In this article, you'll learn about the Connected Sites page in MailChimp.
Before You Start
- You can connect a supported e-commerce store or manually connect a website to MailChimp.
After you connect a supported store, you can access our suite of e-commerce tools including abandoned cart automation, product retargeting emails, and more. If you manually connect a site, you can access pop-up forms and web retargeting ads.
- If you've connected a site or store prior to May 1, 2018, you must accept our additional terms to continue using product retargeting emails, pop-up forms, and Google remarketing ads that use shared site data.
Access Connected Sites
The Connected Sites page in your account is where you'll access and manage the sites and platforms that share data with your MailChimp account.

Add another site.
Connect Your E-Commerce Store
Each time you connect a supported e-commerce store to MailChimp, we'll walk you through the process. The steps you take to connect will vary depending on the type of store you have.
Check out one of these articles to learn how.
Connect Your Website
If you have a custom-coded website or use a site builder, like Squarespace or WordPress, you can add MailChimp's site code to your website's HTML. This method allows you to use pop-up forms and Google remarketing ads, but doesn’t support our e-commerce tools.
This is an advanced task and is recommended for users familiar with custom coding. If you need assistance, contact your developer, or hire a MailChimp Expert.
To connect your website to MailChimp, follow these steps.
- Navigate to the Connected Sites page.
- Click Get Started. If you've previously connected a site, click Add Another Site.
- Click Next in the lower-right corner.
- Enter your website URL.
- Click Next.
- Click the
Choose a list to connect drop-down menu, and choose a list.
- Click Next.
Copy and follow the instructions to add our code to your site's HTML.
- Click Connect.
- You'll see a confirmation message after we verify that the code has been successfully added to your site. Click Next.
- The best place to add our site code varies from platform to platform, so reach out to a developer or website administrator if you're not sure where to modify your site's HTML.
View Site Details
After you successfully connect your site, you'll be able to view and edit details for each connected site in your account on the Connected Sites page. If you have multiple connected sites, click the
Switch site drop-down menu to choose the site you want to view.
For each site, you can check connection status, review your synced list, and add a custom pop-up form to your site. Supported e-commerce store users can also access certain automation types from this page, like product retargeting emails, abandoned cart emails, and order notifications, and more.
