MailChimp STS

    Hi! I'm trying to set up the plugin MailChimp. I have uploaded the plugin and installed it. The directions tell me I will need
    1) MailChimp account and API key (done)
    2) Amazon SES account with production access (I have signed up with Amazon)
    3) Verified email address to sue as sender (got it)

    The only place on the form to do anything is the blank next to "API key". I've cut and pasted in the key number given me.

    Now all I get is "API error. Please setup the integration first".

    How do I go about setting up the integration?

    I hope you can help. Thanks! -John

    John,

    Go ahead and proceed with the Amazon instructions. Once you complete the Amazon instructions and load your keys for that, see if the error goes away.

    You need to integrate your Amazon account with MailChimp account. This is not something plugin can, so its settings have no related fields.

    This is covered in readme.html, supplied with plugin, under 4. Integrate Amazon SES with MailChimp. Contextual help section (top of plugin's settings screen) has link to it.

    Hi everebody,

    I have the same problem than Somemono...
    1) MailChimp account and API key (done)
    2) Amazon SES account with production access (I have signed up with Amazon)
    3) Verified email address to sue as sender (got it)

    ===================================

    Enter Your Install Details for Amazon SES :

    1. First, sign up for SES. Go to http://aws.amazon.com/ses and click Sign Up for Amazon SES.
    2. Continue through the set up process by providing your payment information and telephone verification.
    3. Go to http://aws.amazon.com, click Account, then click Security Credentials.
    4. Navigate to the Access Credentials section of the page, and click the Access Keys tab.
    5. Follow the on-screen instructions to create a new Access Key ID and Secret Access Key.

    => I'm block at this section :

    6. In your MailChimp account at Account > Integrations copy/paste your Amazon AWS Key and AWS Secret in the Amazon integrations panel click "add AWS keys".

    Even I follow Instructions, I cannot find in my MailChimp account the field ""add AWS keys"" (???)

    Thanks a lot for your help
    regard,
    Ch.

    You should be able to access integration page at this link (or try Account > Integrations at MailChimp site):

    https://admin.mailchimp.com/account/integrations/

    And scroll until you find "Amazon Simple Email Service".

    Exactly Rarst,

    But when I scroll down this page, I only have this choice : "Transactional sending through Amazon SES is only available for monthly and pay-as-you-go accounts".

    and the newt step is in this page :

    I cannot find in my MailChimp account the field "add AWS keys" ?
    Thank for your help.
    regards,

    Ah! STS is currently only available on paid MailChimp accounts:

    Because this is so new, and because we really want to prevent abuse, this is only going to be available to our paying customers for the foreseeable future.

    http://blog.mailchimp.com/mailchimp-launches-transactional-email-service-on-top-of-amazon-ses/

    Note that you don't pay MailChimp for STS usage (you pay Amazon SES if you need more than their free limit), but you do need paid MailChimp account.

    Sorry for the confusion I will raise the issue to clarify this in plugin.

    Argggrrr... :o(
    I actually lost a lot of time with this issue ...

    Thank you for updating this information clearly on the page of your plugin: https://wordpress.org/extend/pluginsMailChimp-sts /

    So, could you please recommend us a wordpress plugin that can integrate MailChimp account to register/subscription for a newsletter?
    (free)
    Thank you

    Sorry again, I had only been working on more recent MailChimp plugins and they deal with utility functionality (like STS, it's not related to newsletter functionality of MailChimp).

    You can try looking through integrations directory http://connect.mailchimp.com/category/cms or contacting MailChimp directly http://kb.mailchimp.com/contact
