  • We would love to integrate your MailChimp account with your website or landing page.
  • Once we have set up this integration for you, your website visitors will be automatically subscribed to your Mailchimp autoresponder from any form on your site e.g your checkout page or popup or comment form.
  • Sounds cool right? Before we start, let`s learn a little more about how Mailchimp is set up.



  • Mailchimp accounts have up to five levels of access available for users: Viewer, Author, Manager, Admin, and Owner.
  • Both the Owner and Admin can invite other users to join, and they can assign user levels.
  • Your pricing plan determines the number of seats and levels of access available to you.
  • In this short article, you'll learn the differences among user levels and how to grant us temporary access to your account.


What Are The Available Mailchimp User levels?

  • Owner
    The Owner serves as the primary contact for the account. Owners can perform all actions in the account, including inviting new users, editing billing information, and closing the account.
  • Admin
    The Admin has the same permissions as the Owner.
  • Manager
    The Manager can create and send campaigns, import audiences, and view reports, but can't view billing information, export audiences, or close the account.
  • Author
    The Author can create, edit, and delete campaigns and templates, and view reports.
  • Viewer
    The Viewer can view reports in the account.


How To Grant Us Access To Your Account

  • The Account users page displays the names, usernames, and user levels for everyone with access to your Mailchimp account.
  • From this page, you can revoke access, view pending account invitations, and re-send or cancel invitation emails.
  • You can invite up to 5 new account users in a 24 hour period.
