I am using below code for newsletter subscription.

$email = 'test@email.com';
$subscriberFactory = $objectManager- >get('\Magento\Newsletter\Model\SubscriberFactory');

It is working fine, how can i add first name and last name as well as type also? Is it possible that way?


By default, there is no field for saving the name (first name and last name) in the newsletter_subscriber table.

If you want to save these values, first you need to create a custom module and add the fields to hold first name and last name in the table.

Next, to save these values, you can either override Magento\Newsletter\Model\Subscriber or write a plugin for that.

I hope you know how to create a plugin.

Below is the sample code for the plugin:

namespace Stack\Newsletters\Plugin;

use Magento\Framework\App\Request\Http;

class Subscriber {
    protected $request;
    public function __construct(Http $request){
        $this->request = $request;

    public function aroundSubscribe($subject, \Closure $proceed, $email) {

        if ($this->request->isPost() && $this->request->getPost('fname')) { 

            $fname = $this->request->getPost('fname');
            $lname = $this->request->getPost('lname');

            $result = $proceed($email);

            try {
            }catch (\Exception $e) {
                throw new \Exception($e->getMessage());
        return $result;

I hope it can help you.

  • Please check updated answer now. By your way, it is not possible to add firstname and lastname. You need to modify model function. – Mohit Kumar Arora Sep 10 '18 at 8:01
