Atom8‘s native Mailchimp integration makes it easy to keep your BigCommerce customers and Atom8 lists in sync, nurture new customers, send appreciation emails after a purchase, and segment customers based on their activities & behaviors on the BigCommerce store.

Excited? If you’re a Mailchimp user, you’re in for a treat — you can now do things with Atom8 you couldn’t do before.

Subscribe your customers to Mailchimp list

Use this action to subscribe a contact to your Mailchimp list in an Atom8 workflow. You can now subscribe contacts to your Mailchimp lists based on their behaviors or Atom8’s segmentation features such as customer grouping, adding customer attributes.

Some great use cases include:

1. When customer lifetime value exceeds $5000, auto-segment them into “Gold” group on BigCommerce store & tag customer as “Gold” on Mailchimp at the same time.

Send automated emails

This action is perfect for engaging with your customers following their actions on the BigCommerce store such as customer creation, order placements, etc. You can set up workflows to automatically send emails with a premade template, from a custom email subject, sender email & name:

1. When an order is placed, auto-trigger a “thank-you” email to the customer and a coupon code for future orders, encouraging up-sales & cross-sales.

2. When a customer has refunded an order, auto-tag “Refund customer” on Mailchimp. Then, send an automated “apology” email to the customer and offer alternatives.
