To integrate MailChimp with your Shopify store, you will need:

To begin, you’ll need to get a form action URL from MailChimp. You can find the form action URL in your MailChimp account dashboard. The following steps show you how to find your form action URL, and how to add it to your theme by using the theme editor.

Get the form code from MailChimp

  1. Log in to your MailChimp account.
  2. From your account Dashboard, click Lists in the navigation menu.
    Mailchimp click lists
  3. Find the list you want to connect to your Shopify store, click the v button, and choose Signup forms.
    Mailchimp click signup forms


    Clicking Signup forms might take you to the Settings page if your list is not configured correctly. To continue, configure your list and save the settings, then click Signup formsat the top of the Settings page.

  4. Click Select on the Embedded forms option.
    Mailchimp select embedded forms
  5. On the Embedded forms page, click Naked.
    Mailchimp click naked
  6. Find the Copy/paste onto your site section.


    You don’t need all of this code — just the form action URL. In the next section, you’ll separate that URL from the rest of the code.
