How to Integrate MailChimp Email Marketing
To Integrate the MailChimp Email Marketing click Sell (1) then choose the Email Marketing Apps (2) area.
Premium Plus account holders will need to choose the store they want to manage and click the Pencil (Edit) Icon.
Through this app Content Shelf will pass the following data to MailChimp.
- First Name
- Last Name
- Email Address
From the Mail List Provider (3) drop down box select MailChimp and click Authorize Provider (4).
When the page refreshes you'll be prompted to continue to authorize your store with the email marketing app.
When the page refreshes you'll need your MailChimp Username and Password. Upon entering that information click Login.
It may take the vendor a moment or two to authorize access but as soon as it is done you'll be presented with a confirmation page from Content Shelf. Once the confirmation screen appears it will take a few seconds to be redirected back to your Store Settings Page.
Once back to the Email Marketing Apps area you'll want to Create Opt-In Text (5). This is the opt-in text that will appear on the checkout page of your store near the bottom where the authorizations are. Example: "Add me to your monthly email newsletter!".
You'll also want to click Load Lists (6) and choose the list you want data to go to. These lists must be setup within the Email Marketing App Dashboard prior to integration.
Once things are to your liking click Save Changes (7).
By default all buyers are opted in when purchasing your products but remember they can un-check the opt-in box if they desire. If left checked their information will be posted to your designated list.
