What's New Getting Started Drag and Drop Standard Builder Integrations

Migrating to MailChimp’s 3.0 API

MailChimp recently announced their decision to no longer support any API versions below v3.0. Our engineers are working on migrating the existing Legacy MailChimp integration to use the new MailChimp v3.0 API. New features are available when using the updated MailChimp API, including lead backup as well as being able to download your opt-ins as a CSV file.

NOTE: This does not affect any MailChimp integrations with our Drag & Drop Builder, which already use MailChimp’s more recent API.

If you choose to manually update any of your active Standard Leadpages, Leadboxes, Leadlinks, or Leaddigits to the updated MailChimp API version, here’s how:

  1. Create a new MailChimp integration at the account level so that you are connected through MailChimp v3.0 instead of Legacy MailChimp, as seen below.

    When you create the new integration, you can use any active API key from MailChimp—no need to use a special “3.0” key. For full instructions on finding your API key, see MailChimp’s article here. You can also have the two versions of the MailChimp API connected simultaneously.
  2. For each active (Standard) Leadpage, Leadlink, Leadbox, and Leaddigit using MailChimp, you will need to reload the integration options, select “MailChimp v3,” then reload your MailChimp lists and select one. 
  3. Save the updated integration (either by clicking the green Customize this form or blue Done button in your form’s sidebar settings). 
NOTE: In the new API version, you must link to a thank you page URL—leaving the thank you page URL field blank will not enable your MailChimp thank you page to appear. Read more about setting your thank you page here: How Do I Replace the Default Thank You Page With My Custom Thank You Page?

We recommend opting in to least one Leadpage or Leadbox using the MailChimp v3.0 integration to verify everything works as expected.
