have a simple html form with action="<?php echo Mage::getUrl('module/controller/action') ?>" and place this code in your action method. Commented Aug 24, 2017 at 6:10
  • Alright, where can I add the above code? I got a form only on the page I want and added the line in your above comment, but I don't see the maps: module/controller/action @Sachin Agarwal
