Once people start opting in to your forms and pages, you may be wondering how you can access your leads. Leadpages is primarily a lead collection platform meant to integrate with third-party services that handle lead storage.
However, depending on your page’s setup, there are a few was you can access your leads. Read on to learn how!

Access leads from third-party services
In most cases, we recommend integrating your forms (in Leadboxes or Leadpages) with an email service provider, CRM, and/or a webinar service. That way, you can access and act on your leads once they opt in through Leadpages.
Most services we integrate with store leads in a database (like a subscriber list). Check with the services you use to learn how you can access your opt-ins—many will even allow you to export your lead data.
For more information on what services we support, please see our Integrations Overview.
Export leads from Drag & Drop pages
Unlike Standard Leadpages and Leadboxes, our Drag & Drop forms can store lead information, so you can download your opt-in data as a CSV file. Here’s how:
- Open the drag-and-drop page whose leads you’d like to export in the builder.
- Click the ellipsis menu icon in the top-right corner of the page, and select Export Leads to CSV.
- In the modal that pops up, choose a form whose leads you’d like to export and click Download (or choose Download All to export all leads from the page).
Leadpages will export your opt-in data to a CSV file that you can download and use in your favorite spreadsheet app.
Gather lead info via Lead Notifications
You can also gather lead data via Lead Notifications—the default integration for our Standard and Drag & Drop builders. When Lead Notifications is enabled for your form, our system will send opt-in data to your email every time someone submits their information.
Each email will contain opt-in data such as leads’ email address, names, postal code, etc. depending on what information your form is setup to collect. Because of this, your email inbox can act as a lead storage container since your opt-in data should be searchable by your email client.
That said, we do recommend integrating with a third-party service for more robust lead storage.
Frequently asked questions
What happens to my leads if my integration experiences a service disruption or goes down?
Although it’s rare, sometimes third-party services we integrate with will experience downtime or other issues. In such cases, our system will store a backlog of any opt-in data that’s collected during the outage. When the service you use is operating normally again, we’ll send the lead data to them.
Sometimes, services limit how much data can be sent at once—so it can take a bit longer than normal for your leads to end up in their system. We always send over lead data at the highest rate possible.
