Mailchimp Integration Setup - ProfilePress

Mailchimp Integration Setup

The Mailchimp addon lets you add your WordPress membership site users to a Mailchimp audience or email list when they register on your site.

It can automatically sync profile changes with Mailchimp and allow users to manage their own email preferences from their account page. That is, they can unsubscribe or subscribe themselves to some of your emails and not others.

Activating the Addon

To activate the MailChimp addon, go to ProfilePress>>Addons>> Scroll to Mailchimp and switch it ON

Setting up Mailchimp

Adding your Mailchimp API Key

If you already have your Mailchimp account API key you can paste it in the field or click on “Get it Here” below the field to navigate the API page of MailChimp (you will be required to login to your Mailchimp account).

Enable Auto Sync

Enabling auto-sync allows the plugin to listen to changes in your WordPress user base and automatically sync them with Mailchimp.

Sync Tool

This tool allows you to import users in bulk to your MailChimp Audience.

Click on “Save Settings” to save and activate your API Key.

Note: This will add an “API key successfully validated” note to the API field

Adding Audiences

ProfilePress allows you to create multiple audiences for use with MailChimp. To Create your first audience click on “Add New Audience”

Enable Audience: Activating this will make this audience or list available for use in your forms and in the user notification settings to subscribe to and unsubscribe from.

Title: This is the title text shown on the Registration Form and My Account pages to represent this audience. Preferably, the selected audience name.

Audience: This allows you to select the MailChimp list you want the new users added to.

Automatically Add New Users: If enabled, users will automatically be subscribed to this audience when they register and the audience will not show on a registration form even if you add the Mailchimp field to the form.

Mapping Custom Fields: If you have custom fields in your registration form, this section allows you to map them to their respective attributes in MailChimp.

Double Opt-in: This option allows users to receive an opt-in confirmation email before they are added to this audience.

Default Tags: You can select tags to apply to users that subscribe to this audience during account registration. The tags must have been already created in your MailChimp dashboard

That’s all 😁
