Need to send one-off emails when new people subscribe to your MailChimp mailing list? You can use Zapier to automatically send template Mandrill emails to your new subscribers, to welcome them to your list, share extra info, and more. After this integration is set up, new MailChimp subscribers added from that point forward will get an email welcoming them.

How It Works

  1. A new subscriber is added to a MailChimp list.
  2. Zapier sends a template email to that subscriber.

What You Need

  • A MailChimp account
  • A Mandrill account
