Our direct integration with MailChimp allows you to add your ambassadors to a mailing list of your choice to send email communications containing the ambassador’s unique referral link.
How do I set up MailChimp?
To configure the MailChimp integration, you will need your MailChimp API Key and List ID. Follow the steps below to copy these over from your MailChimp account.
Step 1: Within MailChimp, click your name in the navigation menu in the top-right corner and choose “Account” in the drop-down menu.
Step 2: On the Account page, click the "Extras" drop-down menu and choose “API keys.”
Step 3: Under “Your API keys,” you can either copy an existing API key or click the “Create A Key" button.
Step 4: Next, click “Lists” in the navigation menu to view all of your available lists. To the right of each list, there is a “Stats” button with a drop-down menu. Go the list you want to use and choose "Settings" within the drop-down menu. Please note, if you don’t have any lists, simply click the “Create Lists” button in the top right corner.
Step 5: Scroll down to the bottom of the list Settings page to view the Unique ID. The string of letters and numbers is the List ID you'll add to Ambassador.
Step 6: After copying your API Key and List ID, go back to the Ambassador app and click "Settings" in the navigation menu on the left.
Step 7: Next, click the “Apps” tab. You'll be taken here. Once on this page, you’ll see the button to “Connect” the MailChimp integration.
Step 8: On the MailChimp integration page, you’ll see a field for the API Key and List ID. After you have entered your information, click the blue “Install” button.
Step 9: If the integration has been properly linked, you will see a message stating the MailChimp app was installed successfully.
