MailchimpAdd/Update Subscriber

Salesforce is a highly effective CRM-centric database platform driving many successful sales teams. Use Zapier to start adding your contacts as new subscribers on a MailChimp list as they are created. Once you set up this integration, new Salesforce contacts created from that point forward are individually added as a new subscriber on a MailChimp list.

Note: This Zapier integration doesn't create MailChimp subscribers from existing Salesforce contacts, only contacts that are created after you've set it up.

How It Works

  1. A new Salesforce contact is created.
  2. Zapier adds the data submitted to a MailChimp list as a subscriber.

What You Need

  • Salesforce account
  • MailChimp account
