Mailchimp integration

Updated 2 years ago by Jeremy Tang

Our powerful Mailchimp integration automatically creates and/or updates your Mailchimp contact records with enriched data from your Humanitix orders.

Rather than simply creating one Mailchimp Audience Member per Humanitix order, Humanitix syncs data to Mailchimp through their E-commerce Stores API. This adds contacts to Mailchimp with a richer set of data that can be linked back to the Humanitix order, and track customer activity over time. 

As per Mailchimp’s recommendations you can choose a single Audience (sometimes referred to as List) to sync to.

Setting up Mailchimp

Head to "Account" on the top menu bar.

Click "Advanced" > "Integrations" > "Mailchimp"

Clicking the card navigates to the Event Overview page in the Humanitix console, clicking on the order name navigates to the order detail page.

Information like Event: Event Name showing as “Tags”. Tags are visible in multiple places including the Audience page.

Subscription and Opt in 

Please read Mailchimp's permission definitions:

When a customer checks “Keep me updated on the latest news, events, and exclusive offers from the event organiser” during checkout, this flags the order with “organiserMailListOptIn”. This is sent to Mailchimp as “opt in status” From the Mailchimp docs:

This value will never overwrite the opt-in status of a pre-existing Mailchimp list member, but will apply to list members that are added through the e-commerce API endpoints. Customers who don't opt in to your Mailchimp list will be added as Transactional members.

This means that we sync all order emails, but only those with organiserMailListOptIn set to true will be Subscribed.
