MailChimp - Bi-Directional Synch?

Sorry is this is a newbie question.



Is the expectation that the MailChimp integration is Bi-Directional? I was assuming that. But when I tested by added a new lead to MC. It didn’t synch over. I have the integration set up correctly.

Just in case anyone else is looking for the answer on this - we answered it on Github here:

https://github.com/mautic/mautic/issues/225

I think email list sync from MailChimp to Mautic will make life easier.
I said this because, MailChimp integration is available with almost most of the lead capturing systems.
Small hack! But it will make life quite easy for Mautic users.

Can i please have the link for the API connection of Mailchimp to Mautic. The one supplied no longer works and i have searched but ould not find the new one.

Here is the latest i could find.

https://zapier.com/dashboard/auth/oauth/return/App26793API/

Do you mean this?:

https://www.mautic.org/docs/plugins/mailchimp.html

no. I want to go from Mailchimp TO Mautic.

Oh. Not sure how to do that. It is possible to export leads from Mailchimp to a CSV file and import them to Mautic. But I guess you want an automatic way. If Mailchimp can send a request to Mautic, maybe it could be done this way:

The API is described here:

https://developer.mautic.org/#rest-api

But I think that the authorization would be problem in this case.

Smackcoders claim to have a plugin for Vtiger that received statistics and more from Mailchimp.
If Mailchimp can send it to Vtiger, it must be able to send it to Mautic right?
Could somebody build that.

We can use many tools to build a list on mailchimp. However, being able to pull the list and/or auto sync will make live much easier for marketers.

Administrator, I wish to encourage you to look at the options!

Question what Mailchimp can do that Mautic don’t?
The only thing I notice Mailchimp do that Mautic don’t is the RSS To Email

I’m sorry, but you are wrong here. We can collect facebook leads emails using several means. These will go automatically to mailchimp. We want to be able to setup campaigns on mautic to track & nurture these leads until we convert them to sales.
BTW, same goes to twitter.

If we can pull emails from mailchimp, then we could take advantage of this awesome venue.

I can get the email from a prospect in facebook with a click of a button. And it is genuine method to do it, no hack or anything illegal… The conversions are much higher because it is within facebook platform. The email with name goes to a mailing service like mail chimp. If we can pull these from mailchimp and set it automatically on a campaign, imagine the results!!!

2 way sync or pulling records from mail chimp would be highly beneficial to marketers!

This focusses on FB integration. My question was about Mailchimp bidirectional integration

As ascholten said, this is focused on fb integration and falls short of what’s needed.

I can use already made apple & cross-platform apps, very appealing and highly effective (with a high rate of lead acquisition -a lot better than a popup and opt-in forms). These work with mail services like mailchimp. Now, we need mautic to get the data from mailchimp so we can put it on a campaign.

Could be super great if this is done.

There are tools that allow us to get the customer email, name and even phone number to mailchimp with a click of a button. No need to fill any form. So the conversions are much higher. Now, getting those contacts pull from mailchimp into mautic would be fantastic.

I wonder if we can do it some way using zapier?
