Setting Up Your MailChimp Integration

November 19, 2014 Uberflip Customer Success

Setting up your MailChimp integration can be done from two different places: the Integrations page, and when creating a new form CTA for the first time.

MailChimp uses an API key provided to you through their service in order to integrate with Uberflip. 

If starting from the Integrations page, navigate to the MailChimp connection. MailChimp is classified as marketing automation software and works directly with Form CTAs. Click on the blue 'Connect' button.

On the popup that appears, you will be prompted to enter your MailChimp API Key. To find your MailChimp API key, click the link under the instructions to be taken to MailChimp.

You can also find the information by logging in to your MailChimp account and visiting Account > Extras > API Keys and clicking "Create A Key".

Once the required information has been entered, clicking the 'Enter API Info' button will make sure a connection is possible.  If the information was not valid or on the off chance that MailChimp is down, you will see an error telling you “Invalid - Something’s wrong with the API Information” underneath the entered fields.

Another Approach to Integrating MailChimp

Integrating MailChimp with your Hub can also be initiated by creating a new Form CTA (if you have not done so already).  

Either click the side menu button '+new' beside 'Call-to-actions' and then click on the Form CTA option,  or in the CTA page click the '+ New Form CTA' button that appears when you hover over 'Form CTAs' in the top nav. 

This will bring up the service selection part of the Form CTA creation (see screenshot below).  If you click on the 'MailChimp' logo, the same popup's from the integrations page will come up and you'll be prompted to enter your API information.  The same steps apply to finish this process - enter the required info and click Submit.

That's it! You've integrated MailChimp with your Hub!
