Connect Mailchimp to your POWR Form to grow your Mailchimp list. To set this up, follow these steps:
- Step 1
- Open the POWR Editor (App Settings in Wix)
- In the Settings tab, go to the Integrations section and select Mailchimp
- Sign into your Mailchimp account to authenticate the integration
- Step 2
- Select the audience (previously referred to as lists) from your Mailchimp account for your POWR form responses
- Step 3
- Match any required Mailchimp fields with POWR Form Elements to map responses to the appropriate fields/columns in Mailchimp
- Select optional Mailchimp fields from your audience list from the dropdown and match with other POWR Form Elements
- Once you have your Mailchimp fields mapped to POWR form elements, click “Save Integration”
I set all the settings exactly to the specifications above and it will not add the record to my Mailchimp list.
Same problem as Chris Taylor - everything seems set up the way it's supposed to be, I'm receiving the email notification, but it is not adding the result to my MailChimp list!
Hi Matt! Very often, the problem is that the required fields in your Mailchimp list settings don't match the required fields in your Form Builder. Make sure that you have a corresponding required field with merge tags for each field that is required in Mailchimp. If that doesn't solve the issue, please submit a ticket with a link to your Form Builder and screenshots of your Mailchimp list settings so we can help you make this work. Thank you!
How do I connect the GDPR field to Mailchimp's GDPR field? Neither POWr nor Mailchimp shows merge tags for that. Thanks,
Unfortunately, there isn't currently a straightforward way to connect the GDPR element to Mailchimp. As you pointed out, this isn't something that Mailchimp provides as a form field. However, we do think there might be a way to make this work with Mailchimp's double opt-in settings. Our team is looking into it and we'll reach out once we have more information on this 😊
Following up on your question from last week. We have now added a Merge Tag field to the GDPR element and you can use it for recording the permissions in your Mailchimp list.
I'm having trouble getting my POWr form to connect to my Mailchimp list. On both the form and the mailchimp list I have a phone field and an address field. When I edit the POWr form, I can add Merge Tags for everything except the EMAIL, ADDRESS and PHONE fields. I checked the help info and saw that the EMAIL tag isn't really used in POWr; apparently I just turn on the "Subscribe to Mailchimp" option.
However, even though I have both the PHONE and ADDRESS fields set to "required", I'm not being given an option to add a Merge Tag for them. Since everything else seems to be set up correctly, I'm guessing the fact that I can't merge the Phone and Address fields is the reason I've not had any of the sign-ups added to my Mailchimp list.
Any idea what I can do to fix it?
The Phone field in Mailchimp requires the number to be in a very specific format. Because our phone field doesn't require the number to be entered in a specific format, the error rate for signups failing due to an unsupported format would be too big.
If your list requires a phone number, we recommend that you use a regular text field both in the Mailchimp settings and in the POWr Form Builder settings. That way, the number will come through no matter which format was used.
Hope this helps!
Nothing has changed on our end that should have caused this. The "Email" field should have a "Subscribe to Mailchimp" toggle instead of the merge field (since that field is always required and matches our email field format).
To find out what the issue is, our support team would need to see a screenshot of your Mailchimp settings as well as get a link to your form. Please send all of that to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can help you get this working again!
Just signed up and am having a related issue.
A submitted form's info is showing up in my MailChimp, but the address info is not showing up in my MailChimp contact. Similar to Bill's question earlier, since we cannot specify an "Address" merge tag/field, how can we have the address element sync up with MailChimp's address field?
The best workaround for this is to use a generic Text Box element in POWr to request the address from your submitters and sync that to a regular Text element in Mailchimp. That way, no matter in which format the address is entered it will go to your Mailchimp list.
You can always use multiple Text Box elements to construct your address component in a POWr form (and on Mailchimp's end) if you'd still like to separate street address, zip code, and country, for example.
Hope this helps!
Yup, I ended up doing that, thanks for confirming!
Sweet, hope that works!
This does not work.
During the start of the integration process, Mailchimp requests me to accept all cookies.
After, it will not lift the barrier when I accept the cookies. I have ALL COOKIES SETTING WIDE OPEN.
I have tried this on multiple browsers on multiple devices.
Hi Ron! This issue is on Mailchimp's end. We have reached to them and hope they will have a fix soon. In the meantime, try going to mailchimp.com directly, accept cookies, then try connecting your app again. You may have to double-check your browser settings to make sure cookies are allowed in your browser (or else it will keep prompting you to accept Mailchimp's cookies).
If you keep having issues, we can send you the unique authorization link for your app. Please contact our support team so we can send you that :)
