Frequently Asked Questions
Does this integration cost anything?
No, it is free to all paid Kickserv customers. Mailchimp is free for up to 2,000 contacts. See Mailchimp directly for their pricing.
When I add a new contact or updated a contact's email in Kickserv, how long does that take to sync to Mailchimp?
Typically in only takes a few seconds!
What contacts are NOT synced?
If a contact is marked inactive or if a contact does not have an email address, they are not synced to Mailchimp. If you have old and irrelevant contacts, you can mark them inactive so they don't sync or you can archive the contacts once they get over to Mailchimp so they don't go against your number of contacts.
For now, I only want Kickserv to sync new contacts and updated contacts. Can I do this?
Yes, when setting up the integration:
1) DO check the 'Keep Mailchimp in sync with Kickserv' box
2) Do NOT click the 'Send all contacts to Mailchimp' button
3) Click Save
You can always go back and 'Sync all contacts' when you're ready.
I do not want Kickserv and Mailchimp to stay in sync. What if I only want a one-time sync of all my existing contacts?

2) DO click the 'Send all contacts to Mailchimp' button
3) Click Save
If I update a contact's email address is Kickserv will it update in Mailchimp?
Yes, as long as you have checked the 'Keep Mailchimp in sync with Kickserv' box

You can do all of that from your Mailchimp account.
