Unsubscribe Link allows your contacts to stop receiving promotional emails from you in case they are not interested. However, they’ll continue to receive transactional emails.
As per the GDPR compliance, it’s mandatory to include unsubscribe links in all your promotional emails.
In this documentation, you’ll learn how to provide unsubscribe links to a broadcast and set up an unsubscribe page.
Configure Unsubscribe Page
First, you need to have an Unsubscribe page. This will be the page where users will redirect to further confirm whether they want to unsubscribe or not.
Once they unsubscribe, their subscription status will be marked as Unsubscribed in FunnelKit Automations.
Step 1: Go to Settings in FunnelKit Automations
Go to Settings and click on Subscribe Page.
