MailChimp Integration – Automatic Add to List

Hi guys,

Is there a way to automatically add registered users to the MailChimp mailing lists, without them having to find the MailChimp confirmation email and manually choose to opt-in? We ran a test the other day, and the MailChimp confirmation email went to a user’s junk mail, thus she was never added to the mailing list :s Do you know of any settings within EE3 that will automatically add users? Or is this something we need to look at, from MailChimp’s settings?

Thank you!

Hi Carrie,

With the EE3 mailchimp addon you’ll need to edit a code file to disable double opt it.

Open up espresso-mailchimp/MCAPI.class.php

On line 1567 you will find:

function listSubscribe($id, $email_address, $merge_vars=NULL, $email_type='html', $double_optin=true, $update_existing=false, $replace_interests=true, $send_welcome=false) {

Change the $double_optin parameter to false. So:

function listSubscribe($id, $email_address, $merge_vars=NULL, $email_type='html', $double_optin=false, $update_existing=false, $replace_interests=true, $send_welcome=false) {

However, we recommend against disabling double opt in, take a look here for more info:

Hi Tony,

Thank you for the code, I appreciate it. We’re trying to make it as easy for users as possible, although we’re finding a few still not confirming that MailChimp link. I agree with you that we should not disable the link, we’re going to keep it. 🙂 I can do no more than add bold text to confirmation emails, and hope that people are reading about what they purchased haha :s

Thank you!!!
