Its pretty obvious to anyone that opting in to a newsletter is optional.  Especially considering they have to check a box to opt in.  Is there a way to remove the (optional) text?

Any help would be much appreciated.  I’m using woocommerce.

Hello @Dwell,

Great question!

From my experience you would not be able to remove the “(optional)” text as part of the newsletter subscription checkbox text from the WooCommerce checkout. Although you can edit the subscribe to newsletter text within your WooCommerce/Klaviyo plugin, the “(optional)” text will be applied automatically. 

You may potentially be able to omit that “(optional)” text by adjusting the code and/or CSS of your checkout page. I would suggest working with WooCommerce or your own developers to make these adjustments. I’ve also included some further resources that may help you with this process below:

I hope this helps!
