Leaky Paywall MailChimp Addon

Configuring the Leaky Paywall MailChimp Addon

Leaky Paywall MailChimp settings

1. After installing the plugin, go to Leaky Paywall > MailChimp in your WordPress admin.

2. Enter your license key and click “Save Settings” to receive automatic updates.

3. Enter your MailChimp API key and click “Save Settings”. If you need help finding your API key, click here.

4. After entering a valid MailChimp API key, the Default MailChimp List setting will populate with all the lists in your MailChimp account. Select the list you would like to add new subscribers to. You have the option to override this default list on a per level basis.

5. To automatically add new paid level subscribers to MailChimp, check the box next to Enable Paid Level Subscribe. This will also allow you to set a different MailChimp list on a per level basis. (see step #6)

6. To add new subscribers to a different list depending on what level they subscribe to, go to Leaky Paywall > Settings. Scroll to the Subscription Levels section and edit the MailChimp List setting for each level to select a different list than the default list.


7. If you are using a free subscription level on your site, checking the Enable Opt-in checkbox will display an opt-in checkbox on your free registration form.


8. You can adjust the opt-in text that the user will see when they subscribe for your free level by entering it into the Form Label setting.

9. You can enable Double Opt-In for all MailChimp subscriptions by checking the box for Double Opt-in. A double opt-in signup helps verify that you have permission to send mail to a subscriber. The user will receive an email that confirms their MailChimp subscription before they are added to the list.

Creating and Assigning Tags

You can set tags on a per-level basis. When a subscriber registers for that level, those tags will get applied to their subscriber info in Mailchimp. This lets you filter and create campaigns in Mailchimp based on those tags. 

To add more than one tag, enter a comma-separated list of tags. (i.e. monthly, likes cats, enjoys mountains)
