Loader Mailchimp

The Mailchimp loader allows you to:

  • Create new list(s),
  • Update existing list(s), 
  • Add members to a new list(s),
  • Add members to an existing list(s),
  • Update members data in an existing list(s),
  • Delete members from an existing list(s),

The only input parameter in the Mailchimp loader is an API key. The behaviour of the component is defined by the name(s) of the input CSV file(s) in Data In and its fields (columns).

Requirements

To set up the Mailchimp loader configuration, you will need a Mailchimp account with at least a manager level of access to obtain an API key.

Learn more: about user levels in Mailchimp, please refer to this article

Data In/Data Out

Data In

CSV files for the Mailchimp loader should be located in the `data/in/tables` folder.

The names and the structure of the tables are the key parameters for setting up the Mailchimp loader configuration. The structure of the input data is described below in the Configuration Parameters section.

Data Out N/A

Learn more: about the folder structure here.

Parameters

API Key (required)

The API Key allows accessing the data without sharing credentials with third-party applications and is needed for Meiro Integrations to get access to the Mailchimp data. 

The API key can be generated in Mailchimp account (manager level of access is needed) and copy-pasted to Meiro Integrations:   go to Account → Extras → API Keys → Create A Key → Copy API key

Input Data

The tables you provide will determine the component’s behaviour. The input table names are hardcoded and unambiguously determine the action of the component. 

An input table(s) for each action might contain many optional fields based on parameters described in Mailchimp API. To avoid redundancy in this article we will describe only required and the most important optional fields for each action.

Learn more:  the Mailchimp documentation to explore optional fields available for uploading.

 

Notation Conventions 


The following notation conventions are used:

  • Each action is followed by the name of the table(s) which determine the component’s behaviour.
  • Each field described as name | format/option | comments (if applicable).
  • Possible options if applicable are listed as follows: <option1, option2>.
  • Fields marked with * (below) are mandatory.
  • You can completely leave out the non-mandatory columns from the CSV table.
  • Boolean values must be either true or false (an empty string is treated as false).
  • Nested fields are separated from a parent with __ (double underscore aka the "dunder"). So, contact__company means that the company field is nested inside the contact. The same applies to merge tags.
