Connect or Disconnect MailChimp for PrestaShop

The MailChimp module for PrestaShop adds your PrestaShop store customers and their order details to your MailChimp list. Use PrestaShop data to track sales, create targeted e-commerce campaigns, generate custom product recommendations, and more.

In this article, you'll learn how to connect and disconnect MailChimp for PrestaShop.

Before You Start

  • The MailChimp module for PrestaShop works with all versions of PrestaShop 1.6 - 1.7.2.3.

  • This module is compatible with all of our latest e-commerce features, including abandoned cart emails, order notifications, product retargeting emails, and product recommendations.

How it Works

When you connect your PrestaShop store to MailChimp, we'll update your MailChimp list, or create a new list, with each customer's email address, name, and order information. To create a new list, your store contact information must include a physical address. We'll also generate a permission reminder for customers who opt in to receive your email marketing. To change the contact information or permission reminder for a list after it's created, edit its required footer content in MailChimp.

Customers who opt in to your list at checkout are imported as subscribed contacts, while customers who choose not to receive marketing emails will appear as non-subscribed contacts. You'll collect more contacts as new people purchase from you, and future orders will be synced automatically.
