Step 3: Synchronizing subscribers list with MailChimp

From Plumrocket Documentation

Before you start mailing using the MailChimp System you should synchronize the list of your clients (those who have subscribed for the mailing) with the MailChimp System first.


Attention green.png Important Information:

To make sure all your clients receive newsletters from your Private Sales Store, you will have to repeat this step every time before you start another mailing campaign.
For instance, since you last sent newsletters to your clients on 04/19/2012, 20 more clients registered at your website. To add these clients to the Mailing List on MailChimp, you will have to repeat Step 3. This will allow you to add new clients to the Mailing List.
