In this tutorial I am going to show how you can sync any member preferences updates in Mailchimp audiences to WordPress users.
Sometimes I’m getting asked to add this functionality to my Simple Mailchimp Sync plugin, but every time I’m starting writing the code, I always come to a conclusion that the plugin will become “not simple” at all. So now it is possible only with a free add-on (or you can use code examples below for sure). Everything we need is just a little bit of configuration in Mailchimp account and a small code snippet.
Since there is Simple Mailchimp Sync plugin on my site that allows to automatically subscribe WordPress users to Mailchimp audiences, from time to time I receive a question – is it possible to do the opposite? To connect Mailchimp list to a WordPress website somehow and create users from the emails?
Something like this:
The answer is yes for sure and in this tutorial let’s figure it out how to do that.
In this tutorial we are going to update user’s first and last names in WordPress profile and sync the changes with Mailchimp audience fields. You can also check the basic guide how to work with Mailchimp API in WordPress.
I already have a tutorial on how to subscribe a user to an audience after registration on WordPress website. It is know to find out how to do the opposite (from Mailchimp to WordPress).
