Collect Phone Numbers Through Mailchimp Forms

It’s easy to collect phone numbers directly from your Mailchimp forms! All you have to do is add an additional field for phone numbers. With our integration enabled, your subscribers’ numbers will be passed automatically from Mailchimp to SimpleTexting.

You can also enable double opt-in. This way, you can be sure you’re only texting interested customers. After someone enters their phone number, we’ll send them a text confirmation. To confirm their subscription, they just need to reply Y or YES.

How to Sync SimpleTexting and MailChimp

Let’s take a closer look at the syncing sequence to give you a better idea of this integration in action! Once you open the Mailchimp app on your SimpleTexting dashboard, you’re prompted to log in to your account.
"Mailchimp app in the SimpleTexting dashboard."
Once you’re in, you’ll need to add a new sync to get started. Each “Sync” will link together a SimpleTexting subscriber list and a Mailchimp subscriber list—like the one below that combines internal communication contact lists for both platforms.

To verify your sync was complete, you can go into your ‘Subscribers’ tab and select the list you merged with. Under the opt-in method column, any contacts from the merge will be classified as coming from Mailchimp!
