The Mailchimp extractor uses the Mailchimp API to extract data from mailing lists sent by the Mailchimp service. It downloads configured reports for all specified accounts, importing data such as list and members, campaigns, automations, reports, reports with click details, member activity, etc.
To gain access to the Mailchimp API, log in to Mailchimp, go to your Account detail, and under Extras find the option to generate your API Key. It will look like this: c40xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx-us13.
In the Extractors section, find Mailchimp and create a new configuration. Name it.
Fill in the data center for your account, your account username and the API key:
Then name the storage bucket where your results will be stored.
To configure what data you want to extract, select the configuration template you want to use. Or switch to the JSON editor for advanced extractions.
Save the configuration before you run the extraction.
For more features, switch the configuration to the Power User Mode by clicking the Switch to JSON editor link. JSON configuration uses the Generic extractor format.
If you select a campaign (let’s say Reports) and want to specify more details using the advanced mode, don’t forget to click Save first. The code will be pre-filled based on that particular template.
Each user account is permitted up to 10 simultaneous connections, and you’ll receive an error message if you reach the limit. Mailchimp does not throttle based on volume.
Note: currently there are no options to raise that limit on a per-customer basis.
