Mailchimp is software which gives you the ability to create and manage mailing lists, newsletters, automated marketing campaigns and more. It is one of the most widely used email marketing systems in the world. Our integration allows for your data syncing of records between both Mailchimp and TicketSearch, saving you time in having to export records to Mailchimp to send a campaign.
Mailchimp can be found under Marketing > Email & SMS Marketing. To setup your Mailchimp integration, go to Mailchimp/SMS Settings and follow the process on below screen to access your API KEY in Mailchimp, and copy/paste across to your TicketSearch account. The following link provides useful information on how to find your Mailchimp key https://mailchimp.com/help/about-api-keys/. It’s important to note that the number of Mailchimp lists you sync must match the opt in’s you create via Settings > Organisation Settings > General Settings – Marketing Opt-ins.
Once this process is completed, your Mailchimp account will be connected, and the setting page will look like below screen.
