Before you start
Here are some things to know before you start this process.

How it works
When you connect your Shopware 5 store to Mailchimp, we’ll add your Shopware customer email addresses and their orders to your Mailchimp account. Orders will be stored in contact profiles and campaign reports.
You'll collect more contacts as customers purchase from your store, and future orders will sync to Mailchimp automatically. If you have the plugin installed, new customers will have the option to opt-in to your marketing.
