WooCommerce MailChimp
[resolved] Groups are not passed through to mailchimp (4 posts)

    The subscribe action functions correctly, but fails to setup the group according to the value entered in the admin:

    The group label matches the value setup in Mailchimp for that list:

    But in the tests, the group does not get filled in on the record added by the plug-in via the check-out process:

    I've enabled wp-debug but did not notice any errors being reported.

    Do I need to enter the group ID instead of the label, or is this just another bug caused by the WooCommerce 2.1 update?

    P.S. I've even tried to enter that value in the 'groups' section and that did not help either.

    I've done a different test on a separate WP+Woo+MailChimp+your plug-in installation and oddly enough it added the user into the wrong group - not the one specified in the admin, under the Group Name section.
    If I erase it, it adds the user without a group name - which is correct, so it's a matter of figuring out which group the user should be added to, and I think it's not picking up the name correctly.

    MailChimp groups are a little strange.

    The Group Name setting in the plugin settings should be the parent in your screenshot that reads, "Joined the list as..."

    Then, for the Groups setting in the plugin settings, that is where you should put "customer"

    Change that and let me know if it works for you.

    Thank you very much for the quick reply!
    I've issued a pull request with an addition to the readme that might add clarity on the correct data to use when configuring this section.
