Getting started with MailChimp

  • Updated

The MailChimp integration lets you collect email addresses through email capture forms on your website.

This guide is for existing MailChimp customers who are familiar with the platform. If you've never used MailChimp before, you can learn more over at Or use Umso Lists to collect email addresses.

1. Connect your account

Go to your account settings over here to connect your MailChimp account with Umso.

2. Add a form to your site

Open your site in the editor and insert an "Email Capture" or "Hero" section. In the "email capture" settings in that section, you can select the "Action". Then you will see your MailChimp lists. If you don't see any lists, make sure to create one in the MailChimp dashboard first.

3. Publish your site

As usual, you'll need to publish your site for the changes to be public. Now you're ready to receive email addresses! Make sure to test the form with your own email address to make sure everything is working as intended.

If you don't want to use MailChimp anymore or use a different account, you can disconnect your old account from your integration settings.
