You need to connect your Mailchimp account to your PushPress account to sync the data. 

Go to Apps in the main menu and select App Store

Find your Mailchimp API Key. Log onto Mailchimp.

In Mailchimp, go to 'Account' (bottom left by your Initial)

Select Extras -> API Keys

Create A Key

Copy this API Key (37 characters) from MC and paste into PP where it says 'Mailchimp API Key'

Select your Default Members List

Managing Mailchimp Audience

With the Mailchimp integration in place we send data to a Primary Audience. This audience can then be segmented based on the attributes that we send over

The Primary audience will contain a list of all your members, past members and leads. Think of this Primary list as a global membership list where you can segment and target people based off certain attributes. Use the Plan List if you want to target people on a specific plan.

Mailchimp Members List (primary)

• each member will be only on here once, but they may have multiple plans. This is where it gets tricky with "Member Status" as it will display the value for the most recent plan that has been updated.

The "Member Status" attribute could be [active, cancelled, paused, pendcancel, completed]. This will automatically be updated when the status of ANY plan gets updated from the PushPress side.

Once in mailchimp view your audience to begin building your segments.

Here is a video walk through of how to build your segments in your Audience.

Attribute Definitions

The following is a list of attributes PushPress passes over to Mailchimp when data is updated. There is also name and address fields not listed below, I omitted those because its pretty obvious.

Is Lead : [0 or 1] 0 means they are not a lead. 1 means they are currently in the lead funnel.
