To integrate your account with MailChimp, make sure you have already created an account with MailChimp.
Once your MailChimp account is set up, simply go to the Admin Area and navigate to Settings.
On this page, select ‘Integrations’ and click the Add Integration button on the top of the page.
From the window that appears click on MailChimp from the list that appears.
Enter in your MailChimp API key in the text field as marked below. If you have put in a valid key, then it will load all your lists and groups from your MailChimp account. Simply select the relevant lists you would like people to subscribe to.
This Article shows you how to get your API Key.
‘Require Opt-in’ information can be found here.
Once you save the changes, you can now edit people and select what lists to subscribe them to. Easy!
I have a new MailChimp account, how do I add all my people into it?
Rather than editing each person and subscribing them to your MailChimp list manually, you can create a Standard Report of all people’s names and email addresses from your account. You can then export that report as a CSV file and then import it into MailChimp.
Once people have been successfully imported and subscribed to the correct list, you should be able to see their Subscription preferences underneath the ‘Email Address’ field in their user account.
Will MailChimp subscribers automatically sync with Tithe.ly ChMS?
Yes. If you already had an existing MailChimp account, if a person in your database is already subscribed to a list, it will automatically sync that with your Tithe.ly ChMS account.
If you change a name or email address in Tithe.ly ChMS, it will automatically update it in your MailChimp account. However, it is important to note that if you update a name or email address in MailChimp, this will not be synced to Tithe.ly ChMS. For this reason we recommend making changes in Tithe.ly ChMS to ensure data is current.
