Setting Up Subscription Options

Magento Go manages your list of subscribers and includes a standard set of newsletter notification templates, including a confirmation template to confirm requests to subscribe or unsubscribe. You should preview each template, and make any changes necessary to keep the message consistent with your voice and brand.

    1. To require that each subscription be confirmed by email, set Need to Confirm to “Yes.”

      The double opt-in technique is a protection for both you and your customers. By requiring subscribers to confirm twice, it reduces the number of customers who might consider your newsletter to be spam.

    2. To let visitors subscribe to your newsletter without opening an account, set Allow Guest Subscription to “Yes.”
  4. When complete, click the Save Config button.

Step 2: Preview the Newsletter Confirmation Template

  1. From the Admin menu, select System > Transactional Emails.
