Create a double opt-in (DOI) confirmation template for Brevo form

You need a specific template to be able to send Double Opt-in (DOI) confirmation emails and retrieve the DOI confirmation in Brevo. 

You'll see, it's pretty easy, but you need to make sure you follow the procedure to make it work! 

❗️ Important
This tutorial only applies if you're using Brevo's forms. If you want to use external forms, please check our dedicated tutorial Using Marketing Automation to create a double opt-in subscription.

⚙️ Setup your template

💡 Good to know
We do not recommend adding personalization using contact attributes to your double opt-in (DOI) confirmation template. Since no information is stored in the attributes of the contacts who will receive this email, only the fallback value will be shown.
  1. Go to Campaigns > Templates.
  2. Click New Template.
  3. Complete the setup data just like a regular email template.
    For the subject, we recommend something clear like Confirm your subscription.
  4. Click Show Advanced Options.
  5. Enter optin in the Add a tag field.
  6. Click Next Step.

🖌️ Design your template

You can now design your template:

  1. Choose a template design and edit it as desired.
  2. Add a Button block to your template. 
  3. Add the Double opt-in link:
    Click the Add link icon and choose Double opt-in link from the Type of link drop-down list. You can also add a Link title that will appear when you hover the mouse over the button. Click Insert.
  4. Save and activate your template.
  5. Return to your subscription form and at the Settings step, choose this template from the drop-down list.
