Mailchimp Integration with WordPress Step by Step

by Sep 5, 2022Blog, Email Marketing39 comments

Prerequisites

I’ve seen that a lot of WordPress developers are facing difficulties with Mailchimp integration. It is so simple and easy. However, there are a few things to be clarified.

  1. WordPress Site > Need to have a WordPress Site
  2. Gmail Account > Need to have a Gmail account
  3. Mailchimp Account > Need to have a Mailchimp account
  4. Integration Process > Just one click away

Benefits

Before jumping into the process, let’s see what we are getting after the Mailchimp integration

  • Add your subscribers to the Mailchimp list automatically
  • Email Champaign from Mailchimp for your clients/subscribers [2000 mail list is free]
  • Email Champaign automation

Steps to Be Followed

This is a bit technical, and you may think that you cannot do this without some help. However, it is not like that. There is no coding required and you just need to follow the instruction sequences. Let’s see how we can do this.

WordPress Site Prerequisites

1. Check the Administrator’s email address
To find it out, go to yourdomsin.com/wp-admin/
Path: WordPress Dashboard> Settings>General>Administrator email [This is not a must]

WP_Administrator_Mail_Address

WP_Administrator_Mail_Address

Note:
This is not a must and you can have another email account for Mailchimp integration like [email protected]
It is a must to share the API generated for your Mailchimp account which is provided as the MC4WP API field under WordPress Dashboard that enables the integration.

2. Install MC4WP: Mailchimp for WordPress
Path: WordPress Dashboard>Plugin>Add Plugin> MC4WP

Mailchimp_Installation

Mailchimp_Installation

 

3. Activate MC4WP
After instalingMC4WP plugin, click on activate

4. Go to the WordPress dashboard and click on MC4WP to check the status.
You can see something as below where Mailchimp and WordPress site does not connect yet.

Mailchimp_Connection

Don’t worry, just go through this article to make it happen.

 

Create Gmail Account

Hope this may not be a big issue. Hence, please create your Gmail account as per the instructions unfolding when creating your email. If you still find it difficult, please do let us know in the comment section. Then, we’ll prepare a document for you on that as well.

 

Complete Mailchimp Account

1. User the Gmail created to access Mailchimp Account

Mailchimp_Signup_Screen

Mailchimp_Signup_Screen

Once you’ve successfully completed the signup process, you will get the below screen

Mailchimp_Signup_Verification

Mailchimp_Signup_Verification

You must go to your Gmail account and activate it. Hope you got a mail like below.

Mailchimp_Activation_Mail

Mailchimp_Activation_Mail

 

2. log in to your Mailchimp Account to find out the API for your Gmail Account. For a newcomer to Mailchimp, it is difficult to find the API. Hence, see how you can access your API.

Mailchimp_My_Dashboard

Mailchimp_My_Dashboard

 

From the list, select Account & Billing options.

Mailchimp_API_Key_Find

Mailchimp_API_Key_Find

 

3. You can see the Mailchimp dashboard screen as shown below. [05-Sep2022_Screen]
Click on Billing

Mailchimp_Extra_API

Mailchimp_API_Dashboard

 

4. Under the Billing tab, you may not see any API as this is the first time that you are going to create one. Click on the “Create A Key” button to create the API key to integrate with your WordPress site.

Mailchimp_Create_API_Key

Mailchimp_Create_API_Key

 

Integration

Go to WordPress dashboard> MC4WP> put the copied API key from Mailchimp in the API Key field and click on save charges.

Integration Go to WordPress dashboard> MC4WP> put the copied API key from Mailchimp in API Key field and click on save charges.

 

If you are getting the status as connected, then the process is completed, and all your subscribers connect to the Mailchimp list.
If you don’t get the status as connected, then carefully check the sequence that you just followed.

Hope this would help you to get connected your subscribers with Mailchimp and do email marketing and marketing automation. If you think this piece of article helps you by any means, please share it with your community and they also get benefited as you do. Nevertheless, you feel the same feeling that I’m getting after publishing this post.

    First of all, I want to say great blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there. I
    truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost
    just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?
    Thank you!

      Hi Shavonne,
      Thanks for your appreciation. Please follow the steps given below for your concern.
      1. Decide a topic
      2. Prepare the outline – basically the sub-topics
      3. Start writing by filling in the sub-topics.
      4. If it is a technical one, first you follow the instructions and check whether all the points you mentioned are accurate.
      5. Check the spelling
      6. Publish it.

      I just wrote my experience when I tried to Integrate MailChimp with my site. I thought it might be helpful for someone who doesn’t know coding and other technical stuff.
      I just wanted to help out someone like me and reduce their time spending a lot of time on a small thing like this.

    With having so much written content do you ever run into
    any problems of plagiarism or copyright violation?
    My blog has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either
    authored myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping up all
    over the web without my permission. Do you know any solutions
    to help protect against content from being ripped off?
    I’d definitely appreciate it.
