Add Zendesk Sell Contacts to MailChimp Automatically using Zapier

You can utilize Zapier to automatically send Zendesk Sell Contact information to MailChimp to create subscribers. If you have not yet checked out our general Zapier article you may want to do that now.

To get started you’ll need:

  • A Zapier account
  • A MailChimp account
  • A Zendesk Sell account

Click “Use this Zap” below or click on the link here to start the setup process.

Upon clicking the button above, a pop-up will appear. If it does not appear, please check your browser pop-up settings.

Choose Triggers

Select the "New Contact" trigger and click “Continue.” 


Connect Zendesk Sell Account

If you have not read the general Zapier article which includes how to connect your Sell account, you can do that now. Or, you can connect your Sell account within this step of the Zap creation. Once an account has been linked, select it and click “Save + Continue.”


If the Zendesk Sell account has been added and selected correctly, you will reach this passed test page:


Click "Save + Continue."

You will then be prompted to inform Zapier if the Zendesk Sell Contact is a Company. 


Test This Step

Select a data sample to pull into your account to test this Zap. 


Choose MailChimp Action

Next, select the "Add/Update Subscriber" MailChimp action and click "Continue."


Connect MailChimp Account

You will now be asked to connect your MailChimp account. Click the "Connect a New Account" button and a pop up will appear. More on that process here

When completed, click “Save + Continue.”


Map your MailChimp Data

From the drop-down menu, select your MailChimp List and click 'Continue.'


Test your Zap

A test of your Zap with sample data will now appear. If the information looks correct click “Create & Continue.” If everything was completed properly, the following message will appear:


Clicking “Finish” will complete the Zap and turn it on. Congrats! You did it! Now when you create a new Contact in Sell they will automatically be added to the MailChimp subscriber list of your choosing.
