Description

Join the 16 million customers who use MailChimp, the world’s largest marketing automation platform, to develop their e-commerce marketing strategy. With the official MailChimp for WooCommerce integration, your customers and their purchase data are automatically synced with your MailChimp account, making it easy to send targeted campaigns, automatically follow up with customers post-purchase, recommend products, recover abandoned carts, and measure the ROI of your marketing efforts. And it’s completely free.

With MailChimp for WooCommerce, you’ll have the power to:

  • Showcase product recommendations.
  • Track and segment customers based on purchase history and purchase frequency.
  • View detailed data on your marketing performance in your MailChimp Dashboard.
  • Grow your audience and sell more stuff with Facebook and Instagram Ad Campaigns in MailChimp.
  • Automatically embed a pop-up form that converts your website visitors to subscribers.
  • Add discount codes created in WooCommerce to your emails and automations with a Promo Code content block

A note for current WooCommerce integration users

This plugin supports our most powerful API 3.0 features, and is intended for users who have not yet integrated their WooCommerce stores with MailChimp.

You can run this new integration at the same time as your current WooCommerce integration for MailChimp. However, data from the older integration will display separately in subscriber profiles, and can’t be used with e-commerce features that require API 3.0.

Reviews

Conflicts with Stripe Payment Processing

I thought the plugin would be great if it didn’t conflict with other functionality. The plugin broke my integration points with my payment processor (Stripe) and would not allow my customers to checkout. After removing the plugin, my customers were able to go through the checkout process with no problems. If this could be fixed to work in conjunction with Stripe, I would consider using the plugin as a means of taking advantage of MailChimp’s automation emails.

Works without problems

Having seen the reviews I wasn’t sure about installing this plugin. Once setted up API, company datas and mailchimp list it worked. Now I see customer and the products they’ve bought directly in mailchimp list.
Maybe this plugin (or the API cnnection) can slow down things. I’ll do some tests, but I confirm that this plugin do the job.

Stopped Stripe from working

Stopped Stripe from working and gave our site Javascript and JQuery problems which practically brought our website to it’s knees. Best thing we did by getting rid of it. Pity we can’t give zero stars as one is way too many.

Total crap

Doesn’t work. My site meets all the requirements and yet I cannot get this plugin to properly sync. I have tried every trouble-shooting suggestion Mailchimp provides. I have chatted online with their support. It simply does not work, which is too bad because it is a great concept. I would venture to say this is the worst WordPress plugin I have ever used (and I have endured some really bad plugins). This should be pulled from the WordPress plugin directory until it actually functions.
