Laravel 5 wrapper for the Mailchimp API with multiple connections.

StyleCI Build Status

// Return the users on the Mailchimp account.

// Dependency injection example.


Require this package, with Composer, in the root directory of your project.

composer require bluebaytravel/mailchimp

Add the service provider to config/app.php in the providers array.


If you want you can use the facade. Add the reference in config/app.php to your aliases array.

'Mailchimp' => BlueBayTravel\Mailchimp\Facades\Mailchimp::class


Laravel Mailchimp requires connection configuration. To get started, you'll need to publish all vendor assets:

php artisan vendor:publish

This will create a ./config/mailchimp.php file in your app that you can modify to set your configuration. Also, make sure you check for changes to the original config file in this package between releases.

Default Connection Name

This option default is where you may specify which of the connections below you wish to use as your default connection for all work. Of course, you may use many connections at once using the manager class. The default value for this setting is main.

Mailchimp Connections

This option connections is where each of the connections are setup for your application. Example configuration has been included, but you may add as many connections as you would like.



The Mailchimp class is a wrapper around mailchimp\mailchimp package.


This is the class of most interest. It is bound to the ioc container as mailchimp and can be accessed using the Facades\Mailchimp facade. This class implements the ManagerInterface by extending AbstractManager. The interface and abstract class are both part of Graham Campbell's Laravel Manager package, so you may want to go and checkout the docs for how to use the manager class over at that repository. Note that the connection class returned will always be an instance of BlueBayTravel\Mailchimp\Mailchimp.


This facade will dynamically pass static method calls to the mailchimp object in the ioc container which by default is the MailchimpManager class.


This class contains no public methods of interest. This class should be added to the providers array in config/app.php. This class will setup ioc bindings.


Here you can see an example of just how simple this package is to use. Out of the box, the default adapter is main. After you enter your authentication details in the config file, it will just work:

// You can alias this in config/app.php.
use BlueBayTravel\Mailchimp\Facades\Mailchimp;


The Mailchimp manager will behave like it is a BlueBayTravel\Mailchimp\Mailchimp. If you want to call specific connections, you can do that with the connection method:

use BlueBayTravel\Mailchimp\Facades\Mailchimp;

// Writing this…

// identical to writing this

// and is also identical to writing this.

// This is because the main connection is configured to be the default.
Mailchimp::getDefaultConnection(); // This will return main.

// We can change the default connection.
Mailchimp::setDefaultConnection('alternative'); // The default is now alternative.

If you prefer to use dependency injection over facades like me, then you can inject the manager:

use BlueBayTravel\Mailchimp\MailchimpManager;

class Foo
    protected $mailchimp;

    public function __construct(MailchimpManager $mailchimp)
        $this->mailchimp = $mailchimp;

    public function bar($id)
