  10. If you have an existing download, click edit. You will see the Mailchimp dropdown box. Select your list and save.

That’s all there is to it. Now every time a user verifies their email address it will be automatically be added to your MailChimp contact list.

Things to be aware of when your testing:

  1. I noticed a very slight delay when email addresses are added, but it’s minimal. Less than one minute usually

  2. The users email address will only be added after they land on the landing page, not when they submit the form. This is done to keep you in compliance with Mailchimps terms.
