Common Problems with ConvertKit on Zapier

Subscriber isn't showing up on the form even though the task is successful#

By default, ConvertKit requires that subscribers double opt-in to emails for confirmation. That means they won't show up on the list until they confirm their subscription. If you'd like to automatically add them to the list, you can turn off the double opt-in by going to the Form settings, then clicking Incentive Email, and selecting "auto-confirm new members" at the bottom.

New subscribers in ConvertKit are not triggering the Zap#

If you add subscribers manually in ConvertKit, via the "Import Subscribers" button, the automation triggers (including Zaps) are not triggered. To trigger the Zap, add subscribers through a form or landing page, or through a Zap or the ConvertKit API.
