Easily keep in touch with all your customers! This Zap will automatically add members to a mailing list in MailChimp when a successful sale is made through PayPal.

How it Works

Zapier will watch your PayPal account for new sales. When a sale is made, Zapier will copy the customer's details to a MailChimp list of your choice.

What You Need

  1. A PayPal account, and the ability to make a test sale.
  2. A MailChimp account with a list for your customers.

Got that? Then let's get started.
