A confirmation link {{ConfirmUrl}} is a required link in a  subscription confirmation email. This email is sent automatically to each contact with a two-step subscription (Double Opt-In) process. Immediately after filling out the form, the user receives an email to confirm their consent to receive  newsletters.

In the default confirmation email, the {{ConfirmUrl}} link is added both to the button and to the text.

You can modify  the default confirmation email, but it must contain a confirmation link {{ConfirmUrl}}.

Сreating a Confirmation Email

The {{ConfirmUrl}} merge tag can be added as a link to the text, a button, an image, a sticker, or a gif. The main thing is that this link is visible. If the subscriber does not understand where to click, he/she  will not be included in the contact list.

In the builder

Create a confirmation email in the block editor or edit the default email.

Now add the confirmation link. It is best to place the {{ConfirmUrl}} link on the button.

Drag the button block into the email layout, click on it, and add the {{ConfirmUrl}} merge tag to the link field in the settings on the left-side menu.
