MailChimp Sync for Eventbrite is a free extension for your Eventbrite account that can help you communicate with event attendees. Automatically sync your event attendees to MailChimp, send tailored email campaigns for your events, and view ticket purchase information in your reports and subscriber profiles.
In this article, you’ll learn how to use MailChimp Sync for Eventbrite.
Before You Start
Here are some things to know before you begin this process.
Events are synced to your MailChimp account after at least one person purchases a ticket to your event.
Eventbrite syncs to only one MailChimp list at a time, so you may have attendees for several events in the same list.
Only one email address can be saved per event purchase. If an attendee purchases multiple tickets at once, only one email address is added to your MailChimp list.
MailChimp Sync for Eventbrite has been updated with API 3.0 functionality so you can segment by purchase activity. However, Eventbrite does not support certain automations like Abandoned Cart, First Purchase, and Order Notifications.
Connect MailChimp Sync
To set up MailChimp Sync for Eventbrite, follow these steps.
Visit the MailChimp Sync page in the Eventbrite Spectrum extensions directory.
Click Install App.
You’ll be asked to log in to your Eventbrite account if you're not already logged in.
If you have not previously given permission to connect MailChimp Sync to Eventbrite, click Allow. Otherwise, click Connect with MailChimp.
In the pop-up modal, input your MailChimp username and password, and click Log In.
Choose whether to sync attendees from all events or selected events. If you choose Attendees from the selected events, check the boxes for the events you want to include.

Click Start syncing.
Current and new attendees to your selected Eventbrite events will automatically be added to the selected MailChimp list.
View Eventbrite Data in MailChimp
After you set up MailChimp Sync for Eventbrite, you can view ticket buyers and their data in the following places.
When an attendee is added to your MailChimp list from Eventbrite, the following information is included in their subscriber profile.
Attendee email address, first name, and last name.
Attendee list Signup source: Eventbrite.
Attendee’s Eventbrite ticket purchases.
If an attendee’s email address is already in your MailChimp list, MailChimp Sync won’t overwrite any data, but it will add their event ticket purchases to the E-commerce tab of their profile.
Segment your list by purchase activity to view contacts in your list who purchased tickets to a particular event.

With MailChimp Sync, you can select an Eventbrite event and add it to a new MailChimp campaign.
