Disable Mailchimp double-optin

Post by sachmanya »

We're a member of WPSubscriber and currently using it on our website with mailchimp and facebook integration. We would like to disable Mailchimp's double-optin since we're verifying user and collecting their email with their facebook login. Double optin drops off our subscribers quite bit. Can you pls tell us how we can disable Mailchimp double option please? This is very important to us.

FYI- here is the reference mailchimp api information for disabling the double optin we found, not sure how to do it with WPSubscriber plugin

listSubscribe(string apikey, string id, string email_address, array merge_vars, string email_type, bool double_optin, bool update_existing, bool replace_interests, bool send_welcome)

set double_optin=false

The double-optin configuration is not on the WP Subscribers side but on Mailchimp.

Take a look at this page, you will find how to do it:

This is not true. I use Formidable Forms Pro and it can send optins to Mailchimp without a double optin. There even is an option to enable Mailchimp double optin from the Formidable plugin. Please add the feature to disable double optin to WPSubscribers.
