The Fine Print

These are some of the details you’ll want to keep in mind as you get started with Center’s MailChimp integration: 

  • MailChimp uses double opt-in by default when integrating with Center, but you can also enable single opt-in. 
  • MailChimp includes basic form fields (email, first name, and last name). You can add custom fields to any list. Please see MailChimp’s article for more information here: Manage List and Signup Form Fields.
  • Form fields in MailChimp can be set up as hidden and/or required. It’s usually best to avoid making fields hidden and required—as this can prevent rules from functioning.
  • The historical data limit for MailChimp is one year.  

Integrating Center with MailChimp
