Your new contacts are useful across all your lists, whether you're maintaining multiple apps or migrating from one to another. This Zap can copy your contacts over, too, so you won't have to expend any effort. Once you've set things up, the automation will trigger when you update a contact or add a new one on ActiveCampaign, subscribing them to any list you want on MailChimp.

How this ActiveCampaign-MailChimp integration works

  1. A new contact is updated or added on ActiveCampaign
  2. Zapier automatically subscribes them to a list on MailChimp
