Frequently Asked Questions

Continue below for answers to some common questions about MailChimp integration.

Where do I edit customer information?

Edit customer information in ShopKeep, not in MailChimp. The integration automatically syncs any changes you make in ShopKeep over to MailChimp.

If you need help managing customers in ShopKeep, visit our Manage Customers article.

Where do I delete customers?

Delete customers in ShopKeep, not in MailChimp. When you delete a customer in ShopKeep, the integration automatically removes that customer from MailChimp.

Will every customer I email a receipt to receive MailChimp emails?

Yes. When you email a receipt to a new customer, they are automatically added to your customer list and their information syncs to MailChimp.

How can a customer opt out of receiving my MailChimp emails?

Customers can click unsubscribe in the footer of any MailChimp email to elect not to receive future emails.
