ajax is not working. The page loads the php file instead of showing the message on the same page

Anyway to get this updated for the mail chimp v3 API? Also, would like to see example that on submit, can redirect to a URL. Just need email. I understand that changing mail chimp value from 'pending' to 'subscribed' will allow you to do single opt-in. Any help would be appreciated.
