When you create a Mailerlite account, your account needs to be approved before you’re able to send campaigns or install forms on your website. This approval process is essential to ensuring the reputation of our servers.
If your account is not approved, this doesn’t necessarily mean that you can’t use Mailerlite. We may simply just require a bit more information from you in your profile.
Before you request approval, you must complete your profile on your dashboard. This information will be reviewed by a MailerLite account manager before being approved, so it is important that your answers are clear and concise.
To complete your profile:
Navigate to Dashboard.
Click the Complete profile button.
Fill out your company/business information.
Specify your methods for collecting subscribers. Select the options that are only relevant to you. If you feel that more information is required, select Other and provide as much information as you need.
Specify the type of content you plan to send or include in your landing pages/websites. Ensure the information that you provide explains clearly what you plan to send in your newsletters or publish on your sites.
For example: eBooks, new product updates, online course information. Answers like “emails” or “text and images” are less likely to be approved right away.
Answer the remaining questions about your organization.
Read the Anti-spam policy and check the box if you agree.
Once you’ve completed your profile, then you can click the Request approval button.
The fastest way to be approved is to verify your website ownership. Providing your website and domain email address helps to expedite the approval process as we can quickly learn more about your business.
To verify your website ownership:
Enter your website domain and click Next.
Enter the email address associated with your domain. Note that the website domain is already included after the @ symbol, so you only need to enter the value of your email address before the @ symbol.
A verification email will be sent to your domain email address. Once you have verified your email address, your account will automatically be submitted for review by a MailerLite account manager. You will be notified via email with the result of your approval request.
If you do not have a domain email address, then you will need to request approval without a website.
If you do not have a website yet, or your website is not ready to be reviewed, you can request approval without a website. You will be required to answer additional questions about your business instead. Your answers will be manually reviewed, so make sure that the answers are clear and informative.
To request approval without a website:
Navigate to Dashboard page.
Click Request approval.
Instead of entering a website domain, select the option I don’t have my own website.
In the Social media URL field, copy/paste the link to your social media page.
In the field labeled Tell us about your business, provide a clear description of your business, with any relevant links that would help us understand your organization. If you’re promoting a specific product or service, this is the space to tell us all about it.
Your account will immediately be submitted to be reviewed by a MailerLite account manager. You will be notified of the result of your approval request via email within 24 hours.
Note: In order to get your account approved as fast as possible, ensure your answers give the reader a clear understanding of what your business does.
If your account isn’t immediately approved, don’t worry! This doesn’t mean that you can’t use MailerLite. If you notice your account was disapproved, check your emails. You will find an email from MailerLite with the reason for your account’s disapproval.
Usually, the reason for disapproval can be quickly fixed and you can resubmit for approval right away.
For example, if the information provided about what kind of content you plan to send is unclear, your account will be temporarily disapproved due to a lack of information. In this case, you can simply update the information you provided and resubmit for approval.
To resubmit for approval:
Log in to your MailerLite account.
At the top of any page, you will see a message regarding your approval. Click the link in this message in order to repeat the approval steps and submit for approval for a second time.
