Add or Remove MonkeyRewards

This feature requires Manager user level or higher.

MonkeyRewards let you earn email credits for referring new paying customers to MailChimp. You can select the default design of your badge and also choose different badge designs for your signup forms and campaigns. If you have a Monthly or Pay As You Go account, you can remove the badge from individual campaigns or forms, or you can disable the MonkeyRewards badge for the whole account.

Set the Default Badge

MailChimp provides a few different styles for the badge that appears on your signup forms and campaigns. Follow the steps below to set the default badge style used when you create a new list or campaign.

  1. Click the profile name to open the Account Panel, and select Account.
  2. Click the Extras drop-down menu and select Rewards.
    Rewards Drop-down Menu
  3. Make sure the Show badge in campaigns box is checked.
  4. Under the Select your MonkeyRewards badges heading, click the Change link to choose a badge.
  5. Click the badge you want to use and the screen will refresh, leaving the new badge visible on the page.

Select a Badge for a Campaign

Wherever the *|REWARDS|* merge tag appears in your campaign, we replace it with the default MonkeyRewards badge that is selected in your Rewards settings. The default footers in Basic and Themes templates already have this merge tag included.

If you'd like to change how the badge appears on a specific campaign, follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to the Design step of the Campaign Builder.
  2. Select the Design option on the right side of the page.
  3. Click the MonkeyRewards option.
  4. Select the badge you want.
  5. Click the Save & Close button to apply the changes.

Select a Badge for a Signup Form

When you create a signup form for a list, it includes a MonkeyRewards badge by default. Below, you'll learn how to display a different version of the badge.

  1. Navigate to the Lists page.
  2. Click on the list drop-down menu and select Signup forms.
  3. Select the General forms option.
  4. Select the form you want to edit from the Forms and response emails drop-down menu.
  5. Click on the Design it tab and select MonkeyRewards.
  6. Use the drop-down menus to turn the rewards badge on or off and set the Image Align. Click the Change link to change the look of the badge.

Remove MonkeyRewards Badge from a Paid Account

The MailChimp MonkeyRewards badge can be removed on Monthly or Pay As You Go accounts. Emails sent from our Forever Free plan are required to include the MailChimp MonkeyRewards badge in the email footer.

When you disable MonkeyRewards on an account, new lists and campaigns that you create will no longer display the badge. The change will not affect the forms and campaigns that were in your account before the badge was disabled. Below, you'll learn how to remove the badge globally or turn it off for just specific campaigns and forms.
