Marketing Opt-In (Not just Opt-Out)

Glenn Rowe shared this idea 5 years ago
Under Consideration

Many jurisdictions have a mandatory opt-out legislation for sending marketing emails. With opt-out legislation, you are free to spam them until they opt-out. In our jurisdiction we are never allowed to solicit them or market to them unless they have specifically opted in. We are not even allowed to pre-check the checkbox for them on a registration form.

Considering the above, this request is to modify the current Opt-Out function so an admin can choose whether it functions as Opt-Out or Opt-In

As of July, this will be required by Law in Canada

This is now law in canada and i have no way to request consent with WHMCS, so essentially using WHMCS as a canadian business is now in contravention of applicable laws since this has not been addressed

This will be law under GDPR in the UK in May, so would be very useful.
