Adding Custom Fields in Mailchimp

Learn about adding custom fields inside of MailChimp. With this, you can use your connected Mailchimp account to send custom contact form fields from ClickFunnels to Mailchimp. If you have integrated MailChimp with ClickFunnels and wish to use custom information fields, this will teach you how.

Prior to getting started, you will need:

Step 1: Setup Your Merge Tags in Mailchimp

Important Note : Make sure to set Email as the ONLY required field. All other fields should be left unchecked. When adding address fields it is recommended to use the built-in address elements and setting the Mailchimp field address. If you would like to add input elements without the address element, you will need to add individual fields in Mailchimp as Text fields not address fields.
  1. From within your list, go to Settings .
  2. Select List fields and *|MERGE|* tags .
  3. Click Add A Field.
  4. Add a Text field for basic input elements (single field) or use an Address field for billing, shipping and two-step order forms elements. (Single field displayed below)
  5. Enter your Field label.
  6. Under the Put this tag in your content field, put in the desired name for the field in ClickFunnels (please see Step Two for details).

Step 2: Setup Your Custom Fields In ClickFunnels

For Single Input Elements

  1. From within your Optin page, add the required custom fields.
  2. Go to Custom Type and put the same name used in Put this tag in your content field in Mailchimp.
  3. Save the page.

When using shipping, billing and other order form elements, the default type is set to address. You will not need to change type.
