How does Mailchimp work?
Here are some key things you should know about Mailchimp functionality as your email marketing tool on Shopify:
A critical first step to getting started with Mailchimp is setting up your audience. Whether you’re starting from scratch, or bringing existing contacts into Mailchimp, your audience is where you’ll store and manage all your contact data.
When you integrate your Shopify store with Mailchimp, all your customers will be added as audiences to your Mailchimp account.
Customers who opt-in to receive email marketing at checkout are imported as subscribed contacts, while customers who choose not to receive email marketing will appear as non-subscribed contacts. Repeat customers will sync to Mailchimp as subscribed whether or not they reaccept marketing.
Tags, groups, and segments are the main audience management tools you’ll find in Mailchimp. Learn more about how they work together.
Tags are built for your own, internal audience organization. If you want your contacts to self-select an interest or category for themselves, use groups first and then apply tags as needed.
Groups can be used to sort subscribed contacts based on their interests and preferences. Only subscribed contacts can be added to groups, but unsubscribed contacts will retain their group designations.
You can use your audience information to filter contacts into segments, and then target them with email, postcards, or ad campaigns.
How to integrate Subify into Mailchimp?
Method 1: Mailchimp Tags & Groups
Use the Tags & Groups section in Mailchimp to defile rules based on Subify automated tags for orders and customers and create tags or interest groups in Mailchimp:
You can enable Subify automated orders or customer tags from Subify > Settings > Tag Management. Subify will then put automated tags on orders and customers that have a subscription product or membership.
You can enable 8 types of automatic tags in Subify for subscription orders and customers:
Any customer who's had at least one subscription.
When the tag management is enabled, all the orders Subify creates are automatically tagged with "subify subscriptions".
Any customer with an active subscription.
The first order of a subscription plan gets tagged with "First subscription order".
Any customer with a paused subscription.
This tag defines the number of recurring orders in the customer's subscription: Recurring order #1, Recurring order #2, ...
Any customer with A canceled subscription.
Using these tags, you can define a rule in the Mailchimp Shopify app based on actions about your subscribers or subscription orders:
Go to the Tags & Group tab on the Mailchimp app on Shopify.
Click on Build a Rule.
Define your rule criteria based on Subify order tags or customer tags.
Choose an action related to MailChimp (add customer tags or interest groups).
Save your rule.
Login to your MailChimp account and review the tags or interest groups you have added.
Run your campaigns and flows using these tags and groups.
Method 2: Mailchimp- Shopify customer tag mapper
Use the Shopify Customer Tag Mapper section in Mailchimp to sync Subify automated tags for customers with your Mailchimp audience:
Go to the Shopify Customer Tag Mapper tab on the Mailchimp app on Shopify.
Add the Subify customer tags that you want to keep in sync with your Mailchimp audience.
Login to your MailChimp account and review the tags you have added.
Run your campaigns and flows using these tags.
