Today I've received an email from MailChimp with the information of the termination of The MailChimp for Shopify Integration. The integration is supposed to be on for people who are already using it through May 12 but after that date, we are going to need a new e-mail marketing service to use with our Shopify store.
As the MailChimp was really easy to use, it is not good news and I need a suggestion of email marketing service working good with Shopify, easy to use, to switch after May.
Solved! Go to the solution
I guess the easiest option is to switch to Omnisend, they have the same integrations and you can use them for free.
They are also offering 30% off for 3 months: OMNI30X3
Here's more info:
We can confirm that Mailchimp is no longer available on the Shopify app store. If you would like to learn more about why this decision was made, you can find a full explanation on this forum post here.
We understand and appreciate that email marketing is an integral part of your marketing initiatives. If you are looking for alternative options, we offer a wide variety of email marketing apps that can be found in the Shopify App Store.
If you've loved using MailChimp, you might also like trying out MailerLite integration for Shopify - those tools are real look-alikes. MailerLite doesn't have many reviews on Shopify yet as it just recently updated its integration, so don't be surprised. It is also worth knowing that MailerLite has forever free plan so you can try it as long as you like. I know switching is usually not the easiest thing to do, but they have great 24/7 customer support to help you out with every question you have. Both tools have easy to use drag and drop builders and share the same functionality. I also love their values and business ethics, so I might be a little biased. But it is 100% worth checking out: https://www.mailerlite.com/
