    Phone number validation does not work for all countries

    Asked by Sentinelvolvo on August 03, 2015 at 10:44 AM


    I only started using your services as an alternative to mail chimp and as a quick sign up method for our customers, as mailchimp requires a confirmation click before customers customers are signed up and in that process we are always losing customers.

    But when i was doing the integration using the API key from mail chimp, i had to match up all the required fields. The only problem is that on your form, the phone entry is set up to US (I think) phone numbers, requiring area code. We don't have that in the UK. So I decided to use a simple number box field. Which is not being recognized by your system when integrating to mail chimp's phone field. So for now, i can't do the integration as it would mess up my mail chimp list, if I change it there.

    So, here is the suggestion. You could have an option to have the phone number as usa AND other countries.

    Hope you will be able to do it soon and then i will love your platform even more :)

    I understand that the phone number formatting in England does not work always work with the phone validation tool. Unfortunately for mail chimp you are required to use this feature to capture the phone number properly. I will send this ticket up to the developers as a feature request for modification of the phone number validation.
