I use this code to set the subscription status:

const STATUS_SUBSCRIBED     = 1;
const STATUS_NOT_ACTIVE     = 2;
const STATUS_UNSUBSCRIBED   = 3;
const STATUS_UNCONFIRMED    = 4;

...

$customer = Mage::getSingleton('customer/session')->getCustomer();
$customerID = $customer->getId();

$customerModel = Mage::getModel('customer/customer')
        ->setWebsiteId(Mage::app()->getStore()->getWebsiteId())
        ->load($customerID);

Mage::getModel('newsletter/subscriber')
        ->setCustomerId($customerModel->getId())
        ->setStatus(self::STATUS_SUBSCRIBED)
        ->setEmail("[email protected]")
        ->save();

But the state is not saved and the checkbox* is not getting set in the backend. What am I doing wrong?

*the checkbox I talk about is at: Customers -> manage customers -> 'enter a customer account' -> Newsletter

Below code worked for me --

in Guest case--

$email = "[email protected]";

$subscriber = Mage::getModel('newsletter/subscriber')->loadByEmail($email);
$subscriber->setStoreId(Mage::app()->getStore()->getId());
$subscriber->setSubscriberStatus(Mage_Newsletter_Model_Subscriber::STATUS_SUBSCRIBED);
$subscriber->setEmail($email);
$subscriber->setCustomerId(0);
$subscriber->save();

in case of customer email -

$email = "[email protected]";
$customerID = 1;

$subscriber = Mage::getModel('newsletter/subscriber')->loadByEmail($email);
$subscriber->setStoreId(Mage::app()->getStore()->getId());
$subscriber->setSubscriberStatus(Mage_Newsletter_Model_Subscriber::STATUS_SUBSCRIBED);
$subscriber->setEmail($email);
$subscriber->setCustomerId($customerID);
$subscriber->save();

  • Thanks so far, we are almost there!! It does work if I use STATUS_SUBSCRIBED, but not if I use STATUS_UNSUBSCRIBED ._. how can I unsubscribe a user?

  • it works well for unsubscribed case with Mage_Newsletter_Model_Subscriber::STATUS_UNSUBSCRIBED Oct 5, 2018 at 5:22
  • Nope, I tried it. Won't work. The checkbox is still set.

  • can you paste your code for unsubscribed ? Oct 5, 2018 at 7:21
  • It seems like I strictly have to write $subscriber = Mage::getModel('newsletter/subscriber')->loadByEmail($email); like you did, then it works! If I put loadByEmail($email) in a separate line e.g. $subscriber->loadByEmail($email); then it does not work. That was my culprit. But it does not work if I use another email adress then the one used to register the account.
