How to switch from Mailchimp to MailerLite

It only takes a few simple steps to switch from Mailchimp to MailerLite using our Mailchimp integration.

To switch to MailerLite once your account has been approved:

  1. Navigate to Subscribers.

  2. Click the Add subscribers button.

  3. Click on the Import from Mailchimp tab.

  4. Click the Connect button to access and log in to your Mailchimp account.

  1. Select the lists you wish to import to MailerLite.

  2. Now it’s time to match fields. Match the Mailchimp subscriber fields with fields in MailerLite. If a particular field does not exist, you can create a new field on the spot.

  3. Select the group(s) you’d like to import your subscribers into. Groups in MailerLite are like tags in Mailchimp.

Note: If the group you’ve selected is the trigger group for an automation, you will be able to choose whether or not to add the newly imported subscribers to that automation.

If you have already exported your subscribers from Mailchimp, you just need to import your subscribers to MailerLite.

If you’d prefer to manually export an audience from Mailchimp and import them to MailerLite, you can do so by following these steps:

  1. In MailChimp, click the Audience icon.

  2. Click All contacts.

  3. If you have more than one audience, click the Current audience drop-down and choose the one you want to export.

  4. Click Export audience.

  1. After the export loads, click Export as CSV to download the file to your computer.
