How do I connect my account to MailChimp?
Before you start make sure you have created at least one list in your MailChimp account.
For the MailChimp list that you want to use you will need to go to Settings > List fields and *|MERGE|* tags and untick the Visible? box in both the First Name and Last Name rows.
Once that is done login into your SignUpAnywhere account, scroll to the Account Integration section at the bottom of the Settings page and click the button next to the MailChimp logo.
You will then be prompted to log into your MailChimp account, choose which list you would like your email addresses transferred into and click Connect.
SignUpAnywhere will then add the new email addresses that you collect to your chosen MailChimp list.
SignUpAnywhere will also include the name of the SignUpAnywhere form with the email address. You can use the list segment feature in MailChimp to send to all the email addresses collected using a specific SignUpAnywhere form.
To do this click the dark grey Create A Segment button at the top of your MailChimp List table, select SignUpAnywhere List Name from the Email Marketing Status dropdown, choose the form name and click Preview Segment. You can then click the dark grey Save as segment button at the top your MailChimp list, give it a name and click Save.
Please note that SignUpAnywhere will only transfer the email addresses (and form name) you collect to MailChimp. If you are on the Business plan and you want to transfer your additional fields (e.g. name, telephone number, etc) then you can use Zapier to automate the process.
To disconnect your SignUpAnywhere account from your MailChimp account just scroll to the Account Integration section at the bottom of the Settings page, click the button next to the MailChimp logo and confirm by clicking the OK button in the alert box. Your accounts will then be unlinked.
