MailChimp and Zoey are now connected. Zoey customers will be added your list, and e-commerce data will be added to MailChimp’s subscriber profiles. Guest checkouts will be added to the Transactional section of your list.
Products, customers, and orders will be sent to MailChimp approximately every five minutes
After you connect, you can do a lot with the the data you collect, like build segments, send automations, track purchases, make product recommendations, and view results.

Order Confirmation Emails
If you're not receiving New Order Confirmation Emails, you will need to set up a new order notification automation so that it pairs with the current store connection.
First and Last Name are Required
If you're not seeing your subscribers you may want to check if your MailChimp list requires first and last name. If those are required all Guest Subscriptions are being rejected.
There are two ways to fix this:
- Enter a default first and last name into Apps > MailChimp configuration
- Change the settings on the list in the MailChimp admin to not require first name and last name.
