Syncing additional customer data fields from to MailChimp

Hi All,

I'm currently setting up my store and have decided to use MailChimp for my email marketing. My website is a wedding website and I want to use MailChimp to send out Wedding Reminder emails to people signed up to my mailing list based on the date of the wedding. Eg. 9 months to go, 3 months to go, 2 weeks to go etc.

I can do this using MailChimps Automation feature, however to achieve this I need to capture my customers wedding date when they sign up to my mailing list or create a customer account.

I have worked out how to do this for mailing list sign up via a customised embedded MailChimp SignUp Form, however this subscriber info just goes to MailChimp and does not appear in the Shopify Customer tab, as it would if I used the Shopify Newsletter Sign Up Form included in my theme (Debut). - Not ideal.

Is there a way to use the embedded MailChimp SignUp Form and get this data to sync to the Shopify Customer tab in my dashboard? Or a way to add an additional field to the Shopify Newsletter Sign Up Form included in my theme to capture wedding date which would then sync to MailChimp?

I would like to capture this info on the Customer Create Account Page. I have managed to add a tickbox to say they agree to marketing emails which feeds through to the Customer Page in my dashboard (using info here: https://help.shopify.com/themes/customization/communication/get-consent-for-promotional-emails), I have also added and additional form field which captures wedding date and appends the info to the Customer Notes section in the dashboard (using instructions here: https://help.shopify.com/themes/customization/communication/get-more-information-with-customer-regis...).

The new customer info automatically syncs with MailChimp - however the new Wedding Date Field does not. How do I get this to sync, or is there a betterway of capturing this info?

I would also like to capture this info if a customer signs up to an account after checkout - but I have no idea how to do this, any ideas would be appreciated?

Am I approaching this in the right way?

Thanks for your help in advance.

Also wanted to bump this and see if there was a solution. I used this technique (links to Shopify help page) to add custom data fields (gender, age, etc) to my Shopify account creation form. It stores this additional data as a "Customer Note." I'm trying to figure out how to get MailChimp to pull in this data.

Hi Zoe,

The technical term for these extra fields is 'MetaField' - see https://help.shopify.com/en/themes/liquid/objects/metafield

That page has a link to a list of apps that manage these MetaFields. As far as copying/syncing the fields over to MailChimp, I'm not sure, other than knowing the MailChimp app doesn't do it. Maybe you could take a look at the MetaField apps to see if one does?

I have an app that adds data to the Customer but I pull the fields all out into a CSV file and then import that into MailChimp for marketing purposes.
