Connecting Mailchimp to your account

If you’re using MailChimp to manage your customer relationships and you’d like to link up your  account with your E-commerce store, here’s how to do it:

How to get started

  1. Log in to your account and click E-commerce

  2. Click on Apps > App Store

  3. Find the MailChimp app and install the app to your store by clicking Free > Install

  1. Find your API key in Mailchimp and copy your API Key from within your MailChimp account.

  2. Paste your API key in the MailChimp app settings in your IZO account and click Save

  1. Select which mailing list to funnel your  customers into. Already made sales? Export past data into your mailing list by enabling the Export features for existing customers, orders or both.

  2. Click Save to begin the process of transferring over previous orders/customers or to simply save your settings if this is your first time setting up MailChimp and you haven't made any orders

  3. The details of all future customers will be automatically added to your mailing list every time a sale is made, so they can be kept up to date with the latest news with your business


Creating Segments in MailChimp

If you would like to create segments to filter your contacts based on information collected during the checkout process, segments are the way to go.

  • To use segments you must first create a list in your account

Get started with segments:

  1. Log in to your MailChimp account and go to the Lists page and click the name of the list you want to work with

  2. Click: Create A Segment

  3. Set the drop-down menus to something like  Product Purchased | is | [Item name]

  4. Preview your segment and click Save

  5. Give your segment a name like 'Book purchases'

  6. Check the Auto-update box if you want MailChimp to update the segment when new orders match the conditions

  7. For detailed steps and more complex options, check out MailChimp's support article here.
