How to send Contact Form 7 data to Mailchimp List

In this post i will show you how you can integrate Contact form 7 with your Mailchimp account.
Today i am going to write in brief that how we can send Contact Form 7 data to Mailchimp list. As we know Mailchimp is one of the most popular choice for email marketing but i am not going to dive into mailchimp and its functionality but later in some other post.

So lets focus on our today’s post and for this purpose first of all Install and activate the Contact Form 7 and second plugin that will send data to mailchimp is “Contact Form 7 MailChimp Extension” by Renzo Johnson.

Go ahead and install and activate this plugin. After installation and Activation of both the plugins go to the Contact Form 7 from your WordPress Dashboard and open the Contact form that you want to use to send data to mailchimp and there you will notice a new Tab with the name of MailChimp but before editing this part please go to your Mailchimp account and Create a new List if you have’t created any yet. After creating a list go to Signup form and create a form.

Note: When you will click on Signup form Mailchimp will provide you with Name and Email fields already and if you are planning to capture just Name and Email of user than you don’t need to edit this part but if you wish to capture more information than Add relevant fields from right hand side while creating a form in mailchimp as in my case i want to gather the informations like Name, Email, Color, Zipcode and City so i have created all these fields in mailchimp form.

While Adding a new field in Mailchimp Signup form from right side you will see Field label and Field tag, Label is the label of field while tag is more important in order to get the data in that particular field and for your own sake please keep Field tag same as label although its not compulsory but it will be easy to remember. After completing the form move back to the Contact form editing and create a form there as well with same fields as we created in Mailchimp.

After creating a contact form click on the MailChimp Tab and now you will see some options as on top you will see Subscriber name and than Email, just copy name and Email Tags from your contact form and paste here and below them we have two very important fields of MailChimp API Key and MailChimp List ID.

For List ID Click on Lists in your Mailchimp dashboard and than Click on the List name and from the menu click on Settings and than List name and defaults and there on right side you will see a List ID in red color, Copy this ID and paste in contact form field, see the screenshot below . Save the changes and open it up in the browser and it will send contact form data in a Mailchimp list(incase you only need to capture Name and Email).

If you wish to capture some more info from the user like i said before that in my case i also want to capture Color, Zipcode and City fields from users, so in order to get this done you need to look in the above screenshot and at the bottom of the above screenshot you will see a button with the name of Show advanced setting with a blue burger icon, click on it and you will something like the image below.

Here first option is of Enable Double Opt-in, check this box if you would like your Subscribers to confirm their emails before sending their data to the Subsription List and below this check the Use Custom Fields box and it will reveal some fields, in the left fields paste the contact form shortcode tag and on the right side paste the Field Tag(remember form field tags in Mailchimp that i mentioned above) from Mailchimp form. Click the Save button and you are done. Open your form in the browser fill the fields and Submit the form, Refresh your Mailchimp account List page and you will see that all the contact form fields are there now.
