How do I enable single opt-in confirmation?

With ActiveCampaign, you can use single opt-in with your subscription forms.

A single opt-in means that contacts will not be asked to confirm their subscription to your list. Once they submit your form, subscribers are added as “Active” contacts to your list right away. 

This option is configured on ActiveCampaign forms. Double opt-in is turned on for all subscription forms by default. This setting can be turned off at any time.

Enable single opt-in for your subscription form

1. Click "Site" on the left menu of your account.

2. Click the "Forms" option on the Site menu.

3. Locate the form you wish to work with, then click the "Edit" button.
