SSV MailChimp is a plugin that allows you to link other SSV plugins to MailChimp. With this plugin you can:

  • Create lists for event registrants (requires SSV Events),
  • Create members in list on user registration (requires SSV Users),
  • Update user meta to MailChimp Merge Fields (requires SSV Users),
  • Etc.

This plugin is fully compatible with the SSV library which can add functionality like: Users, Events, etc.


  1. Upload the plugin files to the `/wp-content/plugins/ssv-mailchimp` directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress.
  3. Use the SSV Options->MailChimp screen to configure the plugin.
  4. (Make your instructions match the desired user flow for activating and installing your plugin. Include any steps that might be needed for explanatory purposes.)


MailChimp API Key Here you paste the API Key generated by MailChimp.
Max Request The Max Request specifies the maximum amount of Merge Tags that are fetched from MailChimp. Default this will be set to 10.


Users List This is the mailing list in mailchimp where all members will be synced to.
Links Below the the Users List there is a button “Add Link” that allows you to specify a link between users fields to merge tags.
