How to export your HTML email to Mailchimp

  1. To export your design to Mailchimp, click on “Share” > “Mailchimp”
  2. Mailchimp will then ask you for the API key you generated earlier.
  3. Click on “Export” to upload your design to Mailchimp.
  4. In MailChimp, go to template preview mode so that the design will display properly. Remember, if you want to make changes to your design, you should do this in Mail Designer 365 and not in Mailchimp. Learn more
  5. You can now use your Mail Designer 365 HTML design with the automation tools provided in the Mailchimp platform.
