This module allows you to create and update Mailchimp list subscriptions via a Silverstripe app/website.


It supports:

  • a subscription controller
  • multiple configuration records for setting multiple list/audience combinations
  • multiple forms on the same page, for the same list
  • a spam protection module
  • a default configuration record assigned in Settings/SiteConfig
  • configurable defaults in yaml
  • queued jobs to handle subscription and failure checking
  • a Mailchimp model admin to view current subscriptions and subscription results
  • an Elemental subscription form element - documentation
  • merge fields support
  • tags for subscribers
  • ability to submit a form with or without (via XHR) redirecting
  • patch previously subscribed list/audience members
  • optionally remove current subscriber tags

It doesn't support:

  • Managing audience members, use the Mailchimp administration area for that.


  • Configure your Mailchimp API key and list (audience). You will find this in the Mailchimp account settings and relevant audience, respectively.
  • In your website, set up one or more configurations
  • Assign one of those as the default for the website
  • Ensure queues are running, or get a developer to do this for you.
  • Test a subscription to your lists

Further documentation beyond the basics is available


Example project configuration:

Name: app-mailchimp
  - '#silverstripe-chimple'
  # account API key
  api_key: '<api key>'
  # default list id
  list_id: '<list id>'

Further integration

Spam protection

Use a spam protection module to block spammy submission attempts on the form. The NSWDPC reCAPTCHAv3 module is a good option.

If a module is installed, the subscription form will detect this and enable the default spam protector on the form.


See composer.json


The only supported method of installation is via composer:

composer require nswdpc/silverstripe-chimple
