    Hey guys,

    I am about to start a wordpress blog and I have some question when it comes to connections between wordpress & mailchimp.
    Basically, some articles (or articles parts) will only be available for members of my site. They would have to sign up & log in through wordpress in order to access that content. My concern is, I'm trying to build a mailing list at the same time. I'm considering mailchimp because it's free up to 2,000 emails and I havent heard that many complaints about it.
    So my question is; How easy is it to convert my wordpress members into mailchimp subscribers so that it would be transparent for the user ?


    thanks in advance.

    Hi TayaX, I don't think MailChimp would be the perfect solution to you. If I may recommend you a solution, I would recommend 'Sendy': that's a script you can run from your own website (just like: newsletter.domain.com). It has a nice integration with WordPress (and members) and you will be able to create multiple lists.

    Well thank you never heard of that. I'll start to check & read the reviews.

    Beside that I have found a solution for mailchimp:
    Simple WordPress Membership + Simple Membership MailChimp Integration. It comes 100% free that's the good point of it.

    I never heard of the Simple WordPress Membership plugin before. However, if this works for you, it's all good :)

    I didn't know about that plugin, either. I might give it a try on one of my sites (I've had a few people contact me asking if I had a membership section for one of the sites).

    This plugin was a discovery for me as well. I see it's updated regularly, so - why not give it a try :D.

    I decided to move on with your idea as well: Mailchimp has a better interface and would be very useful to send out newsletters. Are you willing to share your URL through PM to share experiences?

    Well better than that, I'll create a facebook group (closed one of course) so we can keep in touch with our experiences. I'm still under development.
