I recently had the need to change the “Confirm My Request” URL for AWeber, and I wanted to share the process with you. In this article, I will guide you through the steps to change the confirmation URL for your AWeber account.
What is the Confirm My Request URL?
Before we dive into the process of changing the confirmation URL, let’s understand what it is. The “Confirm My Request” URL is the web address that subscribers are directed to after they opt-in to your email list. It serves as a confirmation step to verify the subscriber’s email address.
Why would you want to change it?
By default, AWeber generates a generic confirmation page for all subscribers. However, you may want to customize this page to match your branding or provide a personalized message to your subscribers. Changing the confirmation URL allows you to redirect subscribers to a custom landing page or a specific page on your website.

- Login to your AWeber account and navigate to the “List Options” for the specific list you want to modify.
- Click on the “Confirmed Opt-In” tab.
- Scroll down to the “Where do you want subscribers to go?” section.
- Under the “Confirmation Thank You Page” option, select “Custom Page.”
- Enter the URL of the custom page you want subscribers to be redirected to.
- Save your changes.
Considerations when choosing a custom page
When selecting a custom page for the confirmation URL, there are a few things to keep in mind:
- Make sure the page is accessible and properly formatted for all devices (desktop, mobile, etc.).
- Provide clear instructions to the subscribers on what to do next or what they can expect.
- Consider adding a personalized message or offer to make the page more engaging.
Changing the “Confirm My Request” URL for AWeber provides you with the opportunity to create a more personalized and engaging experience for your subscribers.
