Add Subscriber to a MailChimp list (Zapier)

Often times you may want to automatically add a new MemberPress subscriber to your MailChimp list, upon having a 'Complete' Transaction. Our MemberPress and Zapier integration makes this pretty simple to do.

Step:1 Login and Start Creating a Zap

Login to your Zapier account and click on the "Make a Zap" button in the top right corner.

Step 2: Creating a MemberPress Trigger

Search for MemberPress in the search bar and then click on it once you find it.

Next you will click on the Member Signup Completed Trigger Option. Then click on the Save + Continue button

Select your MemberPress account, then click on the Save + Continue button.

Note: If you haven't connected your MemberPress account yet, click on the Connect an Account button to connect it before moving forward with this step.

The next page shows a sample of data pulled from MemberPress on your site. You can use the default one created or you can search for specific data that you want to test with. We will use the default in this case. When finished, click Continue.

Step 3: Creating a MailChimp Action Trigger

There are 2 options to start creating an Action Trigger. Either click Add a Step or click or click the link provided.

Search for MailChimp and select it from the drop-down list.

On the following page, select Add/Update Subscriber. Then click on the Save + Continue button.

Next, click on the Connect Account to connect your MailChimp account

Enter your MailChimp account username and login. Then click the Login button

Once connected, your MailChimp account will be selected by default. Click on the Save + Continue.

On this page, you will need to select the required fields for the subscriber. Select the Audience list retrieved from your MailChimp account. Click the drop-down option in the Subscriber email field to select the "Email" field value. Set the "Update Existing" to "no" so that updates aren't made to an existing email address already found on your MailChimp list.

Scroll down a little further on that page and include other optional subscriber value fields like the First Name and Last Name. Then click the "Continue" button to save your selections.

On the following page, you can then test to make sure that your test subscriber gets added correctly to your MailChimp list by clicking the Send Test to MailChimp button. Double-check your MailChimp list to see if the subscriber was added. 

Once verified, you can click on the Finish button to complete the testing step.

As a final step on the next page, you'll need to name your zap and then click on the switch option to Turn ON your zap.

Once you have done that, try to do a live signup in MemberPress as a test subscriber, and make sure that the email address and name gets added to your MailChimp Audience list.
