Disconnect Your Site

To disconnect your site, you'll need to remove it in MailChimp and remove the integration from your e-commerce store. Or, if you manually connected a site, remove our code from your website's HTML.

If a site is disconnected, we'll automatically pause e-commerce automations that use shared site data. If you want to reconnect your site later, be sure to follow the complete installation instructions for your e-commerce platform or website and restart any affected automations.

To disconnect your site, follow these steps.

  1. Click your profile name, and choose Connected Sites.
    Cursor clicks profile name and chooses connected sites.
  2.  If you have multiple connected sites, click the Switch site drop-down menu to choose the site you want to disconnect.
    Cursor clicks switch site drop-down menu.
  3. Click Disconnect.
    Cursor clicks the Remove Site button.
  4. In the Are you sure? pop-up modal, click Disconnect.

If you added our site code to your website's HTML, you'll need to remove it manually to completely disconnect your site. The code should be located before the closing </head> tag in the HTML of each webpage you connected to MailChimp. Contact your developer or website administrator if you need assistance.
