Synchro MailChimp

Description

The plugin permits administrators to subscribe/unsubscribe WordPress users to MailChimp by a checkbox on the WordPress user settings page. Every user, depending on their roles and the template defined in plugin settings page, can be associated to MailChimp lists and interests. “Synchro MailChimp” requires “MailChimp for WordPress” plugin to work properly.

Screenshots

  • If your MailChimp has no lists the settings page shows empty list for every role.

  • If your MailChimp has lists and groups the settings page shows them for every role, ready for configuration.

  • We can select lists, interests of corresponding groups for the role we need. "Save Settings" will save this configuration.

  • In User Settings page, for the role we checked the list we can actually subscribe the user with the subscription checkbox.

  • We can check/uncheck the checkbox and the plugin will subscribe/unsubscribe the user following the configuration of the plugin settings page.

  • If the subscribing/unsusribing process is successful we get a feedback.

  • We can chek on MailChimp to see the subscription result.

Subscription was successful, but on MailChimp lists are not updated

Sometimes the MailChimp lists view doesn’t refresh quickly. Wait and refresh the browser to get an updated page with the expected results.

I get error message claiming: “your email has signed up to a lot of lists very recently; we’re not allowing more signups for now”

For security reasons MailChimp can temporary ban email addresses that subscribe/unsubscribe too often. This issue is due to MailChimp policy, and not to Synchro MailChimp Plugin.
