Mailchimp Integration Guide

Your email list is the most important marketing tool to spread the word, make sales, and grow your business. Send your Olark chat participants to a designated Mailchimp list using our Olark to Mailchimp integration.


In order to connect Olark and Mailchimp, you must first have an Olark account and a Mailchimp account. If you don't already have an account with Olark, sign up here.

Setup Steps

To add Olark visitors to your Mailchimp mailing lists by typing a command in chat, follow these simple steps:

  1. Log into Olark, go to the Mailchimp integration page and click Authenticate.
