This integration selects new Mailchimp subscribers and imports them to Xero as contacts.

Note: The integration does not create duplicates. If a contact with such email already exists, the integration updates it.

Note: It does not import pre-existing Mailchimp subscribers to Xero contacts.


Mailchimp connection must have specific settings:

  • API Version must be set to Ver3;
  • Merge Fields Behavior must be set to Join Common Merge Fields.

How to Set Up

  1. Select or create connections: Mailchimp connection for Source and Xero connection for Target.
  2. Specify the Mailchimp list to select subscribers from:
    1. Open the import task
    2. On the Source Definition of your import task, in filters, specify the name of the Mailchimp list to get subscribers from instead of Enter your list name....
    3. Save the task.
  3. Specify the schedule, on which the integration will run automatically.


  • If you need to create or update Xero contacts only for specific new Mailchimp subscribers, you can add more filter conditions for the source subscribers.
  • To import Mailchimp subscribers from multiple lists, add more similar filters with different list names and use OR operator.
  • To import Mailchimp subscribers from all your Mailchimp lists, remove filters.
