Support » Plugin: MailPoet Checkout Subscription for WooCommerce (Legacy) » Subscribe to newsletter at checkout without an account

  • Resolved niallolaoghaire


    Hi Sebastion
    I noticed that at “Check Out” when you can click on the “Yes, add me to your mailing list” but not on the option to create an account – that a new subscriber is not added. It seems that you have to add an account to opt-in for the newsletter? Is it possible to become a newsletter subscriber at check out without adding an account?
    Thanks in advance, Niall

    That’s a lot of plugins installed. Have you gone through each of the WooCommerce plugins ?

    If this is a demo site, can you enable debug mode and install the plugin Blackbox Debug Bar for me and I will test your site out.

    Thank you.

    Hi Sebastien
    Both debug mode & the plugin are installed.
    I turned off plug-ins & switched themes before posting to no avail of course.
    Thanks very much Niall

    I am unable to checkout an order because it says: Invalid shipping method.

    I have filled in everything, ticked the subscription checkbox and accepted the terms but nothing happens.

    You may have a plugin conflict possibly from another WooCommerce plugin.

    Please disable all plugins except WooCommerce, MailPoet and the MailPoet Add-on.

    Then test again. If the problem still occurs then I will take another look.

    Hi niallolaoghaire,

    I’m not sure but I think that is WangGuard Wisija Connector.

    If you are testing the checkout page, every time you test the checkout you are sending your IP to WangGuard (because you use MailPoet). WangGuard block your IP and the user is not added to MailPoet.

    The IP is blocked because there are many registrations from the it.

    Go to WangGuard -> WangGuard Settings – and mark Don’t check IP client. Then try again.

    Hi Sebastien / Jose
    Thanks for your replies – I disabled all plugins except those three & reverted to the 2014 theme but the problem is persisting.
    Sebastien I’m disabling shipping so you should be able to proceed to checkout. I’ve also got rid of all test subscribers in wysija.
    Jose I’ve deleted Wanguard completely & it still persists – The subscriber will be added if an account is set up but not if only “Yes, add me to your mailing list” is ticked.

    I will need to look into this further. This should not be happening.

    Hi Sebastien
    This error came up on the debug toolbar:
    Strict Non-static method WYSIJA_view::secure() should not be called statically, assuming $this from incompatible context on line 391 in file /home/k24684/public_html/fskfs-woocom2342r/wp-content/plugins/wysija-newsletters/helpers/back.php

    Please update MailPoet to see if this helps solve the problem.

    Thank you.
