Important: Please note that Mailchimp stores a cookie for one year to prevent a pop-up from being seen repeatedly after closing or completing it. If you are going to test the pop-up window in your store, you may need to delete the cookies from your browser, use a different browser or open an incognito window of the browser to be able to view it several times, especially if you make changes in it and want to view them directly in your store.


Import customers from your Jumpseller store using the Mailchimp App

The Mailchimp app works to improve the way you manage your customer lists.

It will allow you to synchronize the contact information of your Jumpseller customers in a Mailchimp list, and in this way, all the customers who buy from your store will be at your fingertips to execute email marketing strategies.

This application can be found in the application gallery of your store, in the Administration Panel > Applications.


Configuration

  1. Subscribe to Mailchimp. If you are already subscribed, just login on the platform.

  2. You will need an API key to connect your Mailchimp account to your online store on Jumpseller. To get your API key, click here.

  3. Next, click on “Create a key”, and once it is generated, copy it as seen below:

    mailchimp api key

  4. Go to your admin panel in Jumpseller > Apps > Mailchimp and click Install App > Yes, Authorize

  5. Paste the API key (in this example it’s: 91c86aba8970379439c9bbb3e6848d77-us5 ) into the Mailchimp API key field, as seen in the following image:

    mailchimp paste api key

    If the API key was verified successfully, you will be able to choose the Mailchimp list that you want your store customers to be part of. However, if the API key is incorrect, it will not allow you to select a list or check the boxes.

Important: If the API key does not work and you are sure it is correct, the problem could be related to an ad blocker or some pop-up blocker in your browser. In that case, please disable it, otherwise it may not work properly.

There are two optional check boxes you can select:

Send double opt-in confirmation: If this box is checked, emails will be sent to all customers to confirm if they want to subscribe. The message will be sent with the phrase: “Do you confirm that you want to subscribe to this Mailchimp list?”.

Unsubscribe: If this box is checked, all clients who do not accept email marketing will be eliminated from the subscription list.

After you click on Import Customers to Mailchimp you should see a success message like this one:
