You can quickly add a single subscriber to your MailChimp list from the Lists page in your account without going through the double opt-in process, just make sure you have the subscriber's permission before you add them to your list. In this article we walk you through the steps to add a single email address to a list.

  1. Navigate to the Lists page.
  2. Click the subscriber icon for the list.

    Select list subscriber icon

  3. Fill out their information and check the This person gave me permission to be added to my list box.

    Fill out subscriber information and select that they gave permission

  4. Click the Subscribe button.

After clicking Subscribe, we show a confirmation message to let you know the subscriber was added to your list successfully.


  • You must have a person's permission before adding them to a list. If you add a person this way, there is no double opt-in "paper trail" in case the person forgets and reports you for spamming.
  • If you'd like to add more than one person at a time you can walk through the import process to add them to an existing list.

This feature is limited to certain user levels. You can see your user level on the Users & Account Details page and this article explains what each level can access in the account.
