Frequently Asked Questions

Below are answers to some common questions about MailChimp integration.

Where do I edit customer information?

Edit customer information in ShopKeep, not in MailChimp. Changes you make in ShopKeep automatically sync over to MailChimp. For 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. You can also manually unsubscribe customers from within MailChimp.
