Support » Plugin: WP WooCommerce Mailchimp » Unlawful plugin’s behaviour by design

  • Hi
    I downloaded your plugin only few weeks ago as the main Mailchimp for WooCommerce plugin is simply useless and doesn’t work.

    On the checkout page I have the Opt In Box ticked. So if the customer removes the tick, it means they don’t wish to subscribe.

    And yet, when I checked my Mailchimp list I saw that several customers who did NOT wish to subscribe (unticked the box) have still been added to my Mailchimp list!!

    This is wrong on two levels:

    1. It is a breach of privacy as it adds customers to my Mailchimp list against their wish and without consent. As such, it is UNLAWFUL.

    2. It creates a list of “non-subscribed audience” in my Mailchimp account which I don’t need, don’t want and can’t do anything with it, as Mailchimp will not allow me to send any promotional emails to those people even if I wanted to.

    Please explain ASAP this behaviour of your plugin and advise how to fix it. If you don’t have a fix, I strongly suggest that you develop it ASAP.

    I cannot and do not want to add to my Mailchinp list customers who do not wish to be added.

    If you have the “Subscribe Customers” plugin setting set to “Ask for permission”, then our plugin ONLY subscribes customers that check the opt-in checkbox.

    In order for us to look at your case closer, please enable logging under WooCommerce > Settings > Mailchimp under the Troubleshooting link.

    Then, please contact us via and attach your “System Info” from that tab and the log file after you have submitted a test order and verified the behavior you described. We would recommend submitting two test orders with different test email addresses: One with the opt-in checkbox checked and one without the opt-in checkbox checked in order to capture both scenarios in the log.

    thanks for your reply.

    I have copied the info and the log after 2 tests. There is some sort of error.

    I’m sending it to you now.

    many thanks
