Integration der E-Mail-Validierung für Mailchimp

The MailChimp integration service at ZeroBounce allows users to import email addresses from their audiences in MailChimp, utilize our services to validate those emails, and then export the validation results back to MailChimp.

When importing an audience from MailChimp to ZeroBounce using the integration service, only the email address information in the MailChimp audience will be imported. Also, the subscriber’s status in your MailChimp audience needs to be “subscribed”. We do not import any subscribers with statuses of “unsubscribed”, “cleaned”, or “pending”.

Only the audiences imported from MailChimp will be able to export the validation results back to MailChimp. When exporting the validation results, instead of creating a new audience at MailChimp, we only tag each subscriber in the audience using the validation results. Seven tag names based on the validation status are used. They are ZB_Valid, ZB_Invalid, ZB_Abuse, ZB_Spamtrap, ZB_DoNotMail, ZB_Unknow, and ZB_CatchAll. We recommend filtering your MailChimp audience by tag name ZB_Valid only before sending out your campaign.

To use this integration service, you need a valid MailChimp account first. You will be prompted to enter your MailChimp Username and Password when you use the service. We integrated our platform with MailChimp using OAuth2 for authorization. OAuth2 is a secure process that allows our application to access MailChimp without passing user credentials. As your security is our priority at Zerobounce, we do not store your MailChimp Username and Password; the access token issued by MailChimp will be destroyed after you close the browser or log off from our website.

Please note that when importing an audience from MailChimp to ZeroBounce, MailChimp allows up to 500 contacts at a time on each API call. If your audience contains many contacts, you may encounter a time out issue. In this case, you can manually download your MailChimp audience and upload it through our Upload Your File web page.

Im Folgenden finden Sie ein Beispiel für die Verwendung des MailChimp-Integrationsdienstes.

  1. Have a valid MailChimp account with your audience ready.

Depending on the size of the contacts, it may take some time to finish the process. At the end you will be redirected to the Download Your Results webpage.
