How do I add and manage my subscription options?

Adding your subscription options is important to ensure you remain GDPR compliant. The guest must opt-in to any marketing you may wish to send. 

1. Go to Admin > Subscription options.

2. Click "Add new". 

3.  Enter a "Name" - this is will be used as a reference only (not seen by the guest).

Enter the "Text" - enter the subscription question eg. Please send me special offers by email.

Enter the "Type" - This is the method you will contact the guest.

What does Double opt-in mean?

Ticking this box means that when a guest ticks to subscribe, they will be sent an email containing a validation link. Their consent for the subscription will not be allowed unless they click this link as well.

If you do not tick the Double opt-in field, the guest will be consenting to the subscription as soon as they tick the box on your online forms.

If you wish to use multiple methods to contact guests, you should set-up multiple subscripton options by repeating this process.

Where do my Subscription Options display?

On your website booking form they will display on the final page where your guest submits their booking. They will also display on the website enquiry form.
