JT

Note: Integrating MailChimp with your Pipedrive account requires a MailChimp account. To create a MailChimp account, click here.


MailChimp is an email marketing service provider used to design and distribute email marketing campaigns. This impressive product can easily be integrated into Pipedrive, allowing you to export any desired list of contacts from Pipedrive into MailChimp, and begin your email campaigns. 

Note: This integration is not a full sync, and simply allows for a seamless export of your contacts from Pipedrive to a list in your MailChimp account. Only the contact person's name field and default email address field will be exported from Pipedrive into Mailchimp with the Mailchimp integration. Other integrations — like Outfunnel — may provide a sync between your MailChimp and Pipedrive accounts. 

Integrating MailChimp with Pipedrive

In Pipedrive, go to Tools and integrations > Integrations > Mailchimp >Connect now.

Creating an Audience in Mailchimp

Once you've connected Pipedrive with MailChimp, you will have the option to export your People to a MailChimp audience. If you do not have an audience in Mailchimp, you will first need to go to your Mailchimp account and create one.

To create an audience, go to MailChimp and click on Audience > Audience Dashboard > Create Audience. you can learn more about creating Audiences in this article

Note: If you export the same list of contacts to MailChimp on multiple occasions, you do not need to worry about creating duplicates in the MailChimp list, as MailChimp recognizes duplicate entries and ignore duplicated entries.

You will receive a confirmation when the process is complete.
