MailchimpAdd/Update Subscriber

The easiest way to make sure your contacts hear all your announcements is not to worry about it at all—automate the whole thing with this Gmail-MailChimp integration. After you set it up, we'll begin to watch your inbox. From then on, any new email that you receive (or optionally only those with a certain label) will trigger this Zap, passing your sender on to MailChimp and adding them as a new subscriber to any mailing list you need.

How It Works

  1. A new email is received on Gmail
  2. Zapier automation adds a subscriber on MailChimp
