MailChimp Integration

We partnered up with MailChimp, one of the world’s leading email marketing services, to integrate their emailing services within DonorBox. This manual was made to guide you through a simple integration process that will allow you to easily sync your donors with your mailing list, without the trouble of having to manually export all of your donor data!

Please note that the MailChimp integration costs $8 a month. We believe this is a great value for a tool that will save you a lot of time.

  1. DonorBox will automatically export all of your new donor data to MailChimp every time somebody makes a donation. You don’t have to do a thing! But, if necessary, you can also manually export your donors by clicking one of the two buttons below.

  1. Hello,
    I am researching into setting up donation, payment, shopping cart, email, etc., as I am looking at the features, costs, and integration of all of them in order to set up a system.
    I am wondering about integration with other email services besides Mailchimp, if and how this can be implemented, as manually moving customer data would be too cumbersome.

    Thank You,
    John Halderman

  2. What data is exported, exactly? I see the FNAME, LNAME, and EMAIL field defaults, but is it possible to send MERGE fields to MailChimp as well? e.g., The amount donated, campaign, answers to questions, etc.
