Important Information and FAQ
View some of the more frequently asked questions. Click on a question for answers!
How much does MailChimp integration cost?
There is no charge to link your MailChimp account with ShopKeep.
Where do I edit customer information?
Customer information should only be edited in ShopKeep. The integration automatically syncs data from ShopKeep to MailChimp so you can continue to manage customers as normal.
Do I need to log in to MailChimp through ShopKeep every time to save or edit customers?
No. The login to MailChimp is a one time process. Once you’ve logged into MailChimp through ShopKeep, the integration is complete and syncs are automatic.
Does every customer who selects email receipts opt in to emails?
Yes, because you are capturing their email at the register and this syncs with your customer list in BackOffice. Your customer list grows every time you email a receipt to a customer.
How does a customer elect to not receive my emails?
A customer can click unsubscribe in the footer of any MailChimp email to opt out of receiving future emails.
I already use MailChimp and have multiple lists, can I use those as well?
Currently, you can only sync your ShopKeep customer information with one MailChimp list.
Does all customer information get synced to MailChimp?
Only your customer’s first name, last name, and email address syncs from ShopKeep to MailChimp. Any other data collected in ShopKeep, such as phone or notes does not get sent.
