Every Mailchimp account has an Owner who serves as the default primary contact and has all user permissions. If you're an account Owner or Admin, you can transfer account ownership to any other user who has access to the account.
In this article, you'll learn how to transfer ownership of your account.
Before you start
Here are some things to know before you begin this process.
Depending on your plan, you may not have access to multiple user levels. To find out what features are included in each plan, check out our pricing page.
An account can have only one Owner, but there can be multiple Admins.
Account Owners can't change their own user type directly, but they can assign another user as an Owner. When a different user becomes the Owner, the previous owner automatically becomes an Admin.
The primary account contact defaults to the account Owner. If you switch ownership and want to change your primary account contact information, you can make any necessary changes from the account profile page.
To transfer account ownership from one user to another, follow these steps.
