Need Simple Plugin to Email Users who Sign Up on Wordpress

11 replies
Hello Fellow Warriors,
I need a plugin or tool that will allow me to simply send out an email to a user once they put in their email address automatically.

**I've tried the mailchimp plugin, but it sends the user an "Are You Sure You Want to Opt-In?" email before it will begin sending them the actual email. This is one step that I need to avoid.

Do you guys have any other options I can utilize?

Just need basic signup to a list that will send out 1 email automatically to a user without anything in between

    For now I am just collecting emails and sending them out materials manually. Anyone have a better solution?

      Well, I do not do it manually. I never have. Even when I was barley making any money at all.

      I always sacrificed the measly sum of $20 and gone with a professional AR service like Aweber.

      In the long run, you will be happy you went this route
      Just my opinion

        Well we have/pay for Mailchimp. I tried the plugin from mailchimp for wordpress, but every time someone enter their email address to add to the list, it has to send them out a confirmation email asking if they are sure they want to subscribe to the list.

    You can use GetResponse. They also have a Wordpress plugin - GetResponse Integration.

    You can set your campaign to single optin, so that your subscribers will not have to confirm their subscription. You can refer to this resource: How can I disable double opt-in confirmation?

    NOTE: If you are adding subscribers via API through a 3rd party tool/service, then by default the campaign will be set to double optin and if you want to make it single optin, then you can refer to this resource: How can I disable double opt-in for API?


    P.S: I would suggest you to have double optin enabled.

    Hope it helps

      We already pay for Mailchimp but it forces us to ask the user if they are sure if they want to opt in. This is what is killing it for us. That extra step looks unprofessional and will lose people

          Hello. You should use mailpoet plugin which is free.
          See this snippet text :
          It's an email that is sent automatically to someone after he does something. In MailPoet, there are 2 such events:

          When someone subscribes to a mailing list.
          When someone subscribes to your site as a WordPress user.

          See full article here : Free Autoresponder Plugin in WordPress?

    I use Mailchimp for wordpress lite and Mailchimp Sync plugins with the two of them anyone that signs up automatically get added to my mailchimp list.

    I use it to notify them of updates to the site.

    Also make sure you have single optin selected in you list settings.

      And doing this doesn't make it send a confirmation to join the list email?

        On mine it does not, they get automatically added once they join my wordpress site.
