How it works
Once you have connected your Mailchimp and SupaDupa accounts together as described in the Connecting with your Mailchimp account above, visitors and customers to your website and store will be able to subscribers to your mailing list without leaving your site. The following describes how this integration works across your site.
Subscribers at the checkout
Now when your customers opt-in at checkout using the "Subscribe to our newsletter" option, their details (email address, first name and last name) will be added to your nominated Mailchimp list. This all happens automatically once the order has been successfully placed.
Subscribers from your website/store
All the new themes now have a Mailchimp subscribe box built-in by default.
Once you have connected your Mailchimp account to your SupaDupa account, the subscribe boxes will automatically appear within any of the compatible themes.
The following themes (+ all future themes) have all been enabled to support the Mailchimp subscribe boxes automatically:
The Generic Mobile theme also has this built in by default.
Subscribe box - Mushi
Subscribe box - TLA
Subscribe box - Sidekick
NOTE: If you are currently using customised versions of one of the above themes, it may be necessary to start again with a fresh SupaDupa version of the theme to get the updates.
