Easily Disable MailChimp Double Opt-in in API 3.0

David Bosley

MailChimp’s API version 3.0 has changed a bit from previous versions, but nonetheless, we can still disable the double opt-in feature.

First check out MailChimp’s documentation on their API 3.0 version and then go to the Add A New List Member Section which details the notes you need.

Scroll down to the “Status” section and you should see the following:

– status*
– Type: string
– Title: Status
– Read only: false
– Subscriber’s current status. Possible Values: Possible Values: subscribed, unsubscribed, cleaned, pending

You should pass the value “subscribed” in the API field instead of “pending”. Using “pending” will always send a double opt-in confirmation until that users confirms their subscription. By passing “subscribed” you will bypass this method.

And that should do it!
