Syncing Lists from MailChimp

MailChimp uses lists to store the emails of customers that signed up at checkout or on your store front. MailChimp only lets you sync one list at a time to your store. 

1. Start by creating a List on MailChimp. See MailChimp's documentation for instructions on Getting Started with Lists.

2. Once you have created a List, log into your BigCommerce Store as Store Owner and go to Apps › MailChimp.

3. If you have more than one MailChimp List, there will be a drop-down menu where you can select which List you want to sync to the store. Select the List you want to sync.

4. Click the Start Syncing button to connect the list to your store.
