Most email marketing service providers frown upon single optins, but several do offer the option to enable it. MailChimp, one of the popular email service provider, allows you to enable single-optin by using their API. Since we already use the API to connect with MailChimp, several of our customers asked us to add the ability to disable double-optins and enable single-optin for MailChimp.
OptinMonster makes enabling single-optin for MailChimp a one-click process. Follow this guide to enable single opt-in for MailChimp.
Step 1 – Create or Modify an Optin
Create a new optin or modify an existing optin from OptinMonster Dashboard. Open the OptinMonster Builder by selecting the Edit link.
Step 2 – Disable MailChimp Double-Optin
Select the Integrations tab in the optin builder.
Within the Integrations panel, once you’ve connected your MailChimp integration you can turn OFF the Enable Double Opt-in? option.
Finally, save your optin and you’re done! New subscribers will be automatically added to your list from this optin.
Q: Can I disable double optin if I’m using a Custom HTML Optin Form integration?
A: No, it’s only possible to disable MailChimp’s double optin when using our native MailChimp integration. This is because MailChimp allows single-optin only through their API, a setting that we cannot override if you’re using a Custom HTML Optin Form integration.
