If you are using another mass email provider and want to integrate with MyBasicCRM, please email to our support address: support@mybasiccrm.com.


Go to your Mailchimp account settings for creating 'API keys'. Please create a new API key, be sure that it is enabled and then copy it.

MyBasicCRM will create a new audience and campaign in your Mailchimp account. Please be patient; it takes some time to appear in your account.
Your each contact will receive an email with your template:

You may need to upgrade your Mailchimp account if you want to add more audiences.
If you decide to use the free or limited versions, delete your old audience (and campaign if necessary) in your Mailchimp account each time before sending mass emails. You can still follow campaign status through MyBasicCRM, as explained in the following slides.

MyBasicCRM does not sync your contacts with Mailchimp with this integration. A new audience will be created for each campaign. If you need to sync MyBasicCRM contacts with your Mailchimp audiences, don't hesitate to contact us at our support address: support@mybasiccrm.com.
