Ecomz has implemented one of the best marketing automation platforms to its app store to help merchants reach out in bulk to their customers and potential customers in order to boost their sales. ■ What is MailChimp? MailChimp is a marketing automation platform and an email marketing service. Whether it’s a marketing email or an update, contacting all of your customers can be difficult and time-consuming.

Go to www.mailchimp.com and create your account. Once you're done, click on your account name on the bottom left corner (1) of the current page, and choose Account (2). You'll be redirected to a new page where you are to select "extra" from the menu > API keys. Scroll down and copy your API key for later use. ■ Activate MailChimp After activating the "Mailchimp" Feature on Ecomz. Navigate to the Admin Menu (on the left) > Apps. Locate "MailChimp" under "active features" and click on settings. You'll be asked to insert your API key for activation, the one you copied before.
