How to set up Mailchimp integration

Obee’s Mailchimp integration seamlessly syncs the names and email addresses of your guests between your Obee and Mailchimp accounts. Guests who have opted in to receive email marketing will be synced to your chosen Mailchimp audience. Best of all, it’s two-way! If a guest unsubscribes from your email newsletters, their Obee guest profile will automatically be updated to reflect this.
Once enabled, new guest data will automatically be sent to your Mailchimp account. Existing guest data can be exported from your Obee account (see: How to export your marketing list) and imported into your Mailchimp account.
