How to Integrate with MailChimp

How to Integrate with MailChimp

One of the common problems JotForm users encounter is to send newsletter emails to people who previously filled their forms. There are really great tools to send emails, and one of them is MailChimp.

Mailchimp is a great tool to send beautiful newsletters or announcements to your web site users and customers. So, instead of implementing a newsletter feature ourselves, we decided to integrate with them.

So, how can you start using MailChimp integration? Easy!

Since Name and Email fields are required in the MailChimp list, please make sure that you are having Name and Email fields on the form before integrating MailChimp.

1. Click SETTINGS at the top

2. Then INTEGRATIONS on the left

3. Look for MAILCHIMP by using the search box

4. Click it to launch the Integration Wizard


Enter your Mailchimp API key.

Then follow the wizard steps.

One of the great things about our MailChimp integration is that it can add your existing submissions data to your newsletter list. So, in minutes, you will be ready to send newsletters to your visitors. See the following screenshot.

You can also setup to send the information directly to an Opt-in mail.

Allow the user to decide if she wants to be added to the Opt-in list by using a Send if user agrees, so this will work if a check box into the form is ticked.

MailChimp is free up to 2,000 subscribers. So, even if you don’t have an existing account, you should give them a try. Send your users a newsletter and remind them about your web site.

Happy Newsletter Sending Day!

    Hi I'm trying to integrate and it says email is required, yet the drop down box wont allow me to select anything? Just has the option for please select and nothing else. :(

  • streetlight

    I have set it up and has been working well, but now i see i have 800+ forms but only 600 are linking over.

    dose mail chimp have a limit?

    thank you

    I've successfully integrated with my MailChimp list, but I have an overwrite problem:
    An optional check box in my JotForm is linked up with a field in my MailChimp list. This field might already be populated in MailChimp – a user may have filled in the form at previously – and I need this information to stay intact.
    But if the check box in my JotForm is left unticked... this will overwrite the MailChimp field with a blank entry – thus deleting any existing information. This is a problem.
    Please tell me if there is a way the field could be left intact if the check box is not ticked?

    Hi there,

    Is it possible to embed the sign-up form into the sidebar, or footer - via a widget?
    I've tried copying the [embed] HTML code into a text widget, but it won't appear on my website.
    Any ideas?

    With each new form you create, do you need to integrate mailchimp each time?
    Thank-you,

  • phluent

    Does the opt in checkbox have to be labeled "Newsletter"? and can the text be edited? - My conditional set up in integrations keeps dropping out the opt in?

  • jerrynasa

    i've got the integration working, nice!! But now I added some fields in my form, but I don't know how to enter the mailchimp integration tool again.

  • kingfisherweddings

    This is absolutely rubbish and a complete waste of time. Will only let you have 3 fields to import.

  • revolutionwed

    After I put in my Mail Chimp API, it asks me to select a list, but none of my lists are shown in the drop down menu (it's empty). If I click NEXT, it redirects me to select a list first, which is still empty. I have like 10-15 Mail Chimp lists...why don't they show up when I try to integrate them?

    Thank you

  • izen

    Hi, I tried the API key integration which worked great. However, the problem is - I have multiple name+email fields, but can choose only one set of name+email
    The 'Add New Option' doesn't allow other name and email to be chosen to add to Mailchimp. How can I fix that?

  • rmkilgorejr

    I have coompleted the intergration process but I can't seem to get the first and last names to populate in the appropriate fields in Mailchimp. How do i correct this problem without changing my JotForm documnent?

  • entechinst

    Hello,

    Is it possible to have the end user choose which Group they wish to subscribe to? This seems like such a logical feature.

    In a world where there are people who like bananas or apples, we should allow them to choose which types of emails they are interested in: Banana Emails or Apple Emails instead of forcing them into one.

  • torontoislandlakeswim

    I am not seeing my contacts go into Mailchimp. I have my API key from Mail chimp, but nothing is flowing through?

  • erreichedeinziel

    Hi.
    I have tested the Mailchimp integration. It works :-)
    I have no a Mailchimp List with 3 "Subgroups". When I start the Mailchimp Integration Wizard I can see the List and the 3 groups.
    The customer should be able to select also the group in the Jot form. The selected group(s) should then submitted to mailchimp.

    Can you help me to solve this problem?

    Thanks,

    Andreas

  • fronton

    that should have said "and select the correct list".

  • fronton

    The integration is not working for me. I select Mailchimp, enter the API key etc and select the correct.

    Then I test the Jotform form - check the opt-in field but the entry does not appear in my Mailchimp email list.

    Any assistance greatly appreciated.

  • DatingCoachKK

    So I love the JotForm system for forms but I want to be able to wrap it into a newsletter. Can I embed the JotForm into MailChimp so that way I can put additional featured information around the JotForm?

  • highoctane

    If I want to only have those submissions who opt in by checking a checkbox to be entered into mailchimp database, how I can I integrate that conditionally?

  • Chris

    Hi,

    I need to create multiple sign up forms that go onto one mailchimp list- but there's one catch.

    Each form needs to go into the same list but a different group of that list.

    Is it possible to add a group field on mailchimp forms?

    Thanks

    Chris
