    Is it possible to set up a single opt-in option instead of a double one when integrating JotForm with MailChimp?

    May I ask what you specifically mean by "single opt-in"?

    Do you want to automatically subscribe users to your mailing list without asking for a confirmation?

    If we understand you correctly, please take a look at the "Send Opt-In Email" option. You can disable it in order to avoid Double Opt-In process.

    However, even with our Single Opt-In your user will get a thank you confirmation message from Mailchimp with unsubscribe link in it (just in case they were signed up by someone else).

    Thank you. So if I understand, I just uncheck the Send Opt-in Email." I that correct? BTW...I really like the paragraph at the bottom. That's exactly what I am looking to do.

    Finally, just want to make sure that doing it this way won't be a big problem if using MailChimp. I know they are pretty adamant about the double-opt in. But I also understand that some people don't follow up with the confirmation, and you lose subscribers that way.

    You are completely right, you just need to uncheck the Send Opt-In Email option. As far as I understand, Single Opt-In with confirmation email is acceptable for Mailchimp and you should not have problems with this.

    Also, it is possible to use a Send If Choice is checked option to add the subscription confirmation checkbox within a form.

    Thank you for using our services.

    Thanks! When you say, "it is possible to use a Send If Choice is checked option to add the subscription confirmation checkbox within a form," is that the same as sending a Thank You for Subscribing message?

    Thanks for showing me.It's clear now what that option is. In the future. if I wonder what something like this will look like, can I choose it and send a copy to myself so I can see it before I finalize the choice? .

    Hi,

    Of course you'll be able to received submissions from JotForm when someone submits the form, is this what you are referring to? If not, can you expand it a bit? Thanks!

    Hi everyone. I want a double opt-in but I want the confirmation link to be in my jotform autoresponse email instead of in an email from mailchimp. Is that possible?
