Opt-in checkbox WooCommerce checkout page


Is there any possibility to check this checkbox by default? This way we have more chance of getting subscribers.

Unfortunately, that’s not possible. The Opt-in at Checkout checkbox is designed to be unchecked by default, and it is against our policies to have it pre-checked.

A customer should explicitly agree to receive marketing e-mails, so it’s important to make this their choice.

If you feel customers are not subscribing through the checkout, I’d suggest reviewing if the opt-in checkbox is visible enough. If not, you can use CSS to style it better.

You can also change the text to invite your customers to join your lists in MailPoet > Settings > WooCommerce tab.
