Using Mailchimp to automate your email marketing? Good news! Thinkific's Mailchimp integration makes it super easy to make sure that any new users are automatically added to your mailing list.
In this article:
Connect your Mailchimp Account
- Go to Market & Sell
- Select Integrations
- Select Email Marketing
- In the Mailchimp block, click Connect Account
- You will be redirected to Mailchimp’s login page
- Input your Mailchimp login information
- Once you've successfully logged into Mailchimp, you'll be taken back to Thinkific
- In the dropdown menus in Thinkific, select your desired mailing list
- Click the Save button, and that's it!
Whenever a new user account is created with your Thinkific site, that person's first name, last name and email address will be sent to your mailing list in Mailchimp.
Your Mailchimp list must not include any required fields or else adding users to the selected list will fail as Thinkific only sends first name, last name, and email address.

Got multiple mailing lists?
Our direct Mailchimp integration is a simple way of making sure that any of your Thinkific users are automatically added to your Mailchimp account. If you're looking to have users sent to different lists based on which course they enroll in for example, that can be handled via our integration with Zapier.
