Troubleshooting a 400 Error

If you receive a 400 error, you may have used an unsupported form field type. For example, the “phone” type is not supported. If you have this particular problem, take the following steps:.

  1. Within your GetResponse account, please change the Phone Number field type to a Text field.
  2. Within your Elementor form, set the Type of field to Tel.
