Mailchimp’s Marketplace gives you the opportunity to buy professionally designed email templates that address specific marketing needs. Once you purchase an email template, it’s automatically added to your account where you can duplicate and customize it with your own images, text, and branding.
In this article, you’ll learn how to buy a template from the Mailchimp Marketplace and duplicate it in your account so you can customize it.
