Yes! MailChimp, the popular marketing platform has decided to part ways with Shopify citing privacy concerns for its users due to Shopify’s new partnership agreement. Shopify accuses Mailchimp of providing poor merchant experience.
Hence, both parties are accusing each other of not respecting each other’s concerns related to customer privacy and data. MailChimp has ended the contract with Shopify and merchants who use MailChimp may now have to explore new options to market their online stores.
Shopify users will not able to use Mailchimp services from “12th May 2019”
“Even though our native integration will no longer be available, our customers can choose from several third-party integrations to connect their accounts” – says MailChimp
What Next For Merchants Who Use Mailchimp,
MailChimp is used by many online merchants to popularize their online stores through bulk email facility offered by the marketing platform. However, it is no longer a viable option for email marketing after this divorce.
If you are a Shopify merchant, you can consider the below-mentioned options to continue with your marketing campaign for your E-Commerce store.
