Newsletter: Save a Mailing List


1. List Title

This list title/name will be shown throughout the shop to both yourself as administrator and to the customers viewing the front of your shop. Choose this title carefully in order for it to be understandable by your customers viewing your products. Keep the title below 150 characters.

2. Private List

This is set to ‘No’ by default. Setting this to Yes will make the Mailing List Private which will prevent it from being shown on the front-end of the site to users. In other words, it is for internal use only.

3. Custom Fields

Check the boxes that you want the user to fill in when subscribing to your mailing list. The ticked custom fields will show up when those mailing lists are embedded on the site.

4. Group

Groups are defined in the “Newsletters > Groups” section. You must first create one in order to see it when editing a mailing list and to add mailing lists to it. Groups allow you to categorize your mailing lists. Useful, for example, when offering a multilingual site. This way you can have multiple lists per language and categorize them all together into groups defined as each language. If you have any groups, you can choose one for this mailing list.

5. Double Opt-In

Specify if double opt in is needed for a specific mailing list. Double opt in is a confirmation email with a link that needs te be accepted before activation. This is only applicable if “require activation” is turned on under Newsletters> Configuration> Subscribers> Subscription Behaviour as shown in image below.
