Сreatе and Edit Subscription Confirmation Emails

A subscription confirmation email is an automatic response message that the user receives immediately after Double Opt-In subscription. A confirmation link is added in  this email. The subscriber must click on it to complete the subscription procedure and start receiving newsletters.

Сreating a Subscription Confirmation Email

A subscription confirmation email is created for each contact list separately.

When you create a contact list, it is automatically assigned a standard subscription confirmation email.

Working With a Subscription Confirmation Email in the Email Builder

Editing a subscription confirmation email is no different from creating a regular email in the email builder. You can add/remove rows and blocks, edit them, and select preset or saved rows.

A mandatory condition for a subscription confirmation email is that it should contain the {{ConfirmUrl}} variable for merging the subscription confirmation link. It is best to place the variable on the button in the central part of the email.

You can also add the {{ConfirmUrl}} variable to the text or as a hyperlink. In the first case, the subscription confirmation URL will be shown instead. To add a hyperlink, select a part of the text and click on Insert/Edit link. In the "URL" field, insert the {{ConfirmUrl}} variable.

To add a hyperlink

 

Make the confirmation link visible and place it in a prominent place. Otherwise, the subscriber may not understand where to click, and will not complete the subscription process.

After making changes to the email, click on the Save button in the upper-right corner of the editor.

Working with Subscription Confirmation Email in the HTML Editor

We recommend using the HTML editor only if you have HTML skills. Otherwise, we recommend using the email builder.

In the HTML editor, you can make minor changes to already created blocks without changing the email code. You can edit the text of the standard subscription confirmation email or change the picture by double-clicking on it and selecting another picture in the file manager. In this case, the styles specified for this block will be applied to the changes made.

In the HTML editor
The main changes in the HTML editor are made on the "Source" tab, where you work with the email code.

The main changes in the HTML editor

Here you can change the code of the default  email or use the code of the already-made email.

You can also download the email template from a file. The main thing is that the new email  contains a variable for the {{ConfirmUrl}} merge tag. It should be placed in a prominent place and be visible. You can add a variable as a link to an image, button, text, or enter it in the text of an email.

You can also change the link to the confirmation page that opens after the user confirms their subscription in the email. On the Opt-in and opt-out tools tab, select Pages and links. Insert your link in the row "Confirmation Thank You Page".
